I Love You Phillip Morris (Blu-ray Review)
22 April 2011
Conclusion: Leave all of your pre-conceived notions about the subject matter at the door, because I Love You Phillip Morris has more class, laughs, and a better story in the first five minutes than many of those contemporary “straight” films have in their entire 90 minute running times. There. I said it.
Excerpt: All Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) wants to do is experience life: The luxuries, the splendor, the vacations, and the romance. So what if he has to defraud a major medical corporation? So what if he has to escape prison countless times? So what if he’s living on the lam?
Conclusion: From the writers of 'Bad Santa,' 'I Love You Phillip Morris' is a surprisingly entertaining dark dramedy with Glenn Ficarra and John Requa making their directorial debut.

Excerpt: Det slår gnistor mellan Ewan McGregor och Jim Carrey i en film om den gifta mannen som inte längre orkas låtsas att han inte är gay. Det är skratt varvat med drama i en film full av starka rollprestationer och genomtänkt regi.
Excerpt: Det är svårt att förutse vilka nervtrådar som lockar nostalgirusen till nafs. Närapå omöjligt. Igår fick jag exempelvis bevittna hur fingertopparna slöt sig runt Bill Murrays datummara Groundhog Day aka Måndag hela veckan, kvällen innan knaprades fläsksvål framför Die Hard, och imorgon, ja imorgon...
