Me, Myself & Irene

A clueless police officer raises three kids which his wife had with another man, resulting in mental problems for him. After a breakdown, he has to escort an endangered female witness upstate. When his medication runs out, he keeps alternating between two personas, with comic results. A comedy by the Farrelly brothers, with the usual dose of toilet humour.

Visitor Comments

Ian Douglas: I am not a fan of toilet humour, if you are you will disagree with my rating. As comedies go, I found it very weak, I laughed once at a verbal joke. The plotline is a reprise of ''The Mask'' or ''Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde'', with Carrey using the same voice he used as the cool ''Mask'' character. The use of the three black offspring, complete with ''M**th*rF*ck**r'' and ''bitch'' to the point of nausea made no sense and I found it insulting and demeaning to black Americans.

Jodi Rosenthal (20): No matter what the critics say, Carrey is a gifted comedian, skilled in physical theatre and facial movement. His new movie is not the best he has ever made, but there are some great laughs and clever inside jokes. His children are hysterical and they overturn the stereotype of bad language being an indication of stupidity. Renee Zellweger holds her own and she squishes her face so well. Carrey fans will love it, the rest will merely chuckle.

Guinevere Whelan (23): This a pure Farrelly. I got the references to their other films in this one. It's toilet humour - and very funny if you like toilet humour.

Ben Meyer (40): Jim Carry is the next best commedian to Jerry Lewis.

Jason Hervieux (21): This is the best funniest movie I have ever seen it is one of a kind and I hope one day they make a me myself and Irene 2.
