Jim Carrey Professes His Love For Emma Stone In Funny/ Creepy YouTube Video

Yes Man Jim Carreys Disfugured Face 3 1 10 kc Jim Carrey Professes His Love For Emma Stone In Funny/ Creepy YouTube Video
So this… this is creepy.  According to The AV Club, Jim Carrey (he of the talking butt routine, as well as the “watch me be really serious and dramatic in this movie and please forget that I used to talk out of my butt” routine) has released a video on YouTube wherein he professes his love for young actress Emma Stone, and then proceeds to describe how he would seduce her, were he not pushing 50.
Weird, no?  Check it out:
While it seems Carrey is simply kidding (but, as the AV Club points out, it appears to be “like when you’re barking up the tree of a hot female acquaintance that clearly has no interest in you, and you’re like, ‘Ha ha, wouldn’t it be funny if we slept together? That would be hilarious,’” kind of way), it’s still a little, well, odd.  Carrey made an explanation via Twitter:
“Yes, my msg to Emma Stone was a comedy routine and the funniest part is that everything i said is tru [sic].”
You know, I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that not every celebrity needs to celebrate the wonder that it social media—I just can’t get his creepy, unblinking stare out of my head (ok, that’s more because of the terrible The Number 23 film, but still).

Never one to not nip at the heels of larger pop culture figures in order to expand her own name brand recognition, Kathy Griffin has now responded to the hyper-creepy/ sorta funny but still creepy video Jim Carrey released yesterday, in which he professed his love for actress and Emma Stone,  satirized social media confessions, and still managed to come off as more than a little spooky.  Griffin’s response?  Make a video to Justin Bieber that essentially steals what Carrey did and adds… well, actually it doesn’t really add anything than the fact that you can actually tell Griffin is joking, along with a sheen of desperate “LOOK AT ME” on the part of Griffen.

So, Griffin essentially made fun of Carrey’s joke by… retelling Carrey’s joke.  Well, I guess she added a Jay Leno level o

Son of the Mask

Rated PG, 86 min. Directed by Lawrence Guterman. Starring Jamie Kennedy, Alan Cumming, Bob Hoskins, Traylor Howard, Steven Wright, Liam Falconer, Ryan Falconer, Ben Stein.


Son of the Mask Squarely targeted at the movie-going demographic that finds culinary ecstasy in Froot Loops-and-Jolt Cola pick-me-ups, marathon PlayStation weekends, and CGI-everything, this semisequel to 1994’s surprise breakout Jim Carrey vehicle retains absolutely none of its predecessor’s manic charm, and instead relies almost entirely on a ceaseless barrage of everything-and-the-kitchen-sink humor. While it tries mightily to parrot the classic animated worlds of Tex Avery and Chuck Jones, it nonetheless falls flatter than Avery’s libidinous Wolf post-steamroller on all counts. As Tim Avery, a budding cartoonist stuck in a dead-end advertising gig, Kennedy gets involved with the titular cursed mask after his dog drags it home and transforms into the wildly annoying, hyper-canine version of what looks like an outtake from John Carpenter’s The Thing, minus the grue. Not to be outdone, Tim soon ends up with the hideous wooden thing on his own puss, which results in a newfound skill at his job and a nightmarish romantic evening with wife Tonya (Howard) that nets – wait for it! – a mask-borne offspring. Christened Alvey (Liam and Ryan Falconer), the pint-sized hellion takes his cues from Cartoon Network and, in particular, Chuck Jones’ far-superior short "One Froggy Evening." Did I mention Norse gods Odin (Hoskins) and Loki (Cumming, still apparently on his Spy Kids Fegan Floop-high) are also along for the ride and out to get their missing mask back? It’s somehow comforting to know that kids will come out of this film with a very, very rudimentary understanding of Norse mythology, but something tells me that’s not what they’ll recall in the long run. Director Guterman shoots every jittery sequence as though on a sugar-bender, with editing to match. If the film’s nonstop CGI effects were anything other than just plain bad, this might be salvageable, but as it is the film can’t hold a candle to Joe Dante’s hellion kiddie effects in his "It’s a Good Life" segment in 1983’s Twilight Zone: The Movie, itself uneven but vastly more entertaining than anything seen here (with the possible exception of the spiky-haired Alan Cumming, who is always a welcome addition to any film involving characters sporting Mr. Sardonicus smiles). But for anyone who assumed Kennedy’s experiment couldn’t sink any lower than Malibu’s Most Wanted, there are, it appears, ever deeper depths in the realm of comedic misfires.

