About Jim

( wikipedia | imdb | dmoz )
This page focuses on Jim's work in comedy films, but he has played some brilliant parts in more "serious" movies. For instance, I loved him in I Love You Phillip Morris, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Man on the Moon. Strangely, Canada seems to have a relatively high output of actors who become big names in American comedy, and Jim Carrey (now also a US citizen) is one of them. Go Canada!

Jim Carrey is said to have been born on Wednesday 17 January 1962, which would make him 55 years, 10 months and 7 days old (if this date is accurate and he is alive today).

Jim Carrey was credited as actor in the following film.
At the time, he would have been about 41 years old.
Bruce Almighty DVDBruce Almighty
      2003 | USA | Laughs: 7.0 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 6.7
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

Bruce, a man who complains that God is persecuting him, finally meets God, who gives him the job of being God to see if he can do it better. After playing with his super powers, Bruce, who is only given a small section of Buffalo (New York) to start with, finds out that the job is not as easy as it sounds. This movie makes me chuckle a lot. The one scene that made me laugh out loud actually features Steve Carell in the lead, but Jim Carrey does a great job. For my taste, the ending scenes are a tad on the exalted side, but given the theme it could have been a lot worse. (Last viewed: Feb 2004 September 2012)

Liar Liar DVDLiar Liar
      1997 | USA | Laughs: 6.6 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.8
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

After his five-year-old boy makes a wish that his dad wouldn't tell a lie for a day, an aggressive lawyer is unable to utter a single lie. That's a perfect source of comic situation for Jim Carrey—until then, the movie started rather slow. I'm not so fond of Jim Carrey's facial contortions, but I love that he makes me laugh anyway.

At the time, he would have been about 38 years old.
Me, Myself And Irene DVDMe, Myself And Irene
      2000 | USA | Laughs: 6.0 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.6
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A State trooper who has let others walk all over him for too many years acquires a split personality disorder. His other self is rather rough, which is handy when time comes to rescue a damsel in distress. Even funnier than Jim Carrey's decent performance is the dynamics between his three black kids. There's lots to like in this movie, though it's a little too unpolished to embrace whole-heartedly. (Last viewed: October 2012)

I used not to be able to stand Jim Carey's facial contortions. Since then, I've recognized the man's genius, and I've gotten to a place where I can enjoy watching him and not ignore the faces, which still do nothing for me. I waited a long time to watch this movie because I assumed that it was for children, but I was wrong. In fact, there are several adult scenes in there. Nice photography (a Miami art deco look throughout), a good smile throughout and several good laughs. (Last viewed: August 2009)

Dumb and Dumber DVDDumb and Dumber
      1994 | USA | Laughs: 5.9 (Watch Once) | imdb: 7.3
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

After losing their jobs, two buddies travel to Aspen to return a briefcase which, unbeknownst to them, contains the ransom money for a beautiful woman's husband. A bit slow in the beginning, but the second half, after the duo arrives in Aspen, is very funny. In this movie, Jim Carey doesn't make faces. (Last viewed: August 2009)

Dumb and Dumber To posterDumb and Dumber To
      2014 | USA | Laughs: 4.0 (Don't Bother) | imdb: 5.7
      wikipedia | who was involved?

The first half-hour of this sequel (twenty years later) to the original Dumb and Dumber is barely watchable. I persevered because I vaguely remembered that the original also started weakly. This time, our couple of likeable losers embark on a mission to track down a long-lost daughter in the hope she will donate a kidney. The movie does improve slightly after a while, but it does feature the worst performance by Jim Carrey I have ever seen. Don't waste your time: this "comedy" will make you sad.

      1996 | USA | Laughs: 1.3 (Just Awful) | imdb: 6.1
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A lonely cable guy (Jim Carrey) decides he wants to become one of his customers' best friends. Starts out silly (with some good laughs), ends up psycho. I wanted to watch a comedy, mama, not a stalker movie! Only watch if you're ready to zap. (Last viewed: June 2010)
