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

Just notice that in the clip at the very, very end of the movie, when Whitey says he thinks he's found the missing thumb, he ducks under without the hose in his mouth. But in the water, it's in. Then when he comes back out, it's out again. See more »

Quotes

Alternate Versions

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;
  • an extended 'butt chin' scene;

Me Laughing, Myself Laughing and Irene's Cute
4 March 2008 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

'Me, Myself and Irene' is one of the few comedies that have a strong repeat value as it always made me laugh every time I rewatched it. Sure it has its share of crude humour. After all, it is a Farelly Brothers movie but none of it bothered me (as was the case with 'There's Something About Mary'. I just love the whole wackiness of it, the adventurous feel, the landscapes, the comic timing, the story, the lively soundtrack...all of it combined brings a freshness. Jim Carrey is in his hilarious comic form. He and Zellweger form a great pair (of course it's also known that they were dating during the film production) and have a brilliant chemistry. Zellweger is cute and vivacious. It was quite fun to watch Chris Cooper play the villain. the rest of the cast (which is a lot) contribute well. 'Me, Myself and Irene' is one of my favorite comedies, simply because it hasn't lost its repeat value and gets me laughing out loud.
