Jun 5 2007Jim Carrey Playing Gay Conman

Jim Carrey is set to star in I Love You Phillip Morris, a comedy written by the duo that brought us Bad Santa. Described as Catch Me if You Can meets Brokeback Mountain in the hopes of making it sound half as interesting as either, Morris sees Carrey as a conman who falls madly in love with his prison cellmate, and then must escape several times to follow his released lover.

I'm having a hard time with the Brokeback Mountain comparison. I mean, sure, I'll buy gay cowboys, but gay prisoners? Come on, does that really happen?

First. But not to say no one cares.

Still, sorry Jim Carrey, but no one cares.

Oh, so it's not about the cigarette manufacturer. Well whatever, Bad Santa was entertaining and Jim Carrey's is funny in most of his movies.
