Jim is Brilliant his best performances have been Man on the Moon and Liar Liar. I did not care for the Pet Detective movies because they were moronic. Jim was Andy Kuaffman, it was like Jim was channeling Andy, he should have got an Oscar for this performance.

He seems like he has something to prove and might not be playing with a full deck offscreen. He can be over the top in most of his stuff, but maybe that is what the characters call for. I was impressed with Etern. Sun. Spot. Mind. For the most part, I've enjoyed his films.... just a bit over the top... that's what we've come to expect I suppose. He's okay.

I'll admit the cartoony-ness can get a little old at times, but i could watch dumb and dumber everyday for the rest of my life and still laugh my butt off. i really like his roles where he's a more normal guy. bruce almighty was hilarious, while at the same time limiting jim's tendancy to fall back into a mask-like character.

He started out as funny, cartoony, and whimsical but now I just find him annoying. I applaud him for getting where he is and the he is Canadian...that's awesome.

In my humble opinion, the cardinal sin for a lead actor to commit is to give a half-arsed performance. This subconsciously effects all the other actors and drags the whole performance down into a turgid swamp of blandness. However, this cardinal sin is something Carrey could never be accused of. Carrey lends an infectious and, some would say, slightly insane, energy to all his movies. This pulsating, crazed energy, far from being a hindrance, is entirely apt for the parts he plays. Who else could play his role in a film like Liar Liar where Carrey plays, to perfection, the part of a pathological liar driven insane by a truth-inducing curse? Who else could play his part in The Cable Guy, where Carrey ably portrays a TV-reared psychopath whose knowledge of life was garnered by watching exaggerated caricatures of it? Who else could be Ace Ventura, a man who's wild and animalistic in his ways because he relates better to beasts than humans? Who else could be Jim Carrey? For many, overacting is an unfortunate affliction; for Carey, it's an art form.

I used to think that Jim was just an occasionally funny ok-ish actor but since I saw Eternal Sunshine... I've really grown to like him. It was a brillant performance and I hope he makes more movies like this.

This guy is a mystery to me. I guess you really have to understand his humor to like him. I don't like his humor at all. He is pretty much the same kind of person in every movie, same emotions, same facial expressions...everything. And it's so sad. He was in some promising movies (Truman Show, Bruce Almighty etc)and I enjoyed everything in the movie but him. I don't like him as an actor or as a person. He is way too much in love with himself.

Jim is my all time favourite comedian/actor. Not y favourite actor in general, but comedy wise,he's got the title. I just saw A Series of Unfortunate Events, and while it wasn't his best performance, it was still hilarious. Probaly my favourite movie of his would be The Grinch, and I know it's corny, but I still laugh every time!

Very talented and, to me at least, funny guy, but one of those comedians that you either really like or really don't. It's hard to imagine anyone has ambivalent feelings about him. To me, he has the rare ability to make films that, on their own, are quite unfunny (like Ace Ventura) funny.

Enormously talented and extremely funny. When he does a great movie - Like Bruce Almighty, he shines. A really nutty guy ( like Robin Williams) who, when he plays to his strengths, is one of the best around.

Goes over the top in the serious films. He can be a serious actor but is trying a little to hard and the films or no very good to start with. What do I know? I like the Cable Guy. If you watch it, watch it as an insane guy and not a comedy. Then it is ok.

Jim is very funny. Dumb and Dumber being one of his best movies. I Dont think he should make any more drama type movies though. He is a good actor but he is a better comedian

I can't take large doses of him. He starts to get on my nerves quickly.

He's a great actor no denying it and is still funny but he seriously should do another Ace Ventura movie before he get's too old, I miss the totally crazy Jim Carrey movies he did before. He shouldn't just do dramatic roles.
