From the writers of BAD SANTA, I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS is a hilarious comedy starring Jim Carrey in the lead role as Steven Russell. Based on the true story of Steven Russell - con artist, liar, thief and prison escapee - the film shows what happens when the legal system, a daredevil spirit, and undying love collide.

Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) is your average, everyday guy. He has a well respected career within the local police force and is happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann) with a young family, but his idyllic life is not as it seems. After narrowly surviving a horrific car accident, Steven is provoked to reassess his life and finally reveal who he really is. Steven is gay and has been living a lie, but now he’s decided to start living his own way!

After quitting the police force and beginning a new life in Miami, Steven’s radical lifestyle change takes him to extraordinary levels of extravagance and luxury. But living the high life comes at a price and Steven needs to make money fast. An experienced master of disguise Steven turns to fraud and becomes a very successful con artist!

However, many cons and frauds later Steven is finally caught by the police and begins a stint in Miami State Penitentiary where he meets his soul mate, the softly spoken Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor).

Released from prison Steven is determined to hold onto Phillip and build the perfect life together, so he embarks on a series of outrageous cons and crazy frauds to free his beloved from jail, and lavish the happy couple in luxury beyond their wildest dreams.

Will Steven’s luck run out or will he achieve the seemingly impossible whilst keeping the one thing most important to him?
