Jim Carrey's 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes

Despite being one of the biggest movie stars in the world with countless box office hits, Jim Carrey is a pretty divisive actor. Some fans appreciate his knack for rubbery expressive comedy, but others criticize this performing style as overacting.

While he was once possibly the most bankable star in the world, his status has dropped in the past few years and he hasn’t really starred in a major hit since 2008’s Yes Man. Still, he’s left behind a very impressive body of work and there’s every chance his star could rise again. So, here are Jim Carrey’s 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes.

Murder Mystery Trailer Reunites Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston on Netflix

Netflix has released the first trailer for Murder Mystery. This is the latest collaboration between the streaming service and former Saturday Night Live cast member Adam Sandler. This time around, he's reuniting with his Just Go With It co-star Jennifer Aniston, along with a pretty impressive ensemble for, as the title implies, a classic whodunit tale set in the modern era. But, you know, set against the backdrop of a typical Sandler movie, for better or for worse.

Things start off with some gags involving low-hanging fruit, as one might expect, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston doing their best not to get into an argument on a flight. Then Aniston's character comes across a rather dashing, mysterious gentleman in first class. This leads them to a much more, interesting, high-class adventure than they had previously planned. Until things go wrong because, as the title makes explicitly clear, someone gets murdered.

Why Bradley Cooper Begged J.J. Abrams' to Write Him Out of Alias at the Start of His Career

Why Bradley Cooper Begged J.J. Abrams' to Write Him Out of Alias at the Start of His Career
Long before Bradley Cooper received rave reviews for his directorial debut A Star Is Born, the actor starred in the popular series Alias.

Cooper, 44, starred as Will Tippin, a journalist and friend of Jennifer Garner‘s Sydney Bristow. The actor admitted in a 2013 interview with GQ that as excited as he was for the opportunity, he gradually grew frustrated as his role began to shrink over seasons.

“I would only work three days a week,” he explained at the time. “And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, ‘Ugh.’ And then, the next thing you know,

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Director Peyton Reed Explains How ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Shaped His Sequel’s Storyline

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Director Peyton Reed Explains How ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Shaped His Sequel’s Storyline
[Editor’s note: This article contains light spoilers for “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”]

For his first sequel, director Peyton Reed had to go big. Following his inaugural foray into both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the wider world of blockbuster moviemaking with 2015’s “Ant-Man,” Reed signed on to direct the inevitable “Ant-Man” sequel just three months after the first Paul Rudd-starring superhero film hit theaters.

That doesn’t mean the “Yes Man” and “Down With Love” director was entirely ready for the kind of serialized filmmaking the McU entails. “I have really specific ideas of what I like in sequels and what I dislike in sequels,” he recently told IndieWire. However, he found that the interconnected nature of the billion-dollar franchise actually aided in his vision for what would become “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Blu-ray Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Zendaya | Written by Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Jon Watts, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers | Directed by Jon Watts

Obviously, “Homecoming” has multiple meanings, not least of which is Spider-Man’s switch to the cool side of the Marvel fence, outside of Sony’s control. Makes sense. One could argue that the very DNA of the modern Marvel movie machine is based on what made Sam Raimi’s first two movies so successful: larger-than-life characters tackling real-world themes, with a lightness of touch that didn’t undermine the gravity of the drama. It’s a difficult balancing act; one which Marc Webb’s aborted reboot largely failed to replicate.

Today, Marvel is a blockbuster production line of Toyota-like efficiency, and part of its success lies in squeezing the authorship out of its directors. It was too much for Edgar Wright,

Dora the Explorer Live-Action Movie Is Happening with Producer Michael Bay
After languishing in development for the past two years, Paramount is finally moving forward with its Dora the Explorer adaptation, bringing on writer Nick Stoller to write the script. This Dora the Explorer live-action movie was first put into development exactly two years ago, when the studio brought on Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) to write the screenplay. There has been no movement on the project since then, but now it seems that the studio is moving forward with a new writer working on the script, and the studio eyeing a 2019 release date, with Michael Bay producing alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

The project will be developed under the new Paramount Players division of the studio, which is devoted to producing films based on properties that fall under the banner of Paramount's parent corporation, Viacom, which include Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and Bet. Brian Robbins,

Baby Driver review

Edgar Wright turns his hand to a hip, 70s style thriller with Baby Driver. We take a closer look...

It’s one of the drawbacks as life as a filmmaker: you can sink months or even years of your life into a screenplay that will never be sold or a movie project that will never go into production. Such was the fate of Ant-Man, director Edgar Wright’s take on the Marvel superhero; Wright departed the project in 2014, eight years after he began working on it with co-writer Joe Cornish. The film was finally brought to the screen by Yes Man director Peyton Reed; like David Cronenberg’s Total Recall or Guillermo del Toro’s The Hobbit, Wright’s Ant-Man became one of cinema’s what-might-have-beens.

Jim Carrey to face trial over death of former girlfriend by Jennie Kermode - 2017-06-01 17:57:02

Jim Carrey Photo: Kevin1230

Yes Man star Jim Carrey has been ordered to attend court on the 26th of April next year in connection with the death of his former girlfriend Cathriona White, a judge ruled yesterday. The actor and comedian faces separate lawsuits filed by White's mother, Brigid Sweetman, and estranged husband, Mark Burton. Both allege that he supplied White with prescription drugs on which she subsequently overdosed, thereby contributing to her death.

White, a make-up artist and stylist who had a history of depression and had previously attempted suicide, died in September 2015. She and Carrey had ended their three year relationship shortly beforehand but were apparently still close, with Carrey insisting that he still loved her. Sweetman has made several additional allegations about Carrey's conduct toward White, accusing him of exploiting and manipulating her and maintaining that she has a letter written by her daughter which supports her side of.

Deadline is reporting that Paramount Pictures has gained an untitled comedy pitch for Aquaman star Jason Momoa and Saturday Night Live veteran Will Ferrell. The script has been written by Andrew Mogel and Jared Paul (Yes Man, The Grinder) and is described as “Galaxy Quest meets Ocean’s 11“.

The Movie “Yes Man” Is Perfect for People in a Rut

It had been a while since I saw the movie Yes Man and perhaps because I’m in somewhat of a transitional stage of life, it meant a great deal to me. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of anything Jim Carrey after the movie Liar Liar but I admit the man certainly has his moments. While the movie Yes Man isn’t vintage Jim Carrey it’s still an incredibly uplifting and fun movie to watch. Plus it’s a got a pre-superstar Bradley Cooper in it as well as Zooey Deschanel playing the female lead. If you haven’t seen it

Review: The Belko Experiment is a Viciously Entertaining Exploration of Workplace Survival

Anyone who has spent countless hours stuck in a cubicle under fluorescent lighting, listening to their fellow employees prattle on about nonsense will find a lot to relate to in Greg McLean’s The Belko Experiment, which takes the notion of office politics to explosive and viciously entertaining levels where no one is safe. The amount of carnage that McLean and writer James Gunn unleash in The Belko Experiment is jaw-dropping at times, and even if you’ve never been subjected to the horrors of corporate America, there’s still a lot of subversive fun to be had once the games begin and heads start popping.

In The Belko Experiment, John Gallagher Jr. (Hush, Short Term 12, 10 Cloverfield Lane) stars as Mike Milch, an employee of Belko Industries who has relocated to Bogotá, Columbia, and while he recognizes he’s just another cog in the wheel at his workplace, he
