Man, I Love Jim Carrey

I just can't get enough of this guy. The absurd facial expressions.....The quirky noises.....


and the physically demanding body contortions.....


How did he do that with his hand? I suspect he probably practises yoga.

How is it that this comic genius has never won an Oscar for his champagne comedy? What an oversight by the Academy.

Give me more Jim Carrey, I say. In fact, someone needs to invent a way to convert him into liquid form so that he can be injected directly into my veins in a concentrated form because viewing his plethora of hilarious films repeatedly just isn't enough.

It dawned on me long ago that there was an overwhelming need for more movies starring the rubbery-faced Jim Carrey. I had this epiphany midway through the 1990's. It came to me after seeing a preview for "Dumb & Dumber" during a screening of "The Mask" at a movie theatre which had an ad for the upcoming "Batman Forever" in their foyer.

He is simply a unique actor with the ability to display a full spectrum of emotions ranging from extremely goofy and neurotic to plain goofy and neurotic. Now is that versatility or what? When modern medicine becomes more advanced, the world's leading geneticists should then work on a way to clone Jim Carrey so that we can have more of his movies released in theatres simultaneously.

Better yet, they could create a movie where Jim Carrey stars in every role. Like that Michael Keaton film "Multiplicity," except that this one would be good. They could call it: "Lemony Snicket's Eternal Sunshine of the Dumb Liar Pet Detective Almighty & the Dumber Masked Cable Guy".

The plot would involve a series of unfortunate events relating to a fibbing, dumb Jim Carrey who has memory flashbacks of him trying to locate a lost rare bird with the help from God and assisted by his dumber cable guy split personality as they utilise the powers of a mystical mask.

It would be the best movie ever made in the history of comedy. Jim Carrey could promote it by appearing on Oprah and jumping on her couch. If that happened, the buzz and excitement generated would mean that box office records worldwide would surely be broken.

Right, I'll get my coat.....

Strangely, I just seem to prefer Jim Carrey in a drama these days than comedy since Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. I mean, Truman Show told me that he was a good dramatic actor, but man, Eternal Sunshine just brought things to another level.

Anything that came out after that, for me, just seemed WEAK. Like Truth With Dick and Jane and Series of Unfortunate Events.

I love Jim Carrey. Didn't enjoy Cable Guy, Bruce Almighty, Me Myself & Irene, Dumb & Dumber, but love the rest - Truman Show, The Majestic, Ace Ventura, The Mask, Enternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Lemony Snicket's, The Grinch, Liar Liar and then some...
