About I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS:
Told with an uncanny sense of humor and a lot of heart, I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS is an oddball tale of what can happen when the legal system, a daredevil spirit and undying love collide. Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are madly in love in this deliriously daring and hilariously entertaining story of a con man continually breaking out of jail to be with his man.
Jim Carrey plays Steven Russell, a married police officer who decides to come out after a near-death experience. He moves to Miami, embraces an extravagant lifestyle, and eventually starts pulling cons to pay for it all. But when he meets his soul mate Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor) in jail, Steven's devotion leads him to repeatedly find himself in trouble with the law and on the lam - all in the name of love.
Unlike anything else you will see this year, the film is Based on a true story. From the writers of the deliciously subversive "Bad Santa."
