I Love You Phillip Morris is a difficult movie to sum up, it's dark but cheery, laugh filled but also sad, it's a bit of a mixed bag but doesn't always work.
The story is pretty simple, but what takes it to the next level is Jim Carrey. His acting is superb, in this movie he once again proves he can do comedy and drama, he proves to be a lot talent.
The bad part of the story is the dry spell nearer the beginning, its almost empty of comedy for the first half but in the later parts gets really funny,
The comedy can be quite dark, other times its very subtle and sometimes it's just outrageous. It's a mixed bag, a lot of the jokes might be missed the first time round so it might be better during a second viewing.
Overall: I didn't enjoy the first half, I found it a little boring and almost comedy free. As the story moved on it became funny and turned into a good comedy which mixed in some serious drama.
It's worth a watch but won't blow your socks off
