  1. Carrey is starting to sound far more intelligent than I had given him credit for...

  2. This movie was surprisingly good! Sweet, funny, and poignant...

  3. It's actually quite fun. Carrey is (you're not going to believe this) toned down a few notches to play this part. Steven is an outrageosu character, but he's also loveable. And Ewan MacGregor is adorableness itself.

  4. I actually didn't like it much at all. I thought the part about faking HIV was a bit disrespectful? Maybe it was just the mood I was in when watching it, but that doesn't seem terribly ok to use someone else's plight for his gain. However, I realise that was the true story and not just a writer making it up.

  5. I usually hate Jim Carrey, but I enjoyed this movie. I was surprised at the scorn heaped on it in today's paper, especially given that (according to the real Philip Morris) it's an accurate recounting of what happened.

    Unfortunately, the real Morris is no Ewan McGregor. But so few are...

  6. I saw the movie today in Los Angeles, and was surprised at the candid realness of the movie. Whether made up or not it is a movie that will trail the way for gay movies and comedy hereafter. Kudos to Carrey and Mcgregor for their intense and magnetic personification of two damaged individuals, trying to make it work despite the odds. Best movie, best comedy, best homo-flick to date.
