Overview

Jim Carrey returned to comedic form in this from-the-hip comedy, which arrives on DVD courtesy of 20th Century Fox. The picture, presented in a 1.85:1 widescreen format, is fantastic; colors are bright and clear, especially in the outdoor sequences. The sound is a crisp Dolby 5.1 presentation. As for extras, this DVD does not disappoint. There's a commentary from Bobby and Peter Farrelly, a host of "making of" featurettes, and a video for the Foo Fighters' video "Breakout." However, the real treat for fans of the movie is the bevy of deleted scenes. Offered with or without a director's commentary, these scenes help to expand certain plot threads and add additional humor to others. Much as they did with their X-Men DVD, Fox offers this film in an "extended branching version," which allows the deleted scenes to be inserted into the movie. A logo pops up to let the viewer know when a deleted scene is playing. This feature also allows viewers to jump to behind-the-scenes footage from the movie for certain sequences. Regardless of what one thinks of Carrey or the gross-out style of the Farrelly brothers, Me, Myself & Irene is worth a look on DVD. It's a great example of what the technology can do, and why it's fast becoming the preferred medium in home entertainment.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Daniel Weizmann
From the brothers Bobby and Peter Farrelly -- creators of Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary -- comes more silliness that takes the old good cop/bad cop concept to Jekyll-and-Hyde extremes. Jim Carrey is Charlie, a hilariously naive, nice-guy cop who develops an alternate personality to vent his rage: the ruthless tough guy Hank. Renee Zellweger is Irene, a girl in some trouble with the law and the mob. When Charlie's medication is misplaced, both he and Hank fall for Irene, and at this point her real trouble begins. While not as romantically engaging as Something About Mary - the gross-out factor is just as high, with castration gags, trash-talkin’ triplets (the result of an affair Charlie’s wife had with a black dwarf) , and more. The special-edition wide-screen DVD features commentary by the Farrelly brothers, deleted scenes, the Foo Fighters video "Breakout," trailers, TV spots, and a special behind-the-scenes featurette.
