Storyline

Charlie Baileygates (Jim Carrey) is a Rhode Island state trooper with multiple personalities. He is otherwise mild-mannered and non-confrontational until somebody or something pushes him a little too far. That's when his maniacal alter-ego, Hank, takes over. Charlie is assigned on a routine mission to return alleged fugitive Irene Waters (Renée Zellweger) back to upstate New York, but they wind up on the run from corrupt Police Officers. And their escape would be a lot simpler on everybody involved if Hank didn't keep stepping in at the most inopportune times. Written by <jgp3553@excite.com>

Just notice that in the clip at the very, very end of the movie, when Whitey says he thinks he's found the missing thumb, he ducks under without the hose in his mouth. But in the water, it's in. Then when he comes back out, it's out again. See more »

Alternate Versions

In a special edition release to home video in 2001, there were seven deleted scenes shown after the movie. The scenes were as follows:

  • Charlie and Irene meet up with the owner of the cow they had tried to kill;
  • while Irene is being interrogated, Charlie goes into his hotel room and takes out a watermelon and a photo of Irene and gets an idea; soon before Charlie and Irene leave the hotel room, a watermelon with a hole in it rolls out from under the bed;
  • a comical sex scene;
  • in the car, Irene hangs a mirror on the rear-view mirror, the sun shines through it and onto Whitey's hat, causing it to catch fire. They throw it into the back of the handicapped guy's car;
  • an extended 'butt chin' scene;

Jim Carrey and the Farrely doing what they do best.
3 July 2000 | by bat-5See all my reviews

There is probably no other movie coming out this summer that will produce more from the gut laughs than Me, Myself & Irene. Sure it's crude, sure it's vulgar and juvenile at times, but sometimes we just have to take ourselves back to when we were younger and used to laugh at things that we would otherwise find rather disgusting. The main treat is to watch Carrey transform from the sweet natured Charlie to the vulgar, Dirty Harry sounding Hank. Hank does things that not many people would even dream of, and it's a kick to see him get away with some of them. Equally funny are Charlie's three sons, who are highly intelligent, love their dad and use a certain phrase to great effect. Some may find this movie offensive and occasionally funny at times, but I found it enjoyable from beginning to end. A good way to blow off steam from a bad day.
