Has anyone yet seen the film as mentioned above?
how does one get a job in NASA's finances with a fake resume with their own references and get away with being a lawyer and get over the system that
just imagine who could actually work for these high corps and be plain old joe!..
I can't believe NASA didn't even check the guy out, and not be even checked for hiv!
and yes it is a true story
The story begins with Russell, played by Jim Carrey, on his deathbed recalling the events of his life that led him there. He begins with his life in
Texas as a happily married police officer who plays the organ at church, has sex every night with his wife (Leslie Mann) and spends his off hours
searching for his biological mother who gave him up as a child. But after a violent car crash, Russell leaves his life and family behind to go out
into the world and be his true self, which is a gay man. He moves to Miami, finds a boyfriend (Rodrigo Santoro) and begins living a luxurious gay
lifestyle. He realizes quickly though, that a life of luxury is expensive, leading this resourceful former cop to turn to a life as a conman. But when
his con work finally catches up with him, Russell is sent to prison where he meets, and almost instantly falls in love with Phillip Morris (Ewan
McGregor). From there it becomes a story of a forlorn lover who cannot bear to be separated from his soul-mate. He will go to any lengths to be with
Phillip, including but not limited to walking out of jail pretending to be a doctor, after stealing a badge and painting his clothing, ordering his
release pretending to be a judge, impersonating Morris's lawyer and fraudulently becoming the CFO of a major corporation. He also simulates
suffering from AIDS, and forges records to indicate that he died from it.
