DVD: I Love You Phillip Morris (15)

Click to follow

Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor star as lovers in John Requa's rather sombre comedy.

Carrey plays Steve, a fantasist who, after a car crash, suddenly realises he's gay and promptly leaves his job as a cop, dumps his god-fearing wife (Leslie Mann) and children and embarks on a flamboyant new life of men and crime. However, after one fraud-scheme too many, Steve ends up in the clink where he falls in love with gentle Phillip (McGregor, in his best turn since Young Adam, seven years ago). Steve promises (and fails) to make the perfect life for them both. Carrey's manic energy keeps this disjointed, moving and slightly odd romantic caper afloat.
