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
When Peter Farrelly chose the group, 'Hootie & The Blowfish' to re-record the Orpheus classic "Can't Find The Time", the sheet music that was provided by the song's publisher contained errors in the lyrics. Hootie recorded the song mistakes and all - and it was not until the band invited the songwriter on stage during a show that they learned they had been singing the wrong lyrics. See more »
The scene at 49 mins where the three sons are talking to the police near the tents, the muscular son is seen to wear a grey, tight fitting vest with black trim. It cuts to a two shot and he is wearing a grey loose fitting vest with no trim. Then back to the wide shot and is wearing the tight grey vest with black trim again. See more »
Jim Carrey and the Farrely doing what they do best.
There is probably no other movie coming out this summer that will produce more from the gut laughs than Me, Myself & Irene. Sure it's crude, sure it's vulgar and juvenile at times, but sometimes we just have to take ourselves back to when we were younger and used to laugh at things that we would otherwise find rather disgusting. The main treat is to watch Carrey transform from the sweet natured Charlie to the vulgar, Dirty Harry sounding Hank. Hank does things that not many people would even dream of, and it's a kick to see him get away with some of them. Equally funny are Charlie's three sons, who are highly intelligent, love their dad and use a certain phrase to great effect. Some may find this movie offensive and occasionally funny at times, but I found it enjoyable from beginning to end. A good way to blow off steam from a bad day.
