An insurance salesman discovers that his entire life has been a television show. This movie was heartbreaking and sad.

I love it. Furthermore, I love the show big brother, and this is close to the territory the show covers. One of my favorites.

A brilliant idea and a great self-discovery film. Jim Carey was perfect for this role and delivered an excellent performance. If you have ever been to Universal Studios in Orlando, you know that building a fake town isn't a stretch. I really enjoy this movie every time I watch it. As I watch Jim Carey realizing the bubble he lives in, I can understand the bubble we all find ourselves in. A great piece. I would have loved a sequel, where Carey adventures his new world and deals with fame. It would probably butcher this original, but could also be magnificent if done the right way.

A strong concept but the script makes no attempt to analyse the moral and social implications of the subject matter. A decent but over-rated Carrey vehicle that's nowhere near as clever as it thinks it is. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind is far superior.

The Truman Show

One of the best, if not, the best role Jim Carrey has portrayed on-screen. This film exposes his acting range and without going over the top just like in his earlier work. Laura Linney and Ed Harris were instrumental as well. Wonderful performances from them. The drama and humor were mixed well. The premise was unique and soundtrack was stunning. Its screenplay is amazing. A few lines: Truman Burbank - "Somebody help me, I'm being spontaneous!" "Good morning, and in case I don't see ya: Good afternoon, good evening, and good night!" Christof - "We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented, it's as simple as that." "I've given Truman the chance to lead a normal life. The world, the place you live in is the sick place. Seahaven is the way the world should be." A ...
