    Jim Carrey delivers a hysterical performance in this "fall-down, flat-out, irresistibly deranged movie" (Rolling Stone).

    Rhode Island state trooper Charlie Baileygates (Jim Carrey) proves that nice guys finish first after marrying the prettiest girl in town. But when she leaves him for another man, Charlie develops a split personality and his outrageous opposite, Hank, is born!

    Hank`s got a filthy mouth, a bad attitude and a short fuse. When Charlie falls crazy in love with the beautiful but wanted Irene, he must wage war, with himself, for the confused Irene`s affections.

    Jim Carrey plays Charlie, a rhode island state trooper with a problem, he had a good life, happily married with three kids and a job he loved,but ever since his wife left him for another man (a short black man), and left him to care for the three kids (all the wrong colour!!know what i mean!!), he has hidden away his rage until it manifests into his alter-ego Hank. Hank is a complete mental case!! Getting beat up by picking fights etc, even getting kicked in the nuts, and poor old charlie has to suffer all this too!! Hank even takes it so far as to give charlie a new chin!!! The story revolves around charlies split personality and his special assignment - Irene, hes to escort to another county, and that is where all sorts of crazy things happen, I wont give away too much, suffice to say that this is a very funny film with some classic carrey moments. However there is slightly too much swearing for my liking, so not a film for small kids. The quality of picture is superb, sharp, clear and no fuzzing when dark, sound is also of top quality, I only have a basic stereo Tv, but its still great.

    What about the disc contents?? There is a choice between the theatrical release or the full branching version(extra scenes), deleted scenes, production vignettes(whatever that is!!),The music video `Breakout` by the Foo Fighters, DVD Rom features and more... Its in anamorphic widescreen and in dolby surround sound. To sum up, this is an excellent DVD with lots of extras and my only gripe being the swearing in the movie. I bought it without seeing it before and im happy with my purchase.

    I cannot emphasize enough just how irritating I find Jim Carrey to be. However, this dumb movie contains several hilarious scenes, which are hilarious only because Carrey is the lead. Of course most of the humor`s level is very low and usually sex-related.
    The video transfer is very good. Beats me why anyone needs THX for this kind of a movie, but hey - I`m not complaining.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. While the surrounds are rarely used (only for trains and bikes drive by), the overall sound is enveloping and good.
    The menus are all hilariously animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary (not too interesting), some deleted scenes, a lot of behind the scenes looks and a music video. Unfortunately, there are no outtakes, which would`ve been awesome, knowing just how crazy Jim Carey really is. All in all, while the extras are not that interesting, their amount sure is impressive.
    Bottom line - a rather dumb movie with some hilarious moments. You`re bound to love the cow. :)
