MPAA Rating:
PG-13 for sex related humor and language.

Jim Carrey is quite the clown. I don't think anyone else could pull off this material with quite the conviction. The plot is thin enough that the ludicrous behavior doesn't seem all that out of place. Cary Elwes is extremely funny dressed up to match Carrey in hair, facial expressions, and mannerisms. It's certainly more striking than the same acting tricks in Face/Off. Anyway, the laughs are outstanding once you get into Carrey mode.
