I have had a hankering to watch a Jim Carrey film film recently, so I chose this one.
The last time I watched this was back in 2011, and I had seen it at least once before that, so I remembered most of the story and jokes. Still, I found it to be quite enjoyable again.
Jim Carrey was the highlight of course, but Rhys Darby was great in his role, basically playing his character from Flight of the Conchords again. Zooey Deschanel was also tops.
The story was a bit silly, and quite standard really, but Jim made it fun to watch, although he has been funnier in other films.
He seems to have stepped away from comedic roles, and films in general. I see on Wikipedia that he will be starring in a new TV series next year called “Kidding”, which is described as a “dramedy”, he is also one of the executive producers.
Not essential, but it is harmless fun.
