I love you Phillip Morris

I have just watched I love you Phillip Morris earlier and it was really hilarious.The trailer made my jaw drop because it is the first time that I have seen Jim Carrey and Ewan Mcgregor act as a gay couple.The scene wherein Jim is shouting I love you to another dude is really something so I gave in to my  curiosity and decided to watch this.

Just to give you an overview on what this movie is all about. 

I Love You Phillip Morris is a comedy-drama film based on the real life events of con artistimpostor, and multiple prison escapee Steven Jay Russell played by Jim Carrey. While incarcerated, Russell falls in love with his cell mate, Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). After Morris is released from prison, Russell escapes from prison four times in order to be reunited with Morris.

There is no eww factor on this movie because there is no love scene or kissing scene shown.There is a scene though wherein Jim commented on Ewan becoming really good at what he was doing it and then they both emerged from the boat looking very happy.For me the scene was done in a way that made the audience laugh instead of being grossed out so you don't have to worry about kids getting the wrong idea. 

The performance of Ewan Mcgregor is simply amazing because his performance there was believable.He really did look,act and speak like a gay man and if I don't know him well enough as an actor then I would have believed that he is really swinging the other way. 

I also like the story line and I was amazed on how a con artist can escape and then go back to prison for his partner without being recognized.His ideas were ingenious,creative and I was in a way sad that he used all those talent to swindle other people and to embezzle a lot of money. Imagine faking the symptoms of  aids and then planning your death.Oh no i'm giving too much away. Anyways if you want to just laugh your problems out or to have a break from all the myth and vampire inspired movies then you can watch I love you Phillip Morris.
