Dude this movie was freaking awesome. I'm disappointed I hesitated to see this flick because it went far beyond likeable I love it! Hilarious clever fresh and interesting. I found myself on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what would happen next.
Like "Catch Me If You Can" but if that movie had a lot more blow job jokes, which frankly, it was lacking. Still, this is a much more relatable film than Catch Me because the motivations are more legitimate instead of just "I'm a sad teenager with no money" and that makes me actually sympathize with the people involved. It also reminds me of the blowjob sketch from Mr. Show, which is always good.
Es completamente adorable, una historia emotiva que no cae en lo melodramático y se reserva de cierta manera una entidad personal que cualquiera puede presenciar, es amorosa y cariñosa, pero no empalaga al espectador, es una buena película para deleitarse un viernes.
An absolutely amazing movie. I'm shocked at how much I enjoyed this. The twists and turns in the story are fantastic and impossible to detect. Jim Carrey gives one of the best performances of his career (its great to see him in a film that isn't absolute crap these days) and Ewan McGregor's fantastic as well! Also, the surprising thing about it was how emotional it gets. Among the best comedies of the last decade.
One of those hidden little gems that sometimes just lies between the main stream and the independant and gets lost. Carrey and McGregor have such a natural chemistry that one completely buys into the relationship. Would seem far fetched if it wasn't mostly true. North American distributors again showed their inherent homophobia in not giving this a proper release. Mismarketing killed the limited release it did have.
Suffering from a complete identity crisis this attempt at documenting the life of con man Steven Russell does nothing much other than highlight what a complete narcissist he is. Perhaps that's the point of the film, however, no real substance is developed to explain him or his life. Carrey gives an uncomfortable turn, nailing the contradiction that is Russell, and he's nicely if a bit wetly supported by McGregor.
The star here is Ewan McGregor, not Jim Carrey, and the movie gets an extra point just for his acting. Apart from that, it's has nothing outstanding, it is not a bad movie: it is nice, with nice moments..but that's is just it: it is a "nice"movie.
