Whatever you think about lewd comedy, its here to stay, for better or for worse. Watching Me, Myself and Irene, one feels that it isn't really getting any better or worse. The Farrelly brothers' sense of humor is as nasty as ever - if anything, it's become more cruel. But, what the heck, we all just love to loosen up and let our politically correct 'part' go on a leave every now and then, don't we? Cruelty to animals, date rape, a guy threatening kids - we are expected to laugh at these, and what's more, we do. If you don't, then watching this movie will give you the feeling of having committed the seven deadly sins in one go.

Anyway, the protagonist, Charlie (Carrey) decides to do just that. But, as the shrink's diagnosis says, it is involuntary - the diagnosis goes like 'advanced, schizophrenic, delusionary disorder and involuntary narcissistic rage'. Whatever that is, it sure does make Charlie more interesting than he ever dreamed of. After all, a man who lost his wife to the limo driver who drove them from their wedding, and has three kids to take care of after his wife dumps him for the 'vertically-challenged' driver, wouldn't have much going for him. To top it all, the kids are the driver's. Charlie loves them, all the same.

All the years of taking it on his chin 'splits' the man from inside, so much so that his suppressed self - Hank - decides to take it over from here, and hands it back when the going gets tough. Sick, isn't it? Wait till you watch the movie. Frankly, not everything can be mentioned here. The rest of the story is pretty simple, as Charlie and Hank fall for the same girl, Irene (Renee Zellweger). Irene is wanted by the police for the information she can provide about a crook. Through a misunderstanding, the 'three' of them are on the run from the rest of the parties involved.

The thing that decides how much you enjoy this movie depends on whether you've checked out the trailer or not. If you've, then the sting would be missing from some of the jokes, but there are enough left to have you in 'splits'. The problem is that it takes time for you to catch some of them. Once you do, it takes time for you to take them in.

The presence of Jim makes sure that there is a physical aspect to the comedy that goes beyond the darts of ...Mary. Forgive me for being so cryptic, but can't go beyond that. One can't imagine that the brothers could have pulled this off without him. Renee Zellweger is as cute as she can be, and is the only person who evokes some positive feelings even in revolting situations.

It is the kind of comedy that one part of you will enjoy, and the other part will hate that part of you for it. If you find that intriguing enough, go ahead!