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Rated PG, 113 min. Directed by Brad Silberling. Starring Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep, Jude Law, Emily Browning, Liam Aiken, Kara Hoffman, Shelby Hoffman, Timothy Spall, Billy Connolly, Cedric the Entertainer, Luis Guzmán, Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Adams, Craig Ferguson, Jamie Harris.


"If you are interested in stories with happy endings, you would be better off watching some other movie," warns our narrator, Lemony Snicket (voiced by Jude Law and seen only in silhouette). "In this movie," he continues gravely, "not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle." These words are transposed near verbatim from page to screen in director Brad Silberling’s spirited adaptation of the first three books in Daniel Handler’s hugely popular Lemony Snicket series. Comparisons to Harry Potter, that other recent tsunamic children’s series, are inevitable; whereas it took the HP movie franchise three tries (and a fresh director) to get it right, Silberling bangs it out of the park at first bat. Along with screenwriter Robert Gordon (who wisely preserves whole chunks of Handler’s sly, prune-faced text), Silberling mostly succeeds in re-creating the novels’ distinct tone of dark, darker, darkest. There’s no sunnying up the grim premise of the Snicket series: It begins with a fire that destroys the home and parents of the three exceptional Baudelaire children: the eldest, Violet (Browning), an inventor; Klaus (Aiken), a voracious reader; and Sunny (Kara and Shelby Hoffman), a babbling infant whose most distinct talent is to chew through just about anything (which makes for a few cheeky sight gags; the film also enjoys some of its heartier laughs by providing English subtitles to Sunny’s seeming gibberish). The children, quickly orphaned, are willed over to the sinister Count Olaf (Carrey), a wannabe actor with designs on the Baudelaire fortune; the film then ambles through several of Olaf’s attempts to snare their inheritance. (Only in the film’s final confrontation does the script’s episodic nature feel hurried and half-finished.) As in all Jim Carrey’s comic creations, the man occasionally pokes through the skin of the character(s) – in addition to Count Olaf, Carrey takes on the guise of a peg-legged sea captain and a fusty reptile expert. Carrey is a bit of a conundrum: He’s the best and worst thing about Lemony Snicket. Creeping around in Olaf’s wind-tunnel shock of hair, pawing the air with his bird-claw hands, Carrey and his physical comedy prowess produce moments of shocking hilarity. But this manic flailing for a laugh – a laugh that, more often than not, Carrey will nail – also means that Olaf has lost much of his menace. He still does extremely bad deeds, but we all know that’s Jim Carrey under the prosthetic nose. That may bring comfort to younger viewers, but I suspect it will disappoint the books’ older fanbase, who’d been hoping for a screen villain that didn’t mellow the macabreness of the book version. (They might also sniff at the film’s occasional, predictable dip into treacle.) That’s the purist argument. The rest of me thrilled at Carrey’s nutty reinvention of the Count. More conventionally cast, but no less impressive, are Browning and Aiken, who anchor the film with their big eyes, Dickensian plight, and contemporary pluck. The biggest huzzahs, however, must go to production designer Rich Heinrichs and art directors John Dexter and Martin Whist, who have worked with Tim Burton in the past. With respectful nods to Edward Gorey and Charles Addams, the design teams produce one electrifying locale after another, from a fire-gutted Victorian manse to a sun-drenched reptile room to a crazy-angled clifftop house where a simple doorknob becomes a very dangerous thing, indeed. There, in the visuals, is the real menace, while Count Olaf, defanged, pops in for blessed bits of comic relief. A grammatical error has been corrected since the review's original publication date.

Chandni Chowk to China

Chandni Chowk to China

Chandni Chowk to China

Rated PG-13, 154 min. Directed by Nikhil Advani. Starring Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Mithun Chakraborty, Ranvir Shorey, Gordon Liu.


