An entertaining and occasionally hilarious film that will keep you wondering, "What will he do next?"

This also happens to be an excellent portrait of a charismatic sociopath/psychopath-type personality. The lack of fear, extreme risk-taking, constant and comprehensive lying and creation of convenient realities, jumping instantly into the romantic deep-end, superficial charm, intelligence, and total lack of interest in others' feelings is pretty much textbook.

The thing to remember about the character Steven is that he is incapable of love or empathy. He has no conscience, which allows him to do what he does. The movie is totally different when you know this fact. He relates to other people as valued possessions, pawns, or obstacles, and nothing more. Doesn't make him much less appealing, though, with Carrey's ebullient portrayal. What it does is make you feel pretty bad for Phillip Morris.

Worthwhile watch, especially for anyone who wants to know more about the non-murderous manifestation of sociopathy/psychopathy.
