I Love You Phillip Morris: DVD Review

I Love You Phillip Morris: DVD Review

I Love You Phillip Morris
Rating: R16
Released by Roadshow

Jim Carrey stars as flamboyant conman Steven Russell in this film which is outrageous and fun at the same time.

Adopted at birth,Russell feels he's living a lie and suddenly decides everything must change-so he starts committing frauds left right and centre to pay for his life as a gay man and enjoy the extravagances.

But as ever, the law catches up with him and banged up, Russell finds Ewan McGregor's sweetly touching Phillip Morris and the two fall in love.

However, Russell's determined to get out of jail and does everything in his power to ensure Morris and he have a life together-but it doesn't run smoothly.

Light, frothy, funny and outrageous in equal measures,ILYPM is a hilarious and insanely fun ride with scenes which will shock and surprise you.

Carrey is very good as Russell but it's McGregor who's the best thing in this with his performance just endearing on many levels. OTT it may be, but it's a great piece of popcorn entertainment.
