The movie wants us to overlook its implausibility by insisting that it's all true. We believe it, we just don't care.

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

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.

Russell was a fascinating character and a real puzzle box; but the filmmakers have turned his life into a broad farce with one wocka-wocka gag after another.

[The] elaborate cons may be fascinating, daring stuff, but the heart of the picture is the romantic relationship, which is squeezed out to the edges.

Yes, some familiar Carrey tactics are on display, but the star's performance has real heart - it's easily the best thing he has done since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Neither the filmmakers nor actor Carrey appear to be able to make any distinction between when Steve is full of baloney and when he's sincere.

... if you want to enjoy a comedy that handles a traditional little love story with tremendous cheek, do not miss I Love You Phillip Morris. [Full review in Spanish]

[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 increble historia real, esta comedia de Jim Carrey no es para nada la tpica comedia de Jim Carrey, aunque haga uso de sus habituales recursos histrinicos. Una comedia romntica absurda, irreverente y gay.

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

A remarkably strong debut...
