[E]asily one of the best comedies of the last several years.

Jim Carrey succeeds but the film is too mean-spirited and its supporting players too one-dimensional to make this story worthwhile.

Even when the movie's doing something stupid, you just bemusedly shake your head and dive right back in, forgiving everything, even if you don't know why. Isn't that what love's all about?

Despite its title, it has nothing to do with cigarettes. But its star, as he once famously said on screen, is absolutely "smokin'."

...it's the film's fearless go-for broke style which makes I Love You Phillip Morris such a success.

Jim Carrey brings dynamo force to the story of a brilliant con man and the guy he loved

ILYPM is quite good and it's a shame that this film was shunted around the backburners for so long.

Above all, it is the wonderful performances of Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor as a couple of misfits for whom love is everything, that stay with us

I'm describing I Love You Phillip Morris as an inferior version of Catch Me If You Can. It's trying to tell a similar story in a similar vein but it just doesn't work.

Inspirada en una increíble historia real, esta comedia de Jim Carrey no es para nada la típica comedia de Jim Carrey, aunque haga uso de sus habituales recursos histriónicos. Una comedia romántica absurda, irreverente y gay.

But truth be told, no film has conveyed true love quite as convincingly in a very long time.

You have to hand it to Jim Carrey. He could take the easy paycheck time after time in bland movie after bland movie, but he keeps on running down these weird roads and that's where he winds up doing his best work.

Leaving aside the extent in which the premise of I Love You Phillip Morris is essentially very sad and serious, this is overall an extremely funny and at times very sweet romantic comedy.

This is the most interesting role Carrey has had in a long while.

It's a joy to see Carrey used in a way that revels in his schizophrenic nature while also trying to make some authentic emotional sense of it as well.

Jim Carrey is the narrator... transforming what could have been a cliched con man comedy, generic Jim Carrey-character comedy or run-of-the-mill gay coming-out comedy into something smarter, sweeter and downright giddy.

Carrey reminds us here... that he can be a genuinely passionate actor able to skillfully combine comedy with pathos when he is removed from the Hollywood machine, which strives to turn him into a cartoon...

I like the outre screwball flavor of the piece; it feels a little like Steven Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can crossed with one of John Waters' gently transgressive cult movies.
