As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett's teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John's side ever since - a friendship that's tested when Lori, John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.
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
At one scene in the motel, a smashed watermelon is visible by the bed with no explanation as to why or how it got there. This is because the scene involving the watermelon gag was cut, but the smashed watermelon is still in the shot. The gag was going to be that he was having sex with the watermelon. But shortly before its release, American Pie came out and it no longer seemed appropriate due to using the same joke. See more »
Near the end of the film, we see Irene and her ex-boss on a deteriorated wooden bridge. The gaps in the bridge's planking are spanned by two parallel boards. However, moments later when Charlie crosses the same bridge, the gaps are spanned only by single planks. See more »
Charlie, why didn't you take a vacation when Layla left?
Why... why would I? Wives leaves their husbands everyday in this country... It's no reason to short change the department... it's not like I had the flu!

I find it strange so many people disliked this movie. Just because a critic dislikes a movie, doesn't mean you have to dislike it too! I'm not suggesting it was the greatest comedy of all time, but it certainly achieved its purpose.
There were easily enough laughs throughout the movie to keep me entertained, and Jim Carrey was his usual talented self. Renee Zellweger played her part well, allowing Carrey to steal most of the thunder. I'm not Carrey's biggest fan when he's being interviewed, but his acting is always impressive and appropriate.
I would definitely like to see Carrey pursue a few more dramatic roles.
