Jim Carrey stars in the “outrageously funny” (Rolling Stone) true story of a spectacularly charismatic con man’s journey from small-town businessman to flamboyant white-collar criminal, who repeatedly finds himself in trouble with the law and on the lam – all in the name of love. Costarring Ewan McGregor, I Love You Phillip Morris is an unbelievably true comedy that’s being called “the best performance of Carrey’s career” (Village Voice). Jim Carrey likes to keep his career surprising–and few choices could be more unexpected than this unrepentantly gay romantic comedy. Based on a true story, I Love You, Phillip Morris follows Steven Russell (Carrey) from his beginnings as a cop who abuses his position to learn his birth mother's identity to a spectacular con man who embezzles enormous sums of money from a food-service corporation. During one of his bouts of prison, Russell meets Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor, Moulin Rouge!), a soft-spoken fellow prisoner who becomes the love of Russell's life–but who can't take Russell's free-wheeling, anything to break free and live life to the criminal fullest approach. Carrey seems miscast; his humor tends toward confrontation, and he lacks the seductive charm that Russell's con games would seem to need (McGregor, who is charm embodied, might have been a better choice). But some of Russell's prison escapes are truly flabbergasting and it's refreshing to see a movie with gay characters that isn't about them wrestling with their sexual identities. The flow of the story feels much like a Coen Bros. movie (Fargo or Raising Arizona) with its vivid, quirky characters and unpredictable plot. Also featuring Leslie Mann (Knocked Up) and Rodrigo Santoro (300). –Bret Fetzer
