1 out of 10 Catch me if you Brokeback with Dick and Jane
conor from Meath, 08 Nov 2011
This could have been a much better film but seemed to swing between comedy and drama too much. Carrey and McGregor were mis-cast for this reason. Carrey being very good during the comedy bits but lost during the drama. McGregor being the opposite. Its like a mash-up between Brokeback Mountain, Catch me if you Can and Fun with Dick and Jane. Each of which is a very good film but not so good when combined. Could have cut out alot and produced a good fast paced film. What was director trying to achieve? Who knows.

3 out of 10 Can the truth be this far fetched?
Eamon from Meath, 21 Sep 2010
It's only in the last few scenes that you realise the enormity of this true story. Up until then it is a light hearted comedy where no-one really gets hurt and all of the characters have good hearts and the best of intentions. But in the end I was left feeling a bit uneasy at the lengths that the main character went to and the depth of his disturbed nature. Reading the text at the end of the film gives you an idea of just how serious this story is, and leaves you questioning if you should have b

4 out of 10 144 years???
Brock from Limerick, 02 Dec 2010
A bit surprised when this came along, was thinking it might be about the Tobacco giant.... Instead, we see Jim Carey and Ewan MacGregor fairly convincing in roles that we perhaps not expect to see them in. An engaging film that ticks along nicely. Was left fairly dumbstruck at the end though when we learn that the principle character is currently just 7 years into a 144yr sentence and 23hr hour a day lockdown for what is essentially fraud. A lot of bankers in today's climate can count themselves

5 out of 10 The chisel is in the Post!!
Caroline from Dublin, 20 Sep 2010
We are in a recession however this guy Philip Morris is any shareholder's dream financial Manager. I am shocked companies havent sprung him out of Jail to employ him. I am currently planning his escape to help me with my debts. Insprired by The Shawshank Redemption. Great Film

4.5 out of 10 Outstanding
Joanne from Cork, 06 Dec 2010
I LOVED this film. It's an incredible true story about love, stubborness and sheer balls, and it made me laugh and cry at the same time. Steven Russell, the man who's story the film is based on, is an absolute legend. RENT IT!!!! You will not be disappointed.

What's it about....
Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) leads a seemingly average life – an organ player in the local church, happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann), and a member of the local police force. That is until he has a severe car accident that leads him to the ultimate epiphany: he‘s gay and he‘s going to live life to the fullest – even if he has to break the law to do it. Taking on an extravagant lifestyle, Steven turns to cons and fraud to make ends meet and is eventually sent to the State...
