    It's one crazy love story, but Carrey and McGregor make it work by making us buy the romance as the real thing. There's something about these Marys that pulls you in. show more

    A tonally confused, fitfully entertaining film about a pathologically two-faced man. show more

    Barrels around in manic fashion much like Carrey does in most of his movies. He's meant to be a fool for love, but mostly he's just bonkers. show more

    Surprisingly entertaining. Some very good moments. NOT recommended for homophobes, who just won\'t get it anyway!

    The worst movie I have ever seen. It is seriously border line homosexual porn , but with less of a plot. I can not believe people are actually saying they enjoyed this movie. If you like Jim Carrey DO ********* this movie , because you will not like him anymore. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE MOVIE< DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!
