Weird but interesting
12 April 2005 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

From the director of 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' and its star Jim Carrey we get 'Pecan Pie'. A short film that takes about a minute and a half showing Jim Carrey singing Elvis Presley's "Pecan Pie" while driving in his car. His car is actually a bed, the kind that is quite popular with small children, with real wheels and an engine attached to it. With his bed-car he enters a gas station where two pretty well-known comedians help him... but not the way you really expect.

This weird little film that could easily be one of the dream sequences from 'Eternal Sunshine' is pretty interesting to watch though. Despite a lot of others I do not think the film really meant anything, I just liked the idea since I have seen a lot of car-beds but never a bed-car. Just fun with Carrey.
