Charlie is a Rhode Island state trooper with a multiple personalities. He is otherwise mild-mannered and non confrontational until somebody or something pushes him a little too far. That's when his maniacal alter-ego, Hank, takes over. Charlie is assigned on a routine mission to return alleged fugitive Irene back to upstate New York, but they wind up on the run from corrupt police officers. And their escape would be a lot simpler on everybody involved if Hank didn't keep stepping in at the most inopportune times.... Written by
In the scene where Hank is enraged by the softball player carelessly littering, all of the softball players' shirts say Cerrone. This is a reference to the writer who assisted the Farrelly brothers, Mike Cerrone. See more »
The Ford LTD 2-door belonging to the "Barber Shop Car Owner" is a 1979 to 1982 model when it's parked out on the street. However, it changes to a 1983-1987 model when Hank crashes it through the window; the grille changes completely. See more »
Great directing, great story line, great acting. Jim Carrey is brilliant in his role as both "Hank" and "Charlie." The problem with rating any comedy is that what's funny for one person is repulsive, boring or stupid to the next. You can't please everyone---but this one definitely comes close (hence, the above average overall rating at IMDB). Don't miss this one!
