    • Synopsis
    • The improbable real-life story of a charismatic conman's journey from
      small-town businessman to flamboyant white-collar criminal, starring
      Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor.
      Steven Russell (Jim Carrey - The Grinch) is happily married to Debbie
      (Leslie Mann - The 40-Year-Old Virgin), and a member of the local
      police force when a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment
      of his life. Steven realizes he’s gay and decides to live life to the fullest
      - even if it means breaking the law. Steven's new, extravagant lifestyle
      involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State
      Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, soft-spoken Phillip Morris (Ewan
      McGregor). His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the
      perfect life together prompts Steven to attempt – and often succeed
      at – one impossible con after another.
      Adapted from the true story told by crime reporter Steve McVicker in
      his book of the same title, I Love You Phillip Morris is an oddball tale of
      what can happen when the legal system, a daredevil spirit, and
      undying love collide.
