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

When Whitey and Charlie are in bed, and Whitey reveals he killed his parents, there was a deleted scene when Charlie gets up and the covers move away, a butcher knife can be seen in Whitey's hand. The real version cuts away before the covers reveal the knife. (This is revealed in the director's commentary.) See more »
A lot of this is so dumb, but I laughed harder than expected
"Me, Myself and Irene" doesn't deviate from the Farrellys' trademark scatological humor, but that works to a surprising degree here. It'd be unfair to say that Jim Carrey is the cog that makes this all work (seeing as there are so many other necessary pieces to this puzzle), but he's playing his physical comedy to the hilt, and it's some entertaining stuff. The guy even gets into a convincing brawl with himself. It's beautiful. But it's not just Carrey; Zellweger fits pretty well, his three sons steal every one of their scenes and it even has space enough for a persistent dildo. As a road movie, it's not nearly as focused as "Dumb and Dumber" (really tends to wander), but there's some genuinely funny material here.
Oh, and the music that plays when Jim Carrey snaps is priceless!
