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
In the scene where Hank is enraged by the softball player carelessly littering, all of the softball players' shirts say Cerrone. This is a reference to the writer who assisted the Farrelly brothers, Mike Cerrone. See more »
In the scene where Hank comes crashing into the building with Dick's car, the driver's side headlight is intact. They show the people in the building, and when the shot returns to the car, the headlight is dangling from its socket. See more »
Under the credits, there are pictures of various featured extras identified by name. See more »
In a special edition release to home video in 2001, there were seven deleted scenes shown after the movie. The scenes were as follows:
a scene of the Colonel talking to Charlie/Hank who is taking a dump on his neighbor's lawn where Charlie/Hank also gives his opinion on an article in the newspaper, and it's being witnessed by Jamaal, Lee Harvey and Shonte Jr.;
Charlie and Irene meet up with the owner of the cow they had tried to kill;
while Irene is being interrogated, Charlie goes into his hotel room and takes out a watermelon and a photo of Irene and gets an idea; soon before Charlie and Irene leave the hotel room, a watermelon with a hole in it rolls out from under the bed;
a comical sex scene;
in the car, Irene hangs a mirror on the rear-view mirror, the sun shines through it and onto Whitey's hat, causing it to catch fire. They throw it into the back of the handicapped guy's car;
This film is not only the funniest film of the year (so far), but one of the best of the year (so far). Jim Carrey's comedy antics (not seen this good in 3 years) makes a come back thanks to the Farrelly brothers (Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary) who make their 2nd collaboration. Here, Carrey plays a gentle police officer who gets screwed in life so many times, he grows a new personality that is incredibly bad.
Carrey plays 2 characters here- 1 (Charlie Baileygates) is a little funny, but the second (Hank) brings out one of Carrey's best performances yet. Renee Zelwegger is a good co-star for Carrey (coincidentally, Carrey dated Zelwegger off set just like how he dated Lauren Holly off set of Dumb and Dumber). The best scenes include the hilarious sex scenes, and Carrey's kids, who are straight A black guys who curse in every other sentence and yell German at each other. Split personality is at it's best here.
