Jim Carrey is a great actor. He portrays his characters in movies with hilarity and comicality. Not only his performance is one of the bests, he has also earned millions of dollars only on his movies.
However, fun find it difficult to choose the title of his best performance. He has worked on so many movies with so many known actors and directors; many of his performance worthy of praise.
Two movies catapulted him to stardom: The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
After the two movies were shown to the public, Jim Carrey became a household name when it comes to comedy. It did not stop there. He continued to perform even better, building on his previous success over the other.
This was seen in his performance on Dumb and Dumber. It surely proved to his skeptics that he could deliver consistently. In this movie, he played as Lloyd Christmas, an adorable dumb guy who went after his ideal lady cross country together with his best friend, portrayed by Jeff Daniels.
Luck for him dried up starting with the movie Me, Myself and Irene. Movies that he made failed to reach the stature previously achieved by his movies. The Cable Guy came next. Even though these two movies did not entertain the majority of the fun as much as the early ones, there were some who were entertained.
After the lackluster performance in the box office, he moved to a different role, one that was more serious such as Man on the Moon and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. His performance earned him the respect by the critics in Hollywood.
Today, there are so many titles to go over just to decide which one to watch. It would certainly take you a while. But through the years, you would have one that is close to your jolly heart.
