    A labored and sour comedy.
  2. 38
    At some point the foul language, lascivious sight gags, references to sex toys, violence against animals and cruelty toward children simply ceases to be funny.

    Leaving the theater, I couldn't quell those waves of disappointment: It just should have been funnier.
  4. As the Farrellys have proved, tastelessness can be made palatable, but they've misfired with Me, Myself & Irene.

    This is a farfetched premise, and the movie pays a price for it.
  6. 30
    A kind of idealist fantasy that seems almost hamstrung by its plot.

    It's sporadically funny but often unfunny, the latter worse than not being funny enough.
  8. 10
    If you choose to see this puerile tripe, check your dignity at the door.
  9. It's by far the worst comedy either he (Carrey) or the Farrelly Brothers have ever made.

    Seldom any laughs, even from Jim Carrey, who can only make a formulaic approach in all his physical comedy roles from 'Ace Ventura'. TheSeldom any laughs, even from Jim Carrey, who can only make a formulaic approach in all his physical comedy roles from 'Ace Ventura'. The acting is atrocious, as is the dialogue, and the story is just plainly not funny, How is this supposed to be funny, to laugh at a guy whose life is that petty and depressing and cruel is going beyond comedy and into insolence.
