Steven Russell is happily married to Debbie, and a member of the local police force when a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment of his life. Steven becomes open about his homosexuality and decides to live life to the fullest - even if it means breaking the law. Steven's new, extravagant lifestyle involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, soft-spoken Phillip Morris. His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts Steven to attempt and often succeed at one impossible con after another. Written by

When a movie pushes your preconceptions out of the window, surprises you, enlightens you and on top of that it entertains you, you have a great movie. "I Love You Phillip Morris" is that kind of great movie. Daring, fresh, moving and funny. Jim Carrey, this time, takes us for an unusual ride and I was part of it before I knew what hit me. I think this is Jim Carrey's best performance and made me wonder what other surprises he has up his sleeve. The love that blooms in jail between Carrey's character and Phillip Morris - a sensational performance by Ewan MGregor - is so profoundly vivid that I was taken by their own strangely innocent affair and went with them all the way. I found myself tearing up and rooting by this two winning misfits. I will recommend you to push your own preconceptions out of the window and have a great time at the movies.
