An outrageous comedy from the Farrelly Brothers, the film centers around a mild-mannered Rhode Island cop (Carrey) with split-personality disorder who escorts a woman (Zellweger) back to her home town. The cop and his hyper-aggressive alter-ego both fall in love with the confused lady, and he wages war - with himself - for her affections.

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.Read more ›
Mild-mannered police officer Charlie Baileygates (Jim Carrey) is given the job of taking the beautiful Irene P. White (Renee Zellweger) upstate to face false criminal charges. Trouble is, Charlie suffers from Split Personality Disorder and wherever he goes, so does his foul-mouthed, super-aggressive alter-ego Hank. When an attempt is made on Irene's life, she, Charlie and Hank are forced to go on the run, with Charlie and Hank fighting over her affections and the true criminals, the Rhode Island state troopers, and Charlie's three black sons all following in hot pursuit. Madcap comedy from the makers of 'There's Something About Mary' and 'Kingpin'.
If you want a film to have you laughing all way through watch this well worth it
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...
As I say Carey once again steals the show and whether you love him or loathe him, I would challenge anyone to watch the sequence when he beats himself up, including the stunt where he throws himself out of the car, and not be impressed by his fantastic mime abilities and sheer comic genius.
The rest of the comic moments are provided by the Farrelly brothers' typical fare of gross over the top pranks and these seem to hit the mark although even by their outrageous standards some of the jokes seemed really near to edge for me!
I loved the interplay of Carey's three "sons" and the addition of "Whitey" the albino worked for me also.
As I say the actual story is really secondary to the film's aims and this is the only part worthy of criticism. The "touching" scenes between Carey and Rene Zellweger were tedious and unconvincing, but I guess that wasn't the point of the film anyway.
I would normally score this film three stars, but I'll give it one extra for Carey's fine performance.
"OK I'm going to go with this"
A really great film.
