Not necessarily 2 hours of ROTFL but fairly funny. I didn’t know if was a remake – I’m going to make a point to see the original sometime this summer.
The one thing I was impressed with is how unannoying Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni were. They’re not necessarily my #1 sets of actors to go see in movies. I really think that Jim Carrey has been so hyped up in the last 5-7 years that people are willing to over look some of the crap he’s put out there. I think the key in his being okay in this movie was that it wasn’t constant slapstick on his part. There was slapstick, it was just done is good amounts of moderation. Maybe he needs to stick to remakes!
3 out of 5 stars
