If you are a fan of the Farrelly brothers other movies, "King Pin", "There's Something About Mary", and "Dumb and Dumber", then you will really enjoy this movie. The Farrelly brothers and Jim Carrey are a match made in heaven. Their style suits Carrey's, as the movie is full of the physical comedy and sight gags that are Carrey's forte.
This is a pretty funny, though somewhat sophomoric, movie. It is also pretty filthy, at times, and definitely not for the movie goer of delicate sensibilities. There is something to offend just about everyone, so be prepared.
The basic premise of the movie is simple. A Rhode Island state trooper, Charley Baileygates, played by Jim Carrey, marries the prettiest and smartest girl in town. After she gives birth to triplets for whom Charley could not possibly be the father, for reasons obvious to the viewer, she later leaves him for another man, her soul mate and likely father of the triplets. She leaves Charley with the triplets, whom he raises as his own. The cuckolded Charley goes on to become the town joke and a seriously repressed man.
Eighteen years later, he snaps and begins to express his anger through an alternate personality and quintessential bad boy who calls himself Hank. Hank has attitude and plenty of it, and he lets everyone know that he is mad as hell and is not going to take it anymore. Charley's superiors send him to be evaluated, and he is given medication to control his psychiatric disorder.
Enter Irene, played by Rener Zellweger. Charley is asked to escort her to upstate New York where she is ostensibly wanted on a hit and run.

If you're buying the hilarious (and alarmingly rude) "Me, Myself And Irene" on BLU RAY - don't be tempted by the cheap prices of the American versions.

They're on 20th Century Fox and are all REGION A LOCKED - so they won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

Opt for the UK issue instead (Region B) - and you won't get any nasty playback problems...

This film is just as clever and outrageous as the Farrelly bros other stuff, but it didn't do very well at all critically or commercialy. I think I can tell you why: it's the voice over. The film is narrated by Rex Allen Jr., the son of the fellow who did all those "Charlie the Lonesome Cougar" Disney movies in the fiftes and sixties. He has one of those warm, down home, sincere and sweet american voices, it just oozes charm and gentle sensibility. And that's the problem. Most of the humour is quite edgy and bizarre, not at all politically correct, and normally people love that from these gentlemen. But when it's juxtaposed with this warm and sincere voice, the humour is no longer wild and fun, it just seems in bad taste. It's like watching the movie with your mother and priest, it sort of hampers (but not kills) the fun. Of course, if you're already far beyond sick and depraved, like the other reviewers on this page (and myself) you'll probably love the movie anyway. Just admit you have a diseased outlook on life and go ahead and buy the darn thing.

Excellent film, very funny. Typical Carrey. Surreal but isn't he normally? Loved this extraordinary tale of a man who has been taken advantage of all his life. His inner evil decides enough is enough and starts to show itself in hilarious situations. The bit with the cow is spectacular. I liked it!

I think the Brothers would do well to cast Jim Carrey in more of their movies. I found Dumb and Dumberto be absolutely hilarious and, once again, he has made "Me, Myself and Irene" a truly enjoyable piece of comedy. Without his fabulous physical performance, this film would be reduced to a string of sight gags and toilet humor which we have all seen before in dozens of other movies.

Narrated, in cheesy-fairy-tale style, by Rex Allen Jr., Me, Myself & Irene tells the story of Charlie Baileygates (Jim Carrey), an exceedingly nice Rhode Island State Trooper. He marries the love of his life only to have her run off with an African-American midget and leave their three racially mixed kids for Charlie to raise. Some sixteen years later, the kids have grown up to be geniuses and Charlie grows up with a problem. You see, as various misfortunes have befallen him over the years, he had adopted a grin-and-bear-it attitude that resulted in a lot of bottled-up anger. All that emotion is now releasing itself in the form of advanced delusionary schizophrenia with narcissistic rage, a.k.a. multiple personality disorder.

While Charlie is gentle and wary of any confrontation, his other personality Hank is exactly the opposite. He spouts insults all over the place and picks fights with everyone he encounters. Charlie's doctor gives him medication that is supposed to suppress Hank, but Charlie leaves it in his hotel room while escorting a pretty girl named Irene (Renee Zellweger) to upstate New York. He also falls in love with Irene and vows to protect her from crooks and corrupt cops who are after her (among them Chris Cooper, fresh off his American Beauty triumph). But not surprisingly, Hank keeps getting in the way.
