  • Summary: "I Love You Phillip Morris" is a heart warm comedy that gives its best to the audience with the funny, usual performance by Jim Carrey and girlish acting by Ian Mcgregor.

  • Summary: Not funny, not original. Jim Carrey plays the same character he played twenty years ago in Pet Detective, and it doesn't work anymore. His character is so over the top, it's like a cartoon character who gets run over multiple times and emerges without a scratch. Sad to see that certain actors do not evolve when they get older... In short, unbearable to watch.

  • Summary: I'm usually a fan of his more "serious" role, but Jim Carrey is not aging well. Although this film is his all the way -- everyone else in it is forgettable -- his character veers between winsome, mistreated loser and pathological, lying con man, neither one generating much empathy. The result is a story that feels like it would've made a better magazine article than a movie.

  • Summary: Something about this movie rubbed me the wrong way. First, I thought it was black comedy and/or farce that didn't work for me. But, much more so, it was the inauthenticity of the main character that gave me a strong negative visceral reaction. Yet, although I was uncomfortable while watching, I was never bored. And I did find myself thinking about the film afterward.

  • Summary: Loved this movie. Carrey is outstanding yet he has a firm grip on McGregor. Ive read theories on why this film didn't get much deserved attention and distribution. I am sure it will appear as gem or research film in both their filmographies. For us that did see it on its 1st theatrical release, I shall say we did enjoy it abundantly. Provocative and good acting.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Shortly after Tom Hanks was handed the Oscar for Best Actor at the 66th annual Academy Awards, the "Philadelphia" star launched into a hammy, but heartfelt speech that unavoidably, grows cornier and cornier, and less magnanimous with each passing year(wasn't a certain Laker supposed to die?), as the urgency which surrounded AIDS back in 1994, has leveled off considerably.

  • Summary: In the end I Love You Phillip Morris is an entertaining and lighthearted piece of filmmaking, about one man who constantly made ill-advised decisions for the ones he loved. The film is a tour-de-force of comedic hits mixed with star beaming performances.

  • Summary: Jim Carrey's best role and best movie since "Man On The Moon". I love movies that go for broke, and this one is brave enough to work without a safety net the entire running time. From the first shot to the last shot, it's captivates our attention with how alive it is. I think the screenplay is Oscar-worthy, but I think the performances are actually a little too ahead of their time for the Academy to care about.

  • Summary: "I Love You Phillip Morris" had a lot of potential if it hadnt been rushed constantly throughout, but Carreys charm and wit in his performance of the complicated character Stephen Russell can make up a lot of the films flaws.

  • Summary: A fine film not great. It's did'nt live up to how good I thought it would be but still fairly funny in parts I think the quote "Shawshank Redemption with skinnier trousers" is a good one it sums up the film quite well. Carrey and McGregor still include acting. Funny Film but quite easy to lose track of the story.
