My 327th Review: An important film that shows the world has changed - entertaining too
I love You Philip Morris is an exceptional film, not because of the script, acting, or filming all of which are above average but simply because it seriously tries to take a homosexual relationship and show it as a heterosexual one and does so without the squirm.
Maybe the world still ain't ready (this is most under-reviewed of any Carey film on IMDb) but it is a good film.
With strong elements of humor, con tricks, prison, and a heart that is genuine, it is a very entertaining film.
Hopefully it is a ground-breaking film. It is enjoyable , has real depth, and you would need to be mean spirited indeed to find it repugnant in any way.
Go see, then complain.
