  4. Let's see what is the Racial equivalent? Black-Face. Got it. Okay so we have two str8 men painting on Gay-face and picking up a Banjo/Loft/sports car and singin Mammy or something Gay-ish! See, there is no discrimination against Gay Americans. This is parody. Just like Black-face is.

  5. I saw a screener last year and it is charming, and, yes, extremely moving... Believe it from one who has actually seen it!

  9. Oh good, I was hoping for another movie where gay people are all prissy queens, criminals and... FUNNY!!!

    Fuck you, Ewan McGregor. I'm done defending your shitty acting.

  11. I'm with David E. Ewan looks really good. I wouldn't kick him out of my bed.

  12. I've been put off by Jim Carrey ever since he started killing children.

  13. I'm thankful to Netflix for getting me away from Hollywood schlock like this. It looks like any of the dozens of crap films I've seen on a plane.

  14. I saw this film. It's my job to see all available films at festivals and markets. It's horrible. And it is EXACTLY like black-face - Sargon you are right.

  15. Honestly, how did this movie get made? Who thought it would be a good idea? I can't imagine what sort of audience they possibly envisioned watching it.

  16. I saw this early last summer and, like Feral, thought it was terrific. My one qualm is that Jim Carrey occasionally lapses into far too broad of a characterization (you never forget he's Jim Carrey, whereas Ewan McGregor disappears into his part). Most of the people at the screening I saw were comparing it to Catch Me If You Can, but it reminded me a lot more of Raising Arizona in its silly and sweet tone.

  17. Do we really need this characterization when we are fighting for marriage equality? Seems Hollywood has a homophobic streak, still..

  18. Ewan McGregor looks adorable as a redhead. Despite whether this movie is terrible or not, it's nice that the main plot/focus of the movie isn't about them being gay... it's about the guy and his con-man ways and it affecting their relationship.

  19. I saw a preview screening the other night. It's like 'Catch Me If You Can' without any of the charm. As for the portrayal of gay men... it's over-the-top and stereotyped, but not offensive per se - I just expected more nuance from both actors.

    Overall, just a dull film.

  20. I saw the film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Loved it! So did the other 600 people in attendance judging by the applause and the evaluation at the end of the screening.

  21. The story of Phillip Morris was covered in a recent newspaper article here in the UK - sounds like an amazing life and the film could be worth seeing.
