Carrey plays a happily married police officer who has a life changing experience after a dramatic car accident.
He admits he’s gay and decides to live life to the fullest. Carrey’s new found extravagant lifestyle includes being a con artist and he soon winds up in a penitentiary where he meets fellow inmate Phillip Morris, played by Ewan McGregor.
Morris becomes the object of Carrey’s affection and soon Carrey embarks on a plan to free Morris from jail so the two can build a perfect life together.

See for yourself this Friday when I Love You Phillip Morris opens in theaters.