Anyone whose familiarity with Bollywood cinema extends no further than the closing dance number in Slumdog Millionaire is almost certain to have one of two possible reactions to this, the first "real" Bollywood film to be co-produced and released in the States by Warner Bros. Reaction No. 1 involves disbelief, confusion, a palpable sense that time has slowed to the pace of a geriatric snail while simultaneously elasticizing itself into Roger Ramjet velocities, and a nameless dread that one is just not getting it. Reaction No. 2 – and the one most likely to come from audiences who have had previous experience with the raw all-singing, all-dancing, often endearing schizophrenic chaos that is the hallmark of Bollywood films – should fall somewhere between drowsy animosity and a vaguely protective sense of Bollywood fan-based cinematic propriety. It's a mess (and it's over 2½-hours long), but aren't all Bollywood films? Short answer: No. (For proof, go check out Om Shanti Om, Farah Khan's devilishly imaginative 2007 homage to classic Bollywood conventions.) Leading man Kumar – think of early Jim Carrey on goofballs – plays Sidhu, a lowly potato peeler working in his father's food stand in the Dehli slums. Always on the lookout for a message from the gods, Sidhu discovers a sign in a tuber bearing the vague likeness of pachydermal Lord Ganesh. There are not enough pages in The Austin Chronicle to detail even the least of Sidhu's adventures; suffice it to say he's suckered into the belief that he's the reincarnation of an ancient Chinese swordsman. Thus, it's off to China to battle the evil despot Hojo (legendary Hong Kong action master Liu, of the Kill Bill films), with Om Shanti Om's sex bomb Padukune on board in a dual romantic role. What else to say but "hilarity ensues"? Not that much hilarity, actually, although if you're one of the 10-plus human beings who enjoyed Jackie Chan's ceaseless mugging in City Hunter, you'll probably also dig Kumar's gift for facial tics and the frequent outbursts of (admittedly well-choreographed) splashy musical numbers. Me, I just wanted to jam chopsticks into his irritatingly overactive eyes and let the feral dogs of Dehli have their way. As for the Pan-Asian angle, Kung Fu Hustle this is not, although there are some egregious similarities to that Stephen Chow film. Chandni Chowk's everything-and-the-kitchen-stank approach to kung fu comedics makes Chow's slapstick antics look like austere Robert Bresson by comparison. It's chop-socky vindaloo, pleasing on a platter but awfully difficult to swallow whole.

Mr. Popper's Penguins

Mr. Popper's Penguins

Mr. Popper's Penguins

Rated PG, 95 min. Directed by Mark Waters. Starring Jim Carrey, Carla Gugin, Angela Lansbury, Ophelia Lovibond, Maxwell Perry Cotton, Madeline Carroll, Clark Gregg.


The good news is that in Mr. Popper’s Penguins Jim Carrey is neither in his ridiculous mode where he talks out of his ass nor in his serious mode where his behavior and line delivery is mawkishly sentimental. Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a children’s story in which Carrey draws a little from both sides of the spectrum but manages to find a happy medium – which is about right for a comedy about a divorced father who cohabits with penguins. Equally good news is that these penguins don’t converse with humans. Talking animals have become all the rage in kids’ movies over the last couple of years, and I lay the blame squarely at the feet (paws?) of Alvin and the Chipmunks. Mr. Popper’s Penguins uses a mix of live animals and CGI, but the animals, despite a little creative license, behave like the animals they were born to be and not some pipsqueak, wiseacre humans. These penguins honk and squawk, but they never cross the line and start speaking English, and the CGI work seems mostly reserved for stunts and tomfoolery. The film is based on a 1938 Newberry Award-winning children’s book and perhaps now has a built-in film audience due to the success of the documentary March of the Penguins. Carrey plays a New York City wheeler-dealer who lives in a grand apartment and is separated from his wife (Gugino), with whom he remains on friendly terms, and two children (Carroll and Cotton). When he is sent the penguins by his own long-absent father, his apartment suddenly seems to his children an exciting place to hang out rather than an obligatory weekend domicile. Things escalate the more emotionally involved he becomes. A subplot about the sale of Central Park’s famous Tavern on the Green (owned here by a dowager played by Lansbury) will not interest the kids, but there remains a lot of splendid and loose physical comedy between man and penguin. Sure, we know that once a gala at the Guggenheim Museum is mentioned that there are going to be a half-dozen penguins sliding down the structure’s circular hallways, but the fun of seeing it unfold feels fresh. Of course, all family issues are happily resolved in the end – as is the penguins’ fate. In the sea of mediocrity that passes for children’s films these days, Mr. Popper’s Penguins has enough originality (and silly physical comedy) to make it stand out. Like carrying snow to Antarctica, Mr. Popper’s Penguins is not on a fool’s mission.

