Movie Info

Six years after Dumb and Dumber, Jim Carrey reunited with Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly for this anarchic comedy with a hint of romance. Charlie (Carrey) is a good-natured Rhode Island state trooper who likes helping people. But years of internalizing his frustrations about his work and his family have caused Charlie to develop an alter ego: Hank, an abusive, violent, sexually compulsive police officer. Charlie can keep Hank at bay with medication, but just barely. When Irene (Renee

Somewhat less than the sum of its parts, Me, Myself & Irene is overlong and choppy.

The Farrellys strike again; avoid this awful film.

While the film does deliver enough laughs to merit a recommendation, it is a letdown given the caliber of the comic minds involved.

Able-minded kids of all ages know that drooling at the dinner table can be an act of defiance.

August 21, 2009 Full Review Source: City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

Consistently filthy and funny, with the Farrellys' usual attention to disability that will surely be misread as insensitivity to disability.

March 11, 2008 Full Review Source:

Involves a knock-down, drag-out fight between the two personalities. It's like watching Jerry Lewis and Buster Keaton duke it out while inhabiting the same body.

June 25, 2004 Full Review Source: Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

[Zellweger] shares nearly all her scenes with Carrey and doesn't get gobbled up by him. She's a lovely comic foil, a straight man that can take any number of hits.

Me, Myself & Irene suffers its own identity crisis, as it lacks purpose, restraint and overall self-respect.

You might need an alter ego to dig this one.

Although the actress has brought a natural humor to her appealing dramatic roles, Zellweger is a bit grating here as she tries too overtly to force the laughs.

The cinematic equivalent of a painful paper cut.

It's a great showcase of flexibility and split-second role-shifting, but none of it is terribly funny.

Audience Reviews for Me, Myself & Irene

Ace Ventura, The Mask, Dumb and Dumber. All the comedies with Jim pre to Me, Myself and Irene, were all masterpieces. This was unexpectedly crude and certainly not the best but it was also Jim's best physical performance in terms of his reputation as being "the man of a thousand faces".

Finally, after 3 attempts at watching this film I made it to the end. It wasn't worth it, in fact I feel angry at about the time I wasted. It's not in my top 10 worst films of all time but it's definitely in the teens. Very much not my kind of film.

Me, Myself & Irene is one of the finest films directed by the Farrelly Brothers. For me, this is Jim Carrey's last funny film. After this film he started going off the deep end, and made a couple of really bad films. But this is a fine Swan song to a good comedic actor. The humour in this film sharp, witty and crude. But thats what makes it so funny. Renee Zellwegger gives her only good performance of her career, as she's quite the bad actress. However in this film, this is one of the best comedies that the Farrelly Brothers have made. The humour in Me, Myself & Irene is very low brow as you'd expect from the Farrelly's. This is one of their best films. Jim Carrey is very funny in this film, and it sucks that he hasn't made anything watchable since this film. The cast do a good job here. Theres plenty of scenes that are memorable, especially every scene involving Jim Carrey's sons. The film is very well done, with non stop laughs. The humour may not appeal to everyone, but for fans of most of the Farrely Brothers films, you won't be disappointed, I personally preferred this film over There's Something About Mary. Some of the cast are surprising, I did not expect to see Richard Jenkins here and Chris Cooper, both have played in excellent films, but it's great to see them doing something different. Me,Myself & Irene is one of my favorite comedies and it definitely brings on big laughs, a great comedy.
