Jennie Yabroff Newsweek The movie wants us to overlook its implausibility by insisting that it's all true. We believe it, we just don't care. Feb 8, 2018 Full Review Roger Moore Tribune News Service Despite its title, it has nothing to do with cigarettes. But its star, as he once famously said on screen, is absolutely "smokin'." Jan 16, 2013 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star This is the most interesting role Carrey has had in a long while. Rated: 3/4 Mar 4, 2011 Full Review Diego Batlle Otroscines.com With a solid script and daring performances, the film is enjoyable and will inevitably become a cult classic in spite of some of its uneven gags. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 2, 2022 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Observed at a distance you cannot deny the cruel grace of this ridiculous tragic-comedy. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 10, 2022 Full Review Stuart McGurk NME (New Musical Express) A comedy that's all the funnier for the laughs carrying weight, a drama that's all the slicker for having a lighter side, a bit of a mess but a really fun mess...

Liquid A Surprisingly good. Great true story. Jim Carrey is amazing, so much range in his ability as an actor. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Dillan T Hilarious and a comedy that can be re-watched. The director is very talented, can't believe the man behind fifth element made this crack up comedy! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Paul S A MUST ! Although a lot of what happens wouldn't make sense nowadays because of advancements in technology, it is still very entertaining. And the fact that it's based on a true story is absolutely mind blowing ! So good ! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review Timothy D This film knows no limits and is outright insanity. Carrey and McGregor are voracious in their portrayals, filling I Love You, Phillip Morris with surprising heart. Almost everything in this film is unexpected, and it all packs a punch. It's hilarious. However, this movie is so bombastic that landing on a serious note is tricky and leaves you with a hangover. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/28/23 Full Review Brett C I'm gay and found the cliche typically creepy. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/05/23 Full Review Giorgio S This was really good and entertaining. The setpieces were great and the humor was really good. The plottwists are unpredictable even if this is based onna true story. Mcgregor and Carrey are a really good couple togrther. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Read all reviews
