Comedy, Drama

This comedy-drama is based on real-life con man Steven Russell (Jim Carrey), a churchgoing, Virginia Beach cop who – after a near-fatal car crash – leaves his wife and moves to Miami in order to live life as his true self, a gay man. The expensive lifestyle he adopts, however, soon lands him in the penitentiary, where is meets Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor), an inmate with a Southern accent and a courtly disposition. The two arrange to become cellmates and soon fall in love, an arrangement that goes awry once Phillip is released from prison. However, screenwriters and debut directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa—who penned the repugnant, mystifyingly overvalued Bad Santa—too frequently lean on homosexuality as a comic crutch, a device that belies the film's purportedly progressive aim.

It's good that somebody loves Phillip Morris

Phillip Morris generally succeeds as a satirical farce of middle-class mores; the explicit sex scenes nearly take care of that by themselves. »
