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 Charlie first loads up Irene on the back of his motorcycle and takes off, the first highway shot bounces and the front wheel of the motorcycle can be seen clearly mot even turning, indicating the bike is on a trailer. The vast majority of cycle shots make the bike look this same way, like its on a trailer. See more »

Hank. I really, really appreciate your help. But is there any way that maybe we could get Charlie back out here for a little huddle?
No problem. And while you're at it, why don't you go climb that pole over there and take a big steamy piss on the power lines? Look, I'm not here to twist your niblets. I'm here to save your life. But if I'm going to do that, I'll need total uninanonynymity.

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!
