There is absolutely no one else who could've pulled this off but Jim Carrey. It's one of those movies that they tell you will make you laugh and cry. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Bad Santa) wrote this dramedy about a married cop who decides to throw caution to the wind and admit he's gay once the biological mom he was searching for rejects him. Eager to have everything he's always been deprived of, he uses his cop skills to scam people. Eventually he goes to prison where he falls in love with a man named Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). His affections for him are so strong that when he's transferred to another prison, he spends the rest of the film comically trying to get back to him.
