I Love You Phillip Morris by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, 2009 (R)

with Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor (Amelia, Haywire, The Men Who Stare At Goats, The Ghost Writer, Perfect Sense, Salmon Fishing In Yemen), Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Antoni Corone, Brennan Brown, Michael Mandel, Annie Golden

When upstanding Texas cop Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) realizes he's gay, he changes his entire life and pulls a series of bold con jobs that lands him in jail -- where he meets his one true love, cellmate Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). When Morris is transferred to another prison, lovesick Russell mounts a series of jailbreaks just to be with his beloved soul mate.

Craziest gay movie ever. What I cannot believe is that it is a true story. The trailer is great but the movie is pushed a little bit too much to the extreme. Sometimes, it is just no longer funny. I wonder how Ewan McGregor chose to appear in this movie, which is far away from his other movies. Jim Carrey is exuberant, very much in his own style, but it is painful. Anyway, not to recommend.
