There's been so many serious Jim Carrey films where you think to yourself 'this is the dramatic performance of his career' and I Love You Phillip Morris is the newest. My god this guy performs! This is one of the most unusual and unbelievable true stories I've seen in the long time. It's about an everyday husband who becomes bored of his life as a cop. He's tired of his family and sick of living a lie. He's gay and doesn't want to hide it anymore. And so he ups and leaves for a new life. As he explains early in the film, being gay is expensive and so he becomes a con-man. A good one too. The story is similar to Spielberg's film Catch Me If You Can and much of it takes place in prison where he falls in love with another inmate played by Ewan McGregor. These two guys perform their asses off. Both roles are demanding and the movie balances the drama with comedy perfectly. This will not be everyone's cup of tea but for me it definitely was. I followed up the movie with a lot of curiosity and researched the real life events... and it sounds to me that I Love You Phillip Morris is more fact than fiction. Wow, what a story.
