And here is the first review we can find on rottentomatoes, it's Fresh. Even better, the guy gave this Fun movie nothing less then 'A'.

Found this review in a student newspaper online -- very positive:

"It contains a first-rate performance by Carrey, reestablishing him as the premier physical comedian in recent memory'

I haven't seen the movie, so I don't know it's true, but the most reviews are bad. As in, very bad. :( Lots of complaining about the extremely bad cutting also.

here is the review from the San Franscico Chronicle.....they gave it a medicore score and that is saying something........b/c they are some of the toughest critics that are being printed on newspaper.

I am a huge Carrey fan and I saw the movie yesterday here in Canada opening night. The movie was sooo funny, like Liar Liar funny.
I was laughing so hard in my seat, people were looking at me. LOL The movie was awesome! I couldn't stop quoting the movie after, also I felt like i needed to rob someone..lol just kidding
Hope everyone enjoys the movie just as much as I did.

Welcome to JCO Carrey_fan81!

i think so of us were disappointed about some parts of the movie b/c we are so intent on watching him on TV when he gives an appearence.....so we end up seeing a scene or two over and over to the point it isn't that funny anymore.

Ebert and Roeper both gave it a thumbs down and said it is a lazy and uninspired remake. They even went as far to say that it is the worst movie of the year. :(
