Audience Reviews for Rubberface
This short but edgy comedic drama draws on raw emotions of the young and the thoughtful who yearn for something deeper from the everyday mundane savagry of life and gives the deep thinking life-meaning seekers a sense of hope and refuge in a nonsensical world.
Initially released as "Introducing Janet" this less than an hour long movie was apparently made for Canadian TV, but it came off to me as a video about self esteem for schools or something. This film would've most likely disappeared off the face of the Earth if it was not for one of the costars...Jim Carrey. When he hit it big in the 90s, the film was retitled "Rubberface" and marketed as a Jim Carrey comedy like Ace Ventura or the Mask. Really he is the supporting character, but there was hopes of this making a little extra money off his name. Mostly it is a forgettable movie about a depressed girl who is not nearly as unattractive or fat as people imply that she is throughout.
I was surprised by the short length of this TV movie, but it was fun to see such a young Jim Carrey, he was pretty funny for his first role in a movie, and he stands out over the rest of the unknown cast. The rest of the movie is really cliche. Overall, it's okay, though.
