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
Director Peter Farrelly was and is a huge fan of the band, Orpheus, whose 1968 hit single "Can't Find The Time" is covered by 'Hootie & The Blowfish' for the movie's soundtrack. According to an interview which appeared in the Milford Daily News, while in college, Farrelly even dated an Orpheus member's ex-wife who was the inspiration for Amy Smart's character in the film, Outside Providence (1999).

In the beginning of the movie, when Charlie and Shonté start arguing, Shonté takes his jacket off and throws it to one side. The jacket continually changes sides throughout the scene. See more »
'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.
