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
Michael Bowman got the role by answering an ad from acting lessons. He has since "somewhat regretted" taking the role due to the on-screen discrimination his character gets. Like his character Whitey, Bowman is an Albino himself. 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 »
I find it strange so many people disliked this movie. Just because a critic dislikes a movie, doesn't mean you have to dislike it too! I'm not suggesting it was the greatest comedy of all time, but it certainly achieved its purpose.
There were easily enough laughs throughout the movie to keep me entertained, and Jim Carrey was his usual talented self. Renee Zellweger played her part well, allowing Carrey to steal most of the thunder. I'm not Carrey's biggest fan when he's being interviewed, but his acting is always impressive and appropriate.
I would definitely like to see Carrey pursue a few more dramatic roles.
