The comedy film about real-life con man Steven Jay Russell (played by Jim Carey) and his prison crush on fellow inmate Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor) opens on Christmas Day at Malco's Studio on the Square. Here's what Flyer film editor Chris Herrington had to say about the show:
Arriving just shy of two years since debuting at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, I Love You Phillip Morris is a broad, daring farce that marks the directing debut of Bad Santa screenwriting team Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who bring that film’s principled disregard for good taste to this amazing true story of unrepentant con man Steven Jay Russell.Jim Carrey, in his strongest performance in years, plays Steven, who is a married police officer and church organist in Virginia when we first meet him.