Street Signs: Kiddie Art Is Damn Adorable

This is pretty damn adorable: Drawn on a sidewalk along Pacific Street in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn by a 45-year-old local artist... Okay, kidding! This kid's work is awfully sweet.And then there's this kid: not adorable. Downright gruesome, in fact. *

Dan Lacey: A Painter Of Pancakes

Now why didn't I think of this? Brooklyn-born artist Dan Lacey (who now lives in Minnesota) has produced a series of celebrity portraits, uh, wearing pancakes on their heads. Hilarious, inspired... and making me kind of hungry.

As you can see from his blog at faithmouse.blogspot.com, for some reason, Lacey prefers to paint in the nude (with paint palette thakfully covering his naughty bits). I particularly love the Michele Bachmann "Pancake Eyes." *

AMERICA UNCHAINED

D: Andy Devonshire
"Documentary comedian" Dave Gorman's cross-country travelogue chronicles with scruffy charm a search for mom-and-pop America from behind the wheel of a 1974 Torino wagon. En route, Gorman will eat at no chain restaurants and sleep in no corporate motels, and his gas must come from independent service stations. It's a frightfully clever concept executed with cheek – Gorman loves the low angles of his wood-paneled road schooner, and he milks the Englishman-abroad angle – but the film works best when it discovers the places it purports to celebrate: a Main Street soda shop in Independence, Ore.; a B&B in the shape of a giant beagle whose owner laments the "homogenization" of America; a motel whose clerk invites Gorman over for Thanksgiving dinner. Sometimes Gorman pushes his agenda a bit baldly when simple curiosity would better serve his mission, but he concedes graciously when rescued by kindly employees of a Sinclair station. – Marrit Ingman

* * *

Jim Carrey combined the rubber-faced rubber-boned antics of a Jerry Lewis with the zany improvisational style of a Robin Williams (with a heavy dash of Williams's acting ability thrown in) to make some of the most successful and entertaining comedies of the 1990s and to launch him into the superstar stratosphere—Carrey becoming the first actor to break the $20-million-per-film wage barrier.
His beginnings could not have been humbler. His father, a professional musician, sold his saxophone to pay his wife's hospital bills, and at various points the family lived in a Volkswagen camper and in a tent. After years as the resident white guy on television's enormously popular In Living Color , he took on the serious role of a son with a drinking problem in the television movie Doing Time on Maple Street (1992). But what launched him into superstar status were the three comedies he made in 1994: Ace Ventura: Pet Detective , The Mask , and Dumb & Dumber , with a combined global box office draw of $550 million. In Ace Ventura , Carrey cuts loose as the bizarre pet detective designed to make outrageous fun of leading men. In The Mask he plays an average guy given superhuman powers by an ancient Norse mask, and although the (literally) eye-popping special effects based on classic Tex Avery cartoons were supplied by Industrial Light & Magic, as Richard Corliss in Time said "Carrey doesn't need any cybernetics or silicon to rubberize his limbs. He is his own best special effect, the first star who is a live-action toon." Dumb & Dumber was an over-the-top slob comedy in the same vein as the Farrelly brother's subsequent There's Something about Mary . But even in Dumb & Dumber , there's a scene where his character stares out a window and says, "You know what I'm sick and tired of? I'm sick and tired of having to eke my way through life," and the audience really feels for the guy.
After Batman Forever and the Ace Ventura sequel (both 1995), Carrey became the $20 million man with The Cable Guy (1996), where his performance was evidently a little too dark for most audiences. The movie's failure caused Hollywood to question actors' soaring salaries, but not before Stallone, Schwarzenegger, and other superstars demanded higher pay (Carrey has subsequently agreed to work for less). Liar Liar (1997) put Carrey back on top with one of his best performances, as an attorney forced to tell the truth for 24 hours because of a birthday wish his son made. Carrey's performance is reminiscent of Steve Martin's in All of Me , except instead of fighting Lily Tomlin's soul occupying half his body, he's fighting this birthday wish, making the wish seem completely tangible in the process. The movie finds clever variations on a potentially repetitive theme (a la Groundhog Day ), with his backed-into-a-corner lawyer finally forced to win a case by actually using his brain instead of his usual bag of knee-jerk, lawyerly tricks. And Carrey's a good enough actor to make you believe the "I love my son" ending.
The Truman Show (1998) was considered by most to be Carrey's breakthrough performance. In it, he plays Truman Burbank, the unwitting star of a 24-hour-a-day real-life drama unfolding on the world's largest movie set. As an "everyman," Carrey acts without his manic side, in what Corliss called "a performance of profound charm, innocence, vulnerability and pain." Many predicted Carrey would win an Oscar for his performance, but the award eluded him. Similar predictions for an Oscar returned when critics saw Carrey's uncanny performance of Andy Kaufman in Milos Forman's Man on the Moon (1999). Many felt he was again snubbed when Carrey did not win the Oscar. Kaufman, the groundbreaking comedian/performance artist who died in 1984, was one of Carrey's inspirations, and in the film Carrey throws himself into each of Kaufman's diverse personae—the wide-eyed Foreign Man, the sneering wrestler of women, the obnoxious Tony Clifton—with such conviction that those who actually knew Kaufman were completely spooked. Janet Maslin in the New York Times called Carrey's performance "an electrifying homage," while Newsweek claimed, "Jim Carrey may be a better Andy Kaufman than Andy Kaufman was," and Time said it was very possibly the best work Carrey had ever done. Should Academy members ever finally realize that great comedic talent is as rare as great dramatic talent, perhaps Carrey will one day get his due, but in the meantime at least he should be happy with the compensation.

