    I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Batman Forever no matter how cheesy it might seem on a rewatch.

    I recently watched Sonic and Carrey is definitely the highlight of the movie.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Jim Carrey Movies~!

    Honestly, Batman Forever really isn't a bad movie. It's just such a radical shift in tone from the first two that it instantly pales in comparison. Taking it at face value, it's a fairly fun romp with a lot of homage paid to not only the 60's era television show, but the comics as well. I've also felt that Kilmer made for a very good Bruce Wayne, though his Batman leaves a little to be desired.

    Batman & Robin on the other hand....

    Disagree

    I was obsessed with this film as a kid, enough for the U2 song to be my first bought cassette ever (#old).

    I gave it a view a couple years ago hoping for a nostalgia kick, before realising nope, I was very easily pleased as a child.

    Thanks for backing me up, pal.

    Honestly a lot of Jim's early 90's schtick doesn't land for me a lot these days so my list is counter-culture in more ways than one. Forever is the first instance of that, where his wackiness really lent itself to an over-the-top comic book adventure and Batman Forever really is a ton of fun without being overtly terrible like its successor. It's a blast of a movie, and Kiss From a Rose is an all-time banger.

    I watched Sonic recently and honestly didn't care much for it at all, and while there's no denying it's a classic Jim Carrey turn, it also felt way too much like an Ace Ventura heel turn and not an actual Robotnik performance. The movie as a whole didn't really feel like a Sonic movie and more like a generic buddy adventure with Sonic lazily spray painted on. Reasonably fun family entertainment otherwise. On the other hand, I Love You Phillip Morris is a nice Carrey deep cut that was in contention for my five spot as well so I'm glad to see it show up.

    Honestly, I love you Phillip Morris is really great. I just don’t love it more than the movies I voted for. Same goes for Ewan though, they were both great.

    Batman Forever is solid IMO. It’s so stupid and cheesy, and I like it a lot. I’ll never forget watching it when it first came out as a kid.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Jim Carrey Movies~!

    Let's do the next batch right away...

    19. - How The Grinch Stole Christmas - 20 points (Man #4)



    16T. - Kick-Ass 2 - 30 points (OMB #4, Man #5)



    16T. - The Cable Guy - 30 points (Silk #4, Jimmy King #5)



    16T. - Once Bitten - 30 points (Wang Chung #3)


    The Cable Guy just barely made the countdown with the last two lists I got. I'm happy it became some love. ...also I'm pretty surprised at the low turnout for How The Grinch Stole Christmas

    The Cable Guy just missed being my number 5 above all the others I left out of my voting. It’s literally a f***ing gem. The tone and feel is all over the place. As a kid I didn’t understand or appreciate it. As an adult, I think it’s great.

    The Grinch was fine for what it was.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Jim Carrey Movies~!

    Kick Ass 2 not only sucked, but even if it didn't I couldn't vote for it considering how badly Carrey threw it under the bus

    Grinch is fun, but I actually prefer the recent Illumination one

    Like BT, I didn’t get Cable Guy as a kid, I just watched it because it had Jim Carrey and I loved him in anything as a kid. As an adult however, I get it. Cable Guy is so good and Jim Carrey is excellent in it, and it has a great soundtrack too.

    Cable Guy was my final cut. Glad to see two fine and wonderful folks vote for it.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Jim Carrey Movies~!

    The Grinch, and to a greater extent The Cat in the Hat, are a warning against mankind's infinite hubris; frightening visual nightmares that must be stopped at all costs. Carrey's reasonably funny in it though, so it is at least several measures better than the latter atrocity.

    I never saw Kick-Ass 2 because I didn't like the first one, which people generally liked, and everyone said the second was rubbish so I figured I'd best skip it. Carrey's character looked like a nice change of pace for him though.

    Speaking of changes of pace, The Cable Guy rules. It's, y'know, pretty weird, but Carrey channeling his frantic energy into a nutty villain type worked much better here than it did in Sonic, for example. It's hard not to develop an absolute revulsion for him as the film progresses, and yet still be enamored by his performance as he gets more and more wild. Really underrated flick and performance and I'm glad Jimmy King backed me on it.

    I haven't seen the Cable Guy since I was a kid and I hated it. Then again I felt the same way about Liar Liar and that was hilarious when I revisited it as an adult. It sounds like the Cable Guy might be the same.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Jim Carrey Movies~!

    I only watched Yes Man once upon release and thought it felt like a pretty vanilla attempt to capture some of the magic of his earlier hits, particularly Liar Liar. I wasn't particularly impressed but maybe I should give it another go sometime.

    As the rest of this section goes the only one I've seen is Ace and I'm pretty shocked to see it this low. I always figured it to be one of the faves of the early wacky Jim movies, and even though I personally think it hasn't aged super great, it still has some funny bits. Would be very shocked to see the much inferior sequel place higher so I'm just gonna assume it didn't make the grade.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Jim Carrey Movies~!

    Of the big three he did in 1994, Ace was the one as a kid I liked the least. Now granted I’ve rewatched it as an adult, and I like some parts of it. But I just was never a big fan.

    I’ve only ever seen The Majestic once. I remember thinking it was ok. It’s a movie I’d be willing to rewatch.

    Yes Man definitely is a cheap call back to some of his previous work. It was playing it safe. But something about it just made me instantly like it. The positive vibe of don’t hold yourself back and make life what you want it. Oh, and the cheesy romantic sub plot.

    Aaaaaaaand here it comes! Top Ten time!

    9T. - Dumb & Dumber - 90 points (Jimmy King #1, Wolf Beast #2)



    9T. - Me, Myself & Irene - 90 points (Wolf Beast #1, Wang Chung #2)

    I never cared much for the Ace Ventura movies... but it is interesting to see the sequel above the first movie. ...was there ever a Fave Five Sequels?

    Re: WC's Fave Five Jim Carrey Movies~!

    There has never been a Fave Five sequels, and, oddly, it isn't even on the list of potential threads. Perhaps people feel they've already voted for The Empire Strikes Back and The Godfather Part II enough?

    Dumb and Dumber is fairly fun, but was never really in consideration for my list. I tried to focus on more of Carrey's lesser known roles, hence my lone vote for The Majestic. I felt that was an excellent film in its own right, and easily one of my favourite Carrey performances.

    All 3 fall into that category of his films were I last saw them a good 10/15 years ago. Liked them then, but can't justify voting for them.

    As for Yes Man, it's a nice, feel good film. I had to see it twice though as the first time I saw it I was going through some stuff and found it so positive it made me more pissed off Also love the fact a Danny Wallace book ended up as a major Hollywood film
