You can keep your Valentine’s Day. The film I want to see on March 26 is I Love You Phillip Morris starring Jim Carrey, Ewan Mcgregor, Leslie Mann, and Rodrigo Santoro. The film received lots of love at last year’s Sundance Film Festival and I think it’s great that such big name actors like Carrey and McGregor are willing to go gay for such a bizarre-yet-charming-looking romantic comedy.
The official trailer for the movie has come online and it’s approved for all audiences. This means it has significantly less butt-sex than is actually in the movie. Make no mistake, Phillip Morris is a very R-rated film but it also looks very funny. How do I know there’s lots of butt-sex? Because that’s what people who have seen the film told me and they even show a little bit of it in this French trailer (but nothing graphic). They also show Carrey and McGregor kissing because they treat their audiences like they’re adults while apparently Americans are all squeamish children who like our homosexuals as long as we don’t see any act that would define them as homosexuals (sorry, but flamboyant attitudes, an eye for fashion and style, and other stereotypical behaviors do not make someone gay; having a physical attraction solely towards a member of the same sex makes someone gay).
I’ve included both trailers after the jump along with the official synopsis. I Love You Phillip Morris opens March 26.
For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis for I Love You Phillip Morris:
I Love You Phillip Morris is the improbable but true story of a spectacularly charismatic conman’s journey from small-town businessman to flamboyant white-collar criminal, who repeatedly finds himself in trouble with the law and on the lam, brilliantly escaping from the Texas prison system on four separate occasions – all in the name of love.