Happy 50th Birthday, Ace! Snakkle Looks Back at Our Favorite Jim Carrey Moments

SSSSmokin’! Jim Carrey first burst into fame as the scorching (literally) Fire Marshall Bill on In Living Color. From the manic Mask to sassy Ace Ventura to lovelorn Joel Barish, Carrey has taken us to the moon and back (hat tip, Andy Kaufman). As Carrey marks his 50th birthday, we’re happy to homage Carrey’s—and comedy’s—most iconic roles. By Katherine Butler on January 12, 2012

Jim Carrey on In Living Color (1990-1994)
Sure, we had seen Jim around the screens big and small, but it wasn’t until the 1990 TV premiere of In Living Color that the world really met the now-28-year-old Jim Carrey, genius facial contortionist. Pictured here is Carrey as female body builder Vera De Milo, teaching us the true meaning of fear.

Jim Carrey

YOU'RE LOOKING AT PROOF that Jim Carrey, 35, can stretch his $20 million face any way he wants and it never freezes that way. In fact, it bounces smack into leading man territory. "Jim is extremely sexy," says his Liar Liar costar Swoosie Kurtz. "His face, his body, his height [6'2]—he is kind of lanky and loose and relaxed. He's got a handsome, straightforward, midwestern look." Carrey is only too happy to share how he comes by it. "You know what I do almost every day?" he asks impishly. "I wash. Personal hygiene is part of the package with me."

Even when he created the unique geeks who stumbled through two Ace Ventura films and Dumb & Dumber, Carrey didn't draw from personal experience. In high school near Toronto, "I probably had some pretty bad hair days," he admits, "but I was never an ugly person."

Now he gets a boost from actress Lauren Holly, 33, his wife of seven months. "She is always saying that she does everything to make me look really good," says Carrey, who relies on her to pick out unwrinkled clothes and shoes that match. "And then she gets upset because she hears girls going, 'Oooh, you are so good-looking, Jim.' "

Still, his Liar Liar castmate Amanda Donohoe speaks for the majority of fans when she says that the sexiest thing about Carrey is his "humor. Let's face it, every woman likes to be made to laugh."

When Jim Carrey and the MTV Movie Awards come together there’s usually something to talk about and this year was no different.

Before the awards he told MTV News ‘I’m wearing a suit that I’ve had made. It’s the latest in nanotechnology, so I’m able to project whatever I want on it.’

Introducing the Foo Fighters, Carrey appeared on stage donning a bright green suit, as images were projected onto him through the wonder of ‘cutting-edge chroma-key technology’ – the best images being two dogs humping!

It’s not the first time Carrey has a laugh at the awards. In 1999 he showed up as a hippie to collect his award for Best Male Performance for The Truman Show.

In 2006 he went all culty and dressed in white when he accepted MTV Generation Award and was accompanied by 60 winged angels.

‘Why am I so blessed?’ he asked. ‘Why is my life so miraculous? Why do so many struggle with fame while I’m able to float effortlessly on the upper edges of the Hollywood status-phere? You like that word ‘status-phere’? I made it up last night. I made up a word.’

The big winners of the night were Twilight bunch which won five awards including Best Kiss for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. R-Patz was so happy about it (or maybe he felt bad for his co-star) he launched himself on Taylor Lautner and planted a big smackaroo on his lips.

Kick-AssChloë Grace Moretz won two awards - Best Badass Star and Best Breakout Star and Best Comedic Performance went to Emma Stone for Easy A.

The Year's Best Films - 1999 Top Ten

1999 Top Ten
 
What a wonderful year for film! Some folks say, "They don't make them like they used to." Save for a handful of classics spanning the century; each year cinematography, acting, directing, writing has gotten better and better! I find that very exciting.
Of the nearly 150 films I've seen this year (drum roll please) here are my top ten picks. The first three stand way out from the crowd. (Btw, surfer's who've sent in their opinions have also selected "The Sixth Sense" as the number one film of 1999.)
The Sixth Sense A+
Excellent. Go see it. "The Sixth Sense" bills itself as a psychological thriller, but it's really more of a supernatural adventure picture that will "raise those prickly hairs on the back of your neck." Bruce Willis plays a child psychologist trying to "heal" a paranoid boy (Osment). The boy's affliction: he's always scared. And he has good reason to be.
Toy Story 2 A+
Magnificent, super fantastic, rich, wonderful, full, stop-what-your-doing-and-go-see-it appeal. Where can I start? Voices? Terrific. How about visuals and art direction? Superb. Action? Comedy? Fun? Yes. Yes. Yes. Okay, then screenplay and story line? Better than the original "Toy Story." A mere ounce of this carefully refined script could fuel a rocketship to infinity and beyond!
Magnolia A+
"Magnolia" is magnificent! You know those plate jugglers? The ones that start a plate spinning up on a bendy rod. That's impressive enough, isn't it? But they set up another and another, until there are nine plates tottering on sticks all over the stage. Then you're not only impressed, but you start to feel like your attention or your muse or your thoughts themselves are like wobbling plates. You slowly come to realize that the able juggler has a plan larger than tableware ... you've been set spinning on a bendy rod. Writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson is that juggler.
Tea With Mussolini A
Cher shines with the spirit of "Life is Beautiful," but she is just one of the many directed to near performance perfection in this finely scripted production of life for elite Brit's in W.W.II Italy.
Runaway Bride A
Galloping onto the screen, a bride in full gown rides horseback through a field of tall grass accompanied by U2's "Still haven't found what I'm looking for." "Runaway Bride" puts a strong hoof forward and never looks back. It's a film full of solid, polished dialogue with a great premise, a clinch cast and veteran director. It won't leave you sobbing at the altar.
Office Space A
"It's not that I'm lazy -- I just don't care," Peter (Livingston) explains to the two shocked efficiency experts hired to down-size the software company at which he works. Peter is the generic every-person toiling with traffic, patronizing bosses, temperamental office equipment and the Y2K problem. One day all that unspoken tension comes to a boiling point, but instead of exploding ... it dissipates, leaving him in a floating state of Nirvana.
Children of Heaven A
This is a sweet film about a boy, his sister and shoes. Ali is a 10 year old living in a small town in Iran. His family is poor and behind in rent payments; his mother ill. Ali sincerely tries to help out, but he ends up losing his little sister Zahra's shoes during an errand to have them repaired. (Subtitles.)
Rushmore A
"When one person has the opportunity to live an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself." This quote, scribbled in a book at the Rushmore School library, sums up the eccentric film.
Tarzan A
"Tarzan" swings onto the screen with the power and grace of a charging cheetah. The story of a lost infant in an African jungle is told richly with music (Phil Collins) and colorful images. You know the rest: British anthropologists, Professor Porter and daughter Jane, come to observe while their bodyguard, Clayton, upsets the jungle paradise.
Man on the Moon A
Jim Carrey portrays the eccentric, controversial comic Andy Kaufman (1949-1984) who charmed audiences with his Latka character on the 1970's sitcom "Taxi," shocked millions with his disruptive antics on the live-taped "Fridays," baffled all of us with his incitingly sexist challenges to wrestle women on TV, and finally left us in 1984 wondering if his death was just another prank.
The runners up:
Dogma
Payback
Return With Honor
South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut
The Wood
American Pie
Anywhere But Here
The Insider
Mystery, AK
T2:3D (only at Universal Studios)
So run that tape cleaner through your VCR and stop by your local video rental store. Hey, here's a home sound system tip. Dolby's Pro-Logic Surround Systems are quite inexpensive these days due to the newer digital decks (I've seen the amp + 5 speakers for as low as $250). Pro-logic (make sure the deck says specifically "Pro-Logic") is still a fine product, coupled with a VCR sporting hi-fi Stereo -- you can be hearing movies better in your home than in many theater houses.

Biography

Carrey with the second Golden Globe he won for his role in Man on the Moon (1999)
James Eugene Carrey (born January 17, 1962), best known as Jim Carrey, is a BAFTA-nominated and two-time Golden Globe Award-winning Canadian-American actor and a stand-up comedian. He is probably best known for his manic and slapstick performances in comedy films such as Dumb and Dumber, The Mask, Liar Liar and Bruce Almighty.

Carrey has also achieved critical success in dramatic roles in films such as The Truman Show, Man on the Moon, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Yes Man and I Love You Phillip Morris.

Early life

Carrey was born in Newmarket, Ontario, the son of Kathleen, a homemaker, and Percy Carrey, a musician and accountant. He has three older siblings, John, Patricia, and Rita. The family was Catholic and of part French Canadian ancestry (as the original surname was Carré).

After his family moved to Scarborough, Ontario when Carrey was 14, he attended the Blessed Trinity Catholic School in North York for two years, enrolled at Agincourt Collegiate Institute, Scarborough’s oldest high school for another year, then briefly attended Northview Heights Secondary School for the remainder of his high school career (altogether, he spent three years in grade 10).

Carrey lived in Burlington, Ontario, for eight years and attended Aldershot High School. In a Hamilton Spectator interview (February 2007), Carrey remarked, “If my career in show business hadn’t panned out I would probably be working today in Hamilton, Ontario at the Dofasco steel mill.”

In 1979, under the management of Leatrice Spevack, Carrey started doing stand-up comedy at Yuk Yuk’s in Toronto, where he rose to become a headliner in February 1981, shortly after his 19th birthday. One reviewer in the Toronto Star raved that Carrey was “a genuine star coming to life.”

The Comedy Store in Los Angeles
In the early 1980’s, Carrey moved to Los Angeles and started working at The Comedy Store, where he was noticed by comedian Rodney Dangerfield. Dangerfield liked Carrey’s performance so much that he signed Carrey to open Dangerfield’s tour performances.

Carrey then turned his attention to the film and television industries, auditioning to be a cast member for the 1980–1981 season of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Carrey was not selected for the position at that time although he did host the show in May 1996.

Joel Schumacher had him audition for a role in D.C. Cab, though in the end, nothing ever came of it.duckfactorycover

His first lead role on television was Skip Tarkenton, a young animation producer on NBC’s short-lived The Duck Factory, airing from April 12, 1984, to July 11, 1984, and offering a behind-the-scenes look at the crew that produced a children’s cartoon.

Carrey continued working in smaller film and television roles, which led to a friendship with fellow comedian Damon Wayans, who co-starred with Carrey as a fellow extraterrestrial in 1989’s Earth Girls Are Easy.

livingcolorWhen Wayans’ brother, Keenen, began developing a sketch comedy show for Fox called In Living Color, Carrey was hired as a cast member, whose unusual characters included masochistic safety inspector Fire Marshall Bill (whose dangerous “safety tips” were the target of censors and watchdog groups who saw the character as a dangerous example for naive younger viewers), and masculine female bodybuilder Vera de Milo.

His on-screen antics caught the eye of Hollywood.

Filmscoppermountain

Carrey made his film debut in Rubberface (1983), which was released as Introducing … Janet. Later that year, he won the leading role in Damian Lee’s Canadian skiing comedy Copper Mountain, which included his impersonation of Sammy Davis Jr. Since the film had a less than one hour runtime consisting largely of musical performances by Rita Coolidge and Rompin’ Ronnie Hawkins, it was not considered a genuine feature film.

A few years later, Carrey saw his first major starring role in the dark comedy Once Bitten, in the role of Mark Kendall, a teen oncebittenvirgin pursued by a 400-year old female vampire (played by Lauren Hutton).

After supporting roles in films such as Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), Earth Girls Are Easy (1988), and The Dead Pool (1988),

Jim Carrey loves the pro-disease movement


 
Jim Carrey maybe isn’t a medical doctor.
Living with Jenny McCarthy must have infected Jim Carrey’s brain, because yesterday he posted an astonishingly fallacious antivaccination propaganda piece for the Huffington Post screed.
Carrey is the boyfriend of Public Health Threat Jenny McCarthy and has been an antivaccination advocate for some time. He is a funny guy and a movie star, but I don’t think either of those things should give him a public voice wherein he can mislead people about vaccinations.
The article Carrey wrote has so much wrong in it that it almost qualifies as self-satirizing. His very first paragraph is a textbook example of spin. Basically, a few months ago a special court looked at three cases of potential damage due to vaccinations, and found no evidence of any connection. About this, Carrey says:
…a ruling against causation in three cases out of more than 5000 hardly proves that other children won’t be adversely affected by the MMR, let alone that all vaccines are safe. This is a huge leap of logic by anyone’s standards.
That last line comes dangerously close to an out-and-out lie on Carrey’s part, and it’s certainly dead wrong. The three cases that were presented to the special courts were chosen by the people presenting the cases themselves as the strongest of all their claims. And the courts did far more than simply find no link between between vaccines and autism; they called the antivax claims "speculative and unpersuasive." One of the

James Eugene "Jim" Carrey (born January 17, 1962) is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, singer and writer.
He has received two Golden Globe Awards and has also been nominated on four occasions. Carrey began comedy in 1979, performing
at Yuk Yuk's in Toronto, Ontario. After gaining prominence in 1981, he began working at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles where he was
soon noticed by comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who immediately signed him to open his tour performances. Carrey, long interested in film
and television, developed a close friendship with comedian Damon Wayans, which landed him a role in the sketch comedy hit In Living Color,
in which he portrayed various characters during the show's 1990 season



Having had little success in television movies and several low-budget films, Carrey was cast as the title character in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
which premiered in February, 1994, making more than $72 million domestically despite receiving mixed critical reception.[1] The film spawned a
sequel, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995), in which he reprised the role of Ventura. High profile roles followed when he was cast as Stanley
Ipkiss in The Mask (1994) for which he gained a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, and as Lloyd Christmas in the comedy film Dumb and Dumber (1994).

Between 1996 and 1999, Carrey continued his success after earning lead roles in several highly popular films including The Cable Guy (1996), Liar Liar (1997),
in which he was nominated for another Golden Globe Award and in the critically acclaimed films The Truman Show and Man on the Moon, in 1998 and 1999,
respectively. Both films earned Carrey Golden Globe awards. Since earning both awards, Carrey continued to star in comedy films, including How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
where he played the title character, Bruce Almighty (2003) where he portrayed the role of unlucky TV reporter Bruce Nolan, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004),
Fun with Dick and Jane (2005), Yes Man (2008), and A Christmas Carol (2009). Carrey has also taken on more serious roles including Joel Barish in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
alongside Kate Winslet and Kirsten Dunst, which earned him another Golden Globe nomination, and Steven Jay Russell in I Love You Phillip Morris (2009) alongside Ewan McGregor.
