Top 10 Jim Carrey Movies

10. Bruce Almighty

I write these lists from 1 to 10, so I've written, "only Jim Carrey could have played this part," a bunch of times now, and this one really proves my point...why? Because they made a sequel to this movie with the main actor being Steve Carell (his c0-star in this one) instead of Jim Carrey himself and lo and behold, the gross doesn't even pass the budget of Evan Almighty, making it a huge flop at the box office. Bruce Almighty however, with a budget half the size of Evan Almighty's made over $400 Million and was one of Jim Carrey's biggest successes at the Box Office. Carrey plays a newscaster who's constantly getting the short end of the stick and when one day he curses God and blames him for all of his problems, God comes down to Earth to give Bruce all of his powers for a short time to teach him a lesson about responsibility. Carrey is apprehensively and awkwardly funny as we see him adjusting to his new career as the creator of the universe. It was a great come back after the Grinch, which I don't hate, but had much bigger expectations than what was produced.

9. Liar Liar

When a successful lawyer who is about to make partner at his firm, doesn't attend his son's birthday, the son wishes that for one day only, his father cannot tell a lie. Thus begins the worst day of Fletcher Reede's life. A transformation we could only dream of witnessing, this rotten, lying lawyer is forced to tell the truth during the most important trial of his career is played by one of the only actors is internally conflicted enough to get it right. Again, Nobody else could play the part.

8. Yes Man

Yes, yes, yes, I did include Yes Man in the top 10. After taking a small hiatus from comedy with Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind, and the terrible Number 23, Jim Carry returns in a somewhat similar role to Liar Liar with Yes Man. In Liar Liar (above) Jim Carrey could not tell a lie. In Yes Man, he plays a boring and lonely banker (...didn't he play one in the Mask???) who takes an oath at a seminar pledging he will only say YES to opportunities and if he breaks that oath, one bad thing after another will begin to happen. Jim Carrey plunges into the role, first as a loner type like the one he played in a spotless mind who is dramatically transformed by his YES answers into a man who he finally loves and respects, someone who is open to the possibilities of life.

7. Batman Forever

You know those movies you liked when you were a kid and now have no idea why? For me this is one of them. I used to watch Batman Forever over and over like a crazed wombat and now when I watch it, it plays just like I remember but like it should...to a kid. It's full of fart and sex jokes that appeal to 10 year old boys. It makes no logical sense and it's certainly not based in reality....which is why now, I love it even more. It made me laugh then, so I appreciably laugh with my former self now. I think I've been judging the older batman movies which were very comic book like against the newer ones directed by Christopher Nolan which are based in reality, and that's just not fair. Anyway! Back to Carrey. Jim Carrey plays the riddler and again, this was an incredible casting choice. He's over the top in the greatest way. The movie tracks Batman, now a few villains down in Gotham City but still chasing a man in a mask. His 2 newest criminals are a district attorney turned mass murderer named Two Face and an experimental scientist who designs a 3D TV that while giving his viewers a show they'll never forget, he is able to drain their knowledge into his brain making him the smartest man in the world and no other actor could play psychopathic, manic genius as well as the rubber face himself.

6. The Mask

From a low $23 Million to almost $400 Million, The Mask easily makes Jim Carrey a superstar in 1994. Stanley Ipkiss is a lonely, unlucky banker who dreams of gorgeous women and lots of money. One extremely unlucky day, everything goes wrong and to top it all off, his car breaks down in the middle of a bridge. Thinking there is a man out in the water, drowning, he dives on in to discover just a pile of garbage and a small green wooden mask. When he puts the mask on, he comes the man of his dreams...that is, the man who in his dreams, he would be... He's confident, funny, charming and he takes what he likes. The complete opposite of himself. Jim Carrey knocks this one out of the park as he plays two distinctly different characters with full use of his apparatus.
