:D Exactly and it will be better to watch the extra scence in your home. :lol: :D

For those of you losing sleep over the distribution status of "I Love You Phillip Morris", news came through this week to let you rest more easily.

'Variety' is reporting that the film is currently in distribution talks and has been taken off the open market!

One of the highlights of January's Sundance festival, 'I Love you Philip Morris' premiered to rave reviews, so it was a shock to the industry to learn of its difficulties securing a USA distribution deal.

Produced by EuropaCorp the nine-year-old production and distribution company founded by producer-writer-director Luc Besson and Pierre Ange Le Pogam, "I Love You Phillip Morris" opened to lots of buzz at Sundance, but the dark comedy starring Jim Carrey as a gay con man and Ewan McGregor as his cellmate lover, didn't find a U.S. distributor at the festival.

Nearly two months later, CAA and Endeavor are closing in on a U.S. distribution deal. The $18 million pic was financed through foreign presales.

"Our focus is to make the best possible films that we'd want to watch and give our American partners their money's worth," says Besson.

it's a really romantic script and it's a first in that it's not riddled with the cliched gay angst themes.......it's just about love.........regardless of their sex......It deserves a fair crack at the box office......... :)

I've only been reading about this movie off-and-on the past year or so. It sounds interesting.

I have no idea why mainstream America wouldn't want to see a gay Jim Carrey character. In "Me, Myself & Irene" Hank was definitely gay, or bisexual, or at least trysexual or something & it didn't seem to bother anbody.

Yeah but remember: he had Irene shove that thing (euphemism; probably shouldn't say the actual word) up his you-know-what. Wait, I take that back. He stuck it up his own you-know-what according to Irene. And of course, there's nothing wrong with it if it's you but, you gotta admit, that's a little...

Maybe they're not really hetro. Maybe they're bi. Don't get me wrong; consenting adults can do whatever they want with one another--I don't care. But it doesn't sound appealing to me as a hetrosexual male. Not in the least. Sounds very...gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
