This movie is deliriously original and brilliant, It seems like a gay romantic comedy but it?s so much more than that; it?s an extraordinary story about devotion, compassion and unconditional love that leaves you with such a great feeling. It also has a good dose of adventure and it?s outrageously funny.
The narrative is a little bit complicated, at moments you don?t know if you should cry or laugh because there?s a dark comedy presented that deals with very serious issues like; divorce, incarceration, criminal activities and HIV-Aids.
Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are superb in this movie; they play lovers in and out of jail. They fight, they make up, and then they kiss, just like any other couple. There are some particular tender moments in the movie when you can actually feel how much they love each other. They are definitely corny love birds!
I recommend you watch it, you?ll enjoy it. It?s compelling, exciting, hilarious and absolutely entertaining.
Here is the synopsis you can find at the movie website:
is the improbable but true story of a spectacularly charismatic conman?s journey from small-town businessman to flamboyant white-collar criminal, who repeatedly finds himself in trouble with the law and on the lam, brilliantly escaping from the Texas prison system on four separate occasions ? all in the name of love.
Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) leads a seemingly average life ? an organ player in the local church, happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann), and a member of the local police force. That is until he has a severe car accident that leads him to the ultimate epiphany: he?s gay and he?s going to live life to the fullest ? even if he has to break the law to do it. Taking on an extravagant lifestyle, Steven turns to cons and fraud to make ends meet and is eventually sent to the State Penitentiary where he meets the love of his life, a sensitive, soft-spoken man named Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor).
His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts him to attempt (and often succeed at) one impossible con after another. Told with an uncanny sense of humor and a lot of heart, ?I Love You Phillip Morris? is an oddball tale of what can happen when the legal system, a daredevil spirit and undying love collide.
