I gotta say, it's really awesome to see a funny Jim Carrey movie. He plays Stephen Russell, who's true story was adapted by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the first-time directors of the film. Stephen is a cop in Georgia, married to a lovely wife (Leslie Mann) with a daughter when he has an experience that causes him to start living his life to the fullest. He comes out as a gay man and develops extravagant tastes to the point where he starts conning people to pay for it all. There are so many "bait and switch" moments in the movie that you're never quite sure when you'll be hit again. Stephen is flawed, but completely likeable. Even when he does terrible things, we forgive him, as we see his intentions weren't entirely selfish. Stephen showers affection on his new boyfriend, Phillip (Ewan MacGregor) and goes to great lengths to sustain their lifestyle. At one point he pays to have a guy beat up, just so Phillip can sleep through the night. Now that's love.

It reminds me of Catch Me If You Can, but sillier. It's a good movie. I quite enjoyed it. Opens in limited release in New York and Los Angeles on December 3, 2010.
