This has got to be one of the funniest romantic comedies I've ever seen. And it's quite disturbing that, it is, with a few dramatic changes, a true story. I do not recommend extensively reading about Steven Jay Russell or Phillip Morris before watching this film. I happened to read the short article in Esquire. But other than that, nothing.
As you can see, Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey play gay men who are in love. The story is about the crazy life of Steven Russell (played by Jim Carrey) and what kind of madness threads the life of a police officer who is married with child to gay con man, escape-artist felon. If you ever enjoyed Jerry Springer or Judge Judy and you like gay romantic comedies, this is the movie to watch.
