  • Critic Reviews
    "Carrey's chameleonlike gyrations and falsifications are deliciously funny. His comedic versatility and impersonations are amazing, but it's in his character's darkest recesses that he's truly powerful."
    Hollywood Reporter

    3 stars out of 5 -- "When Carrey is onscreen, everything about the giddy, conflicted man he's been asked to embody is either amusing, sympathetic or true."
    Box Office

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Carrey channels his limitless energy into Russell's kaleidoscopic life..."
    Total Film

    "[The filmmakers have] provided Jim Carrey with his freshest, funniest role since THE CABLE GUY....I LOVE YOU, PHILLIP MORRIS sharpens Ficarra and Requa's Sturges-esque satirical vision of the American Dream."
    Film Comment

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a wonderful mix of old-school Carrey outrageousness with a genuinely touching -- and very modern -- love story."
    Empire

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[Carrey] gives his best performance since ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND."
    Uncut

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[It's] outrageously funny. Jim Carrey swans around making nutso magic....It's one crazy love story, but Carrey and McGregor make it work by making us buy the romance as the real thing."
    Rolling Stone

    "[With] Jim Carrey in a boundary-busting performance of spectacular commitment and delicacy....[I]t sustains a tone of compassionate hilarity in which oversize romantic gestures coexist with gigantic scams." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "This is CATCH ME IF YOU CAN with two middle fingers raised in the air....[The film] marvels at the impulsive, diabolical brilliance of Steven Jay Russell, a.k.a. 'King Con,' a multi-talented con artist who frustrated and embarrassed detectives and jailers for years." -- Grade: B+
    A.V. Club

    "With his manic glare, ferociously eager smile, hyperkinetic body language and talent for instant self-transformation, Mr. Carrey has rarely been more charismatic on the screen."
    New York Times

    "There's plenty of sweetness at the core of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa's bold, bleak little comedy I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS..."
    Movieline

    "There's never been a movie like this one....Much of it is funny or affecting in surprising ways..."
    Wall Street Journal

    4 stars out of 4 -- "Carrey makes the role seem effortless; he deceives as spontaneously as others breathe....McGregor rises to the occasion like a dazzled ingenue."
    Chicago Sun-Times
