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

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. See more »

Goofs

Scenes of Charlie/Hank's house were shot in the Bonnet Shores neighborhood, in the town of Narragansett. At one point, Charlie/Hank leaves his house for a drive (I think to work). The very next shot shows him driving west over the Newport Bridge, which is the incorrect direction if he's leaving from Narragansett. See more »

Quotes

Hank Evans: So, what's your tale, Mother Goose? Where ya from?
Irene P. Waters: Oh, all over.
Hank Evans: Omnipresence. I like that in a woman.

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;

Breathing Styles Differ
23 January 2001 | by daveisitSee all my reviews

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.
