    He created some of the greatest comedic performances of all time. Dumb & Dumber, The Mask, Ace Ventura, Liar Liar, The Cable Guy and Me, Myself & Irene. Performances that have all lived on.

    Many suggested that he was an overactor who can only play it “BIG”. To silence those critics he made The Truman, a performance that won him Best Actor in a Drama at the GG’s. Man on the Moon & The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Three performances that should have been rewarded with Oscar nominations.

    You talk about range, Ace Ventura and Joel Barish are played by the same person. How many actors in the last 50 years could pull those performances off.

    When dramatic actors give great dramatic performances they are regarded as one of the great actors PERIOD, not one of the great dramatic actors. When comedic actors give great comedic performances they are regarded as one of the best comedic actors.  To be regarded as one of the great actors you need range!

    Where is Daniel Day Lewis Ace Ventura performance?

    For those reasons Jim Carrey is one of the greatest actors in the last 50 years.

    He has never given a great performance, but he has certainly given a bad performance. I guess I disagree with you.

    And I won’t tell you why.

    Jim Carrey is a inconsistent actor in my opinion, but when he’s good, he’s GOOD!
    His performances in ESOASM, The Truman Show and Man on the Moon prove it.

    Darlings, I can’t stand him in comedies (even though I’d call them horror films) but when he does drama he’s great.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"
