ELEVEN, Sun­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2000)

Af­ter prov­ing his chops as a se­ri­ous ac­tor in The Tru­man Show and Man on the Moon, Jim Car­rey ( pic­tured) re­turned to the one- man­f­reak­show ethic that orig­i­nally cat­a­pulted him to su­per­star­dom. Un­der the di­rec­tion of the Far­relly brothers, Car­rey plays Char­lie, an overly po­lite and much- mocked high­way pa­trol­man with a Jekyll- and- Hyde per­son­al­ity, whose seem­ingly sim­ple task of es­cort­ing a fugi­tive ( Renée Zell­weger) cross- coun­try be­comes fraught with dan­ger. Car­rey’s loose- ca­boose an­tics take cen­tre stage with lit­tle re­gard for taste and the cav­al­cade of mut­ter­ings and crass sit­u­a­tions should only ap­peal to the ter­mi­nally ju­ve­nile.
