I Love You Philip Morris

Carey was digusted the food in prison didn't live up to the macrobert cafe bar...

Many critics who watch I Love You Philip Morris argue that this is Jim Carey’s finest performance since ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’. While there are many who debate the film’s believability of his screwball relationship with Ewan McGregor. However, what we can guarantee is that you will be enamoured by this flamboyant portrayal of a real life con man repressed by family life.

Steven Russel (Carey) suddenly recognises his homosexuality and embarks on a new life. When this life proves too costly, he then winds up in prison; meeting and falling in love with cellmate, Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). When Morris is released from prison, his new love embarks on a series of mad escape attempts to ensure they are reunited.

Carey never manages to quite escape from his usual tricks of over gesticulating in films. Nevertheless even as a con, he is the anti hero of the story, while McGregor compliments this funny and anarchic love affair. Even though more time and depth could have been spent on the characters, seeing as it ‘really happened’, the film is witty and a delight to watch.

I Love You Philip Morris is at the macrobert Wednesday 21st – Thursday 22nd July. For more information phone our box office on 01786 466666.
