Burt Wonderstone (Carell) and sidekick Anton (Buscemi) are crowd-pleasing Vegas magicians whose act is threatened by the arrival of upstart street magician Steve Gray (Carrey). The promise of a no-holds-barred duel of bad taste is sadly unfulfilled, with listless performances and a script that lacks laughs.

  • 95 min
  • PG

  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor, Rodrigo Santoro, Antoni Corone, Leslie Mann

Demented comedy based on a true story from writers of 'Bad Santa' Ficarra and Requa about a gay con man, his prison squeeze and his inexhaustible appetite for scheming. By far the best work leads Carrey and McGregor have done for years.

Horton Hears A Who!

  • 3 stars

  • U
  • Directed by: Jimmy Hayward, Steve Martino

  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, Carol Burnett, Seth Rogen, Jesse McCartney, Will Arnett, Dan Fogler, Isla Fisher, Amy Poehler, Selena Gomez, Jaime Pressly

Animators Blue Sky take a break from their ongoing Ice Age franchise to colourfully realise the universe of Dr Seuss' text. Both Carrey and Carrell are allowed full rein for their brand of vocal mugging as co-directors Hayward and Martino skilfully guide Horton towards a comforting moral about size not being all that…

Yes Man

  • 3 stars
  • 2008
  • US
  • 104 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peyton Reed
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Terence Stamp, Zooey Deschanel, Bradley Cooper, John Michael Higgins, Danny Masterson, Maile Flanagan, Rhys Darby

Enjoyable if totally inane comedy based on British writer Danny Wallace's book about a year spent saying 'yes' to everything.

The Number 23

  • US
  • 97 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Joel Schumacher
  • Written by: Fernley Phillips
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Virginia Madsen, Logan Lerman, Danny Huston, Rhona Mitra

After reading a book entitled 'The Number 23' Walter Sparrow (Carrey) becomes obsessed with the mathematical conspiracy theory it details. Initially intriguing, it suffers from a detrimental mix of humour and horror. Carrey is otherwise good, but it doesn't quite add up.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

  • 4 stars

  • US
  • 108 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michel Gondry
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo, Elijah Wood, Tom Wilkinson

A wildly imaginative flight of fantasy based around the gloriously barmy conceit that Carrey's lovelorn loser, Joel Barish, is having the painful memories of his ex-girlfriend surgically removed. It's an outrageously demented ride, but underlying this terrific trip are some serious questions about human relationships.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Silberling
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Liam Aiken, Jude Law

The Grinch

  • 3 stars

  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Taylor Momsen, Jeffrey Tambor

Surprisingly, The Grinch is the first live action feature to be adapted from the work of the world's best-selling children's author, Dr Seuss. And beneath sfx magician Rick Baker's green costume Carrey, – the world's highest paid comedian – wreaks glorious havoc on his cloying sweet neighbours, the Whovians of Who-ville.

When he settles into his batchelor pad, hoping to enjoy an easy life of cable television, architect Steven Kovacs (Broderick) didn't anticipate a cable installer who will go to any lengths to become his friend. Misjudged comedy with the hyperactive Carrey in conniving form, full of spot-the-scene humour.
