I Love You Phillip Morris 2009

The Conman who wouldn't go straight.
Bad Santa co-screenwriters Glenn Ficara and John Requa re-team for this fact-based black comedy starring Jim Carrey as a Virginia police officer-turned-con man who makes the leap to white-collar criminal after being sent to prison and falling in love with his sensitive cellmate. Steve Russell (Carrey) is a small-town cop. Bored with his bland lifestyle, Russell turns to fraud as a means of shaking things up. Before long, Russell's criminal antics have landed him behind bars, where he encounters the charismatic Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). Smitten, Russell devotes his entire life to being with Morris regardless of the consequences.

Well... I tried. I got to the bit where having someone severely beaten was "romantic" and then I turned it off. I didn't like it up 'til then and I definitely didn't like that scene. As a matter of fact, I hated it. So I never finished it.
