Explosively Preposterous Comedy!
on 9 May 2016
Jim Carrey - sometimes spectacularly brilliant, sometimes, erm, I wish I hadn't see that..! However, I believe this movie ties with The Mask as the perfect vehicle for his talents.
Not only is Carrey utterly hilarious, incredibly quick, and just plain crazy in this movie, but he is also surrounded by an excellent cast, and all are expertly directed. In fact, everything is just perfect - the camera angles are spot on, the editing is a masterpiece in timing, the script is inspired, and the soundtrack supports it all excellently.
...but enough of the analysis! This movie is a non-stop hoot, yet it is also touching and tender, and even a little philosophical - but ultimately, I watch it again and again to experience Carrey's explosively preposterous comedy - I just have to think of him and it brightens up even the most trying day!
It's a must-see - you'll never forget it, and always grin at recalling it!
