I Love You Phillip Morris –
Plot – Steven Russell is happily married to Debbie, and a member of the local police force when a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment of his life. Steven becomes open about his homosexuality and decides to live life to the fullest – even if it means breaking the law. Steven’s new, extravagant lifestyle involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, soft-spoken Phillip Morris. His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts Steven to attempt and often succeed at one impossible con after another. Written by The Film Catalogue
Scott’s Review- I went into I Love You Phillip Morris thinking it was a movie about one man’s love of chain smoking. What I got was Catch Me If You Can mixed with Brokeback Mountain. There are some scenes in this film that actually left me shocked. Go into it with an open mind and expect the unexpected. I’m recommending based on Jim Carrey’s absolutely crazy performance.
