When I first saw Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, I hated him because he physically resembled a guy who stole my girlfriend from me back in early 1994.  (When I was 20 years old)
After I got over it, I came to like Carrey's work.

Most recently, I watched The Number 23 which was universally panned by critics but liked by me.
Come on!  It wasn't that bad!

How about you?
What's your favorite Jim Carrey movie?
Do you like him in more serious roles?
Or do you prefer him in his more manic comedy parts?

You may vote for up to two of his films.

Well my overall favorite Jim Carrey movie is the Truman Show.  I though it to be a very good film and one of his best.  I've seen The Mask before but I haven't seen that film in about 10 to 12 years.

I loved Dumb and Dumber and The Cable Guy. 

Most people panned both, but Cable Guy was so dark it was hilarious.  Dumb and Dumber was kind of a departure at the time, I guess you could say.  I know a few people who loved Mask and Ace, and hated Dumb and Dumber.

He doesn't need to talk out of his ass to be funny.

I think the underrated MAN ON THE MOON and THE TRUMAN SHOW are his best films to date so they got my votes here. Still I have to admit to enjoying most of his comedies too.

Why did you even consider putting Once Bitten in there.  That movie was Terrible!  Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and The Mask

I haven't seen every one of his movies, but I have seen quite a few.  It's hard for me to choose, although I did pick Liar, Liar and Batman Forever.

Really looking forward to seeing Horton Hears A Who.  I used to love that story when I was a kid.

Seriously, though, he's an OK actor, I've just never liked any of his films (that I've seen).

The italics indicate that it is Jim Carrey's movies I don't like, not Jim Carrey.

My kids used to drag me to his movies.  Now I pay my oldest daughter twenty bucks to take the other two kids to the movies.  That's what I think of Jim Carrey.

I chose "Liar, Liar" and "Bruce Almighty", to me they are his best films, but I must add that for me watching a Jim Carrey film is sort of like paying some one to whip me. Most of the time he's just painful for me to watch.

I was one of few who thought Ace Ventura When Nature Calls...this is by far one of the funniest scenes in movie history...

He was in a good movie?  When?

I haven't seen much of Jim Carrey and avoided him like the plague after Batman Forever.  I guess I liked him the best in Dumb and Dumber.
