Jim Carrey As The Most Famous Comedian For Most People

By Wes Harrison

Ask around and you’ll discover that almost everybody loves Jim Carrey as the funniest comedy actor in movies today. Carrey is an easy multi-millionaire, and that isn’t a surprise given how widely he appeals to people.

People have a hard time deciding on what one film is the actor’s best. There are just so many classic examples to pick from. Carrey’s body of work is substantial and people can’t pick just one.

I mean, look at the first two movies to put him on the map. There was the original Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and the Mask.

Those movies established Jim Carrey as a household name, but his career wasn’t made there. He rode those successes on to even better films that have kept him at the top of the film biz ever since.

Dumb and Dumber, for example, followed about a year after those films and many consider it to be the best of Jim Carrey’s long career. He starred along with Jeff Daniels as the lovable dimwit Lloyd Christmas. The duo traverse the country in pursuit of the woman of his dreams.

After the string of successes came a string of less popular films. Me, Myself and Irene was one. The Cable Guy was another. Both did alright, but failed to attract the audiences of his earlier movies. Still, people out there loved these films too.

Then Jim Carrey turned to a little more serious roles. He picked up starring roles in movies like the Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which both garnered him critical praise as well as exhibited his more subtle talents to the world.

There are just so many Jim Carrey films that you could go through; whittling it down to the best few is a daunting task. Naturally, every person has their own favorite Jim Carrey movie that they will swear up and down is the best of the bunch.

This writer additionally often blogs about things including plastic shelving units and stainless steel utility cart.
