Storyline

Charlie is a Rhode Island state trooper with a multiple personalities. He is otherwise mild-mannered and non confrontational until somebody or something pushes him a little too far. That's when his maniacal alter-ego, Hank, takes over. Charlie is assigned on a routine mission to return alleged fugitive Irene back to upstate New York, but they wind up on the run from corrupt police officers. And their escape would be a lot simpler on everybody involved if Hank didn't keep stepping in at the most inopportune times.... Written by <jgp3553@excite.com>

Trivia

In the scene where Jim Carrey is fighting with himself, Hank grabs Charlie's finger and says "Beg me or I'll break it off." Charlie's reply of "I beg I die" is taken from the movie Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead (1995) ", with Jim Carrey even imitating the tone of Andy Garcia's voice. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the film, we see Irene and her ex-boss on a deteriorated wooden bridge. The gaps in the bridge's planking are spanned by two parallel boards. However, moments later when Charlie crosses the same bridge, the gaps are spanned only by single planks. See more »

Quotes

Hank Evans: Holy Jesus in heaven! it's a giant Q-tip.
Irene P. Waters: Hank!
Hank Evans: What? I'm jokin' with the guy. Bringin' a little sunshine into his life. Careful, you'll peel.

hilarious, a laugh riot
6 November 2006 | by kittiwake-1See all my reviews

OK, Jim Carrey fans, this is Jim doing some of his very best work. I don't think anyone else could have pulled off playing Charlie Baileygates. I was disappointed in Renee Zellweger's performance, but I'm not really a big fan of hers. (And, for the record, I'm also not too fond of Carrey's over-the-top style, but I pick and choose to make sure I see him in roles I would like.) The Farrelly brothers, known for their irreverent comedy, made this movie enjoyable and hilarious. I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone. Just expect twists and turns that leave you laughing. This movie is not for the faint-hearted, and it's not for kids. (If you've never seen a Farrelly movie, you'll need to know this!) This is not laden with "Oscar-quality" performances at all, but just something to watch when you want to laugh and not think. -- Movies like this are good, if that is what you're looking for. The plot was great, and the casting (overall) was incredible. I can't get over Charlie's family. You'll see! I find them the most fun of all. Watch it with good friends who love to laugh -- I think we can all find something like Charlie in all of us.
