Seeing it has been a long time since I have watched a ‘proper’ Jim Carrey film and with Liar Liar being the only major one which I haven’t seen I decided to cross it off my list and enter the world of Carrey’s slapstick.

And what a world it is. Right from the opening scene Carrey is on true form performing beautifully with frantic speaking and multiple facial reactions leading to great jokes. Sure the story is lame (Carrey’s son makes a wish that his dad can’t lie for a day) but that doesn’t matter because this is film isn’t about where its going its about how it gets there.
