|Me, Myself & Irene Description
In the Farrelly Brothers' ME, MYSELF & IRENE, Jim Carrey plays
Charlie Baileygates, a Rhode Island State Trooper who develops a
split personality disorder after his wife leaves him for an
African-American midget genius. Due to years of denial and
repression while raising triplet sons left behind by his wife and
her lover, Charlie finally gets fed up with people taking advantage
of his meek nature and snaps, taking on a lewd, aggressive second
personality named Hank. Soon afterwards, Charlie is assigned by the
police department to protect a woman named Irene (Renée Zellweger),
who's being followed by some shady characters that want her dead. As
the pair attempt to outwit their pursuers, the kind-hearted Charlie
begins to fall for Irene, while battling his sleazy alter ego, Hank.
Back in full comedy mode after his more dramatic roles in THE TRUMAN
SHOW and MAN ON THE MOON, Carrey once again displays his outlandish
brand of physical humor. As with any Farrelly Brothers film, there
are plenty of grossly funny yet good-natured moments. (In fact,
Charlie's loving relationship with his three brilliant
half-African-American sons is one of the film's best and funniest
subplots.) Above all, it is the way that Carrey juggles the extreme
personalities of Charlie and Hank--basically waging war against
himself--that proves why he is one of Hollywood's best comedic
"...A comedy smash....You won't find anything
"...[Extends] the string of heartfelt,
stomach-turning comedies that began with KINGPIN....[Carrey
performs] the most amazing one-man wrestling match since Steve
Martin [in ALL OF ME]..."
"...Zellweger [is] amiable....Nobody does
Jekyll/Hyde better than [Carrey]..."
Theatrical release: June 23, 2000.
The film was shot on location in Rhode Island and Vermont.
Jim Carrey, known for his on-set willingness to perform any
ridiculous gag, was thoroughly embarrassed during the film's
breast-feeding shot and repeatedly apologized to the actress during
the shooting of the scene.
ME, MYSELF & IRENE was actually written by Peter Farrelly before
DUMB & DUMBER, the Farrelly Brothers' first feature film.
"...A hell-raising piece of comedy heaven....Carrey
and the triplets are more than funny; they are fall-down, flat-out
"...The good cop/bad cop brain-split plays as
great comedy material for Jim Carrey..."
