Consensus: This fact-based romantic comedy has its flaws, but they're mostly overcome by its consistently sweet, funny tone and one of the best performances of Jim Carrey's career.

Peter Howell

This is the most interesting role Carrey has had in a long while.

[The] elaborate cons may be fascinating, daring stuff, but the heart of the picture is the romantic relationship, which is squeezed out to the edges.

Glenn Dunks

[E]asily one of the best comedies of the last several years.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Jim Carrey is the narrator... transforming what could have been a cliched con man comedy, generic Jim Carrey-character comedy or run-of-the-mill gay coming-out comedy into something smarter, sweeter and downright giddy.

Philadelphia Inquirer

Yes, some familiar Carrey tactics are on display, but the star's performance has real heart - it's easily the best thing he has done since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

Jim Carrey succeeds but the film is too mean-spirited and its supporting players too one-dimensional to make this story worthwhile.

J. R. Jones
Chicago Reader

Russell was a fascinating character and a real puzzle box; but the filmmakers have turned his life into a broad farce with one wocka-wocka gag after another.

Colin Covert
Minneapolis Star Tribune

A delirious comedy that remains on track largely thanks to Jim Carrey's goofy but grounded performance.

Will Leitch

Even when the movie's doing something stupid, you just bemusedly shake your head and dive right back in, forgiving everything, even if you don't know why. Isn't that what love's all about?
