Jim Carrey makes a Clint Eastwood impression in this film. Earlier in his career Carrey started in Eastwoods fifth Dirty Harry movie The Dead Pool. Carrey also did Eastwood impressions earlier in his stand up career. One such includes The Mask (1994) where he attacks a group of thieves at a nightclub with fake guns. See more »

If you want a serious laugh pain, watch this movie, and the things Bruce inflicts on his fellow newscaster. The deleted scenes are priceless. I don't know why they didn't include them in the original movie. It can't be because of time, since the movie is only 101 minutes long. Morgan Freeman is a brilliant actor, who has been overlooked for too long. Jim Carrey needs meds!
