Af­ter prov­ing his chops as a se­ri­ous ac­tor in TheTru­man

Show and Manon­theMoon, Jim Car­rey (above) re­turned to the one-man-freak­show ethic that orig­i­nally cat­a­pulted him to su­per­star­dom. Un­der the di­rec­tion of the Far­relly broth­ers, Car­rey plays Char­lie, an overly po­lite and much­mocked 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. ★★
