10/12/2011: I Love You Phillip Morris [2009]

So I stumbled upon this the other day, and seeing Jim Carrey was in it went ahead and watched the trailer. Let me tell you that was quite the tricky and enticing trailer. It captured most of the exciting parts and hinting at the very interesting premise of a gay con-artist. W

hile the movie turned out to be a lot more prison time than the trailer hinted, and being a quite in-depth love story, it was still however very entertaining. Based in fact on a true story, and not at all loosely. Steven Russell is in fact a gay con-artist in the U.S. who fell in love with Phillip Morris and proceeded


to escape prison several times and con Morris out as well.


The movie was a refreshing true story, and as always Jim Carrey was an amazing actor and probably portrays his character with a little more Jim Carrey persona thrown in than there really is, but that makes the movie better.
