I’ve heard from someone who has seen the upcoming Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor film “I Love You Phillip Morris” that it’s gay. Reeeally gay. And I’m all for that. Films like this let me know that just because Carrey does the occasional “Yes Man” for the easy paycheck, he’s still challenging himself with material like this.
However, I couldn’t get anything more specific on the “gay”. Are we talking Richard Simmons-gay? 19th-century gay? Enola Gay? From the looks of this clip, I’m thinking “Gay-as-dysfunctional-as-any-straight-couple,” because you could replace Ewan’s character, Phillip Morris, with a woman and the scene would still work and be just as entertaining. I have high hopes for this flick and hopefully there will be a good word out of Sundance when it screens there next week.
