Charlie is a Rhode Island state trooper with a 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 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
There are several moments throughout the film that Hank whistles along with the soundtrack, but Charley 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 »
After Whitey tells Charlie his secret, Charlie explains it to Irene. In this scene, his chin looks larger underneath the bandages. In the next scene when they lie on bed, his chin looks normal again. See more »
After the credits, there's a search for the missing thumb. See more »
Also the final deleted scene in the special edition featured a scene after Irene and Hank pushed the car off the cliff and into the water and Hank notices his wallet is missing so he dives into the water to get it back and finds out that he, like Charlie, cannot swim. See more »
Great directing, great story line, great acting. Jim Carrey is brilliant in his role as both "Hank" and "Charlie." The problem with rating any comedy is that what's funny for one person is repulsive, boring or stupid to the next. You can't please everyone---but this one definitely comes close (hence, the above average overall rating at IMDB). Don't miss this one!
