Jim Carrey Movies


Carrey has shown a wide range of talent in his career so far. He has truly established himself as one of the most well known comedic actors, and has starred in several flicks which could be considered some of the best comedy movies. But besides that, he has also worked on other types of films, from dramas to thrillers and even to a few romance flicks. But his main body of work has been in the comedy genre.

At the beginning of his career, Carrey was involved in several films, television series and TV movies. One of his first big lead roles was in the horror comedy “Once Bitten”, in which he co-stars with Lauren Hutton. Then the next year, in 1986, he had a part in the drama/comedy flick “Peggy Sue Got Married” from director Francis Ford Coppola. And beginning in 1990 until 2000, Carrey was a part of the cast on the comedy television series “In Living Color”.

The year 1994 was a very big year for Carrey, as he starred in three funny flicks which really helped to establish Carrey’s prominence as a popular comedic actor in films. The first one was “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”, then “The Mask” and finally “Dumb & Dumber”. And then after that, Carrey has been starring in a picture nearly every year, and sometimes more than once a year. Carrey won back to back Golden Globes for best actor, first for “The Truman Show” and then for the biopic “Man in the Moon”.

Carrey has also starred in everything from romantic dramas, like “The Majestic” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” to thrillers like “The Number 23”. But he has never abandoned the comedic genre, recently making a film which falls into the romantic comedies category, “Yes Man”. See more movies from this genre at this page.

Also, not all of his works are geared towards adults or teenagers; he has also participated in several pictures which would be great for children as well, such as “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. In 2009, he voiced several characters in the animated version of the classic Charles Dickens’ tale “A Christmas Carol”. And in fact, his most recently released picture is the funny children’s flick “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”, which is loosely based on the children’s story of the same name.
