Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced that last year’s comedy based on a true story I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS, starring Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor and Leslie Mann, will be available on Blu-ray April 5, 2011. The film follows Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) who is a married man and outstanding citizen who after a car accident decides he must be true himself and comes out of the closet to lead his life as a gay man. To supplement his lifestyle he turns into a conman that ends up in jail. In prison he meets the sweet and naive Phillip Morris and the two fall in love all the while dealing with Russell’s need to swindle others. The film had a limited theatrical release in December.
This was one of those films where you can’t help but connect with the characters because Carrey and McGregor just make them so likable. It’s a lighthearted comedy that I would highly recommend picking up for the performances alone. Special features include:
