Bad Santa co-screenwriters Glenn Ficara and John Requa re-team for this fact-based black comedy starring Jim Carrey as a Texas police officer-turned-con man who makes the leap to white-collar criminal after being sent to prison and falling in love with his sensitive cellmate. Steve Russell (Carrey) is a small-town cop. Bored with his bland lifestyle, Russell turns to fraud as a means of shaking things up. Before long, Russell's criminal antics have landed him behind bars, where he encounters the charismatic Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). Smitten, Russell devotes his entire life to being with Morris regardless of the consequences -- which could well include a life sentence.~Jason Buchanan
I had originally owned this awesome movie on dvd but figured for the price it’s worth a second visit and I totally am happy that I invested on this Blu-Ray copy for the awesome picture quality and sound!
Surprisingly it's a really good movie. You really have to pay attention or you can lose track of what's happening. It's definitely got some graphic scenes and language. But all in all, it's a great movie. I would recommend this to a friend hesitantly.
