I Love You, Phillip Morris

This movie was BAD!

First, you have Ewan McGregor as a blonde.  Next, there’s Jim Carrey trying to be serious.  Then you have the plot (I don’t care if it’s based on real events)!

This is a movie about a guy named Steven Russell from Virginia (Carrey) who leaves his wife, moves to Texas, and lives out if homosexuality.  He lives well above his means and gets arrested and convicted of insurance fraud.  While in prison he meets Phillip Morris (McGregor).  They fall in love and when Steven gets out of prison he pretends to be a lawyer in order to get Morris out early.  They move to Florida and begin their live together.  However, Steven continues living above his means and embezzles money.  But he gets caught and both men go back to prison (even though Morris had nothing to do with the crimes).  Steven tries (and succeeds for a short time) to escape but each time is caught and put back into prison.  Finally, he pretends to be infected with AIDS and fakes his own death just to try to get Morris out of prison.  He doesn’t succeed and is, instead, put back into prison with a life sentence.  He is still there today – in solitary confinement.

This movie can only be rented if you are 18 or older.  But I suggest renting ANYTHING else.  There was nothing good about this movie.
