Another Jim Carrey comedy (1994), every bit as nihilistic as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. This one teams him with Jeff Daniels in a cross-country quest to return a briefcase full of money to its rightful owner. A few of the bad-taste gags are funny, and Carrey's grimaces have a certain inspired delirium, but this is a long way from the social comedy of Jerry Lewis. The characters here are ultimately turned into punching bags or punch-line dispensers. Peter Farrelly directed from a script he wrote with his brother Bobby and Bennett Yellin; with Lauren Holly, Victoria Rowell, Mike Starr, Charles Rocket, and Teri Garr.
