I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS Story

I Love You Phillip Morris is a film based on the real life events of con artist, impostor, and multiple prison escapee Steven Jay Russell (Jim Carrey).

Steven Russell is happily married to Debbie, and a member of the local police force when a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment of his life.

Steven realizes he's gay and decides to live life to the fullest - even if it means breaking the law. Steven's new, extravagant lifestyle involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, soft-spoken Phillip Morris.

His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts Steven to attempt and often succeed at one impossible con after another.
