Typical Farrelly Brothers Movie, With Raunchy and Crude Humor - Not For Kids

I'm a huge fan of Jim Carrey, and I typically love his movies. However, this is probably one of his more disappointing roles. I can't say that I absolutely hate this movie, and I did laugh a lot throughout. But this movie certainly is not for kids. It has A LOT of adult content and foul language, and sexual jokes are rampant throughout the movie. Pretty standard for a Farrelly Brothers movie. The schizophrenia diagnosis, and changing back and forth between Hank and Charlie, is the main conflict of the movie. I can't say that there is absolutely no hero theme that comes through in the movie - Charlie does overcome his struggle with his personality disorder in the end, and is a stronger man because of it. But the crude humor and overly sexual themes during the course of the movie will probably turn off a lot of people who attempt to watch. If you love Jim Carrey and the Farrelly Brothers, you'll enjoy this movie. If you don't like sexually explicit jokes, crude or raunchy movies, this one isn't for you, and don't let your kids watch, either.

An outdated movie with no haha moments

Plenty of sexual assault comedy in this out-of-touch movie. First thing the was outright disgusting is Jim Carey latching onto a lactating mother’s breast in public. How is this scene suppose to be funny? How is it ok? Then there’s all the unwanted touching that Irene (Renee Zelleweger) endures through this movie. Carey grabs her breast and constantly sexually harasses/assaults her. You know, all the things that we don’t want our daughters and wives to ever experience. Schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder are considered jokes in this movie. I normally like Jim Carey, but this was pure trash. You want ridiculous and funny then watch “I Think you Should Leave.” Me Myself and Irene? Trash. Don't waste your money. Don’t watch it. It’s not cringe, it’s just outright yuck.
