Storyline

Charlie Baileygates (Jim Carrey) is a Rhode Island state trooper with 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 Waters (Renée Zellweger) 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 <jgp3553@excite.com>

Trivia

There are several moments throughout this movie that Hank whistles along with the soundtrack, but Charlie never does. This could either be a simple fourth wall break, or it could be implying that Hank is somehow aware of the music. See more »

Goofs

When Charlie and Irene leave for New York, the Colonel and his assistant are talking about him being a liability. The assistant says "But Captain, Police Work is Charlie's life...", incorrectly addressing the Colonel as a Captain. See more »

Quotes

Jamaal: These two motherfuckers can do the shopping, and I'll do the cooking.
Lee Harvey: Man, you'll do the cooking? Man, you're the one who thought you got chipped beef from a toothy blowjob.

Alternate Versions

When Whitey and Charlie are in bed, and Whitey reveals he killed his parents, there was a deleted scene when Charlie gets up and the covers move away, a butcher knife can be seen in Whitey's hand. The real version cuts away before the covers reveal the knife. (This is revealed in the director's commentary.) See more »

Jim Carrey and the Farrely doing what they do best.
3 July 2000 | by bat-5See all my reviews

There is probably no other movie coming out this summer that will produce more from the gut laughs than Me, Myself & Irene. Sure it's crude, sure it's vulgar and juvenile at times, but sometimes we just have to take ourselves back to when we were younger and used to laugh at things that we would otherwise find rather disgusting. The main treat is to watch Carrey transform from the sweet natured Charlie to the vulgar, Dirty Harry sounding Hank. Hank does things that not many people would even dream of, and it's a kick to see him get away with some of them. Equally funny are Charlie's three sons, who are highly intelligent, love their dad and use a certain phrase to great effect. Some may find this movie offensive and occasionally funny at times, but I found it enjoyable from beginning to end. A good way to blow off steam from a bad day.
