Jim Carrey would like to take back that check that his ego wrote last week, please.

It would appear that Jim Carrey’s agent has finally tracked his client down and dangled him over the top of a building for a while*:

 

I’ll spare you too much of Carrey’s response, which I frankly am reading in short, controlled bursts (if I read for too long, my eyes start rolling up and to the right and I can’t stay focused on the middle of the screen), but this leaps out at me:

How shallow do they think I am?

…Is this a trick question?

PS: This is, by the way, about one-third through the process.  The begging and pleading in earnest will start if and when Kick-Ass 2 tanks.  And, honestly, right now I’m not all that pumped to go see it.

 

*Yes, Batman WOULD make an awesome agent. Especially for writers who have decided that they no longer need to edit for length.

    “Ace Ventura, Pet Detective”, Mr. Carrey, does not indicate deep thought.
    .
    In short, it’s not that Carrey’s shallow .. his offer to trade his fame and fortune for others’ lives shows a certain depth of character. No, the problem is Carey’s demonstratedly flaccid, pathetic intellect in accepting that gun control would help *at all*, after the repeated contra-demonstrations.

      I disagree with your assessment of his depth, ‘cat; I don’t think he has the intellectual capacity for greater as much depth as a sheet of tissue paper…
      .
      His movies are made to appeal to pre-teens, and amount to hour-and-a-half-long fart jokes……
      .
      None of that means he isn’t sincere, mind you…. for whatever misplaced sincerity is worth.

        We are not very far apart at all, qixlqatl.
        .
        I do not dispute, in fact I *cited* a Carrey movie as indicating a lack of deep thought.
        .
        I indicated that his heart appears to be in the right place. Nothing more.
        .
        By giving a small amount of credit to his intent, we make a much stronger case for his failure to *think*.

          Ah, I see how I misread that, now: “it’s not that Carrey’s shallow” does not mean that he isn’t shallow, it means that his shallowness is not the issue.

      I have one retort for Mr. Carrey; cities of Chicago & New York are led by two devoted gun grabbers, have some of the tightest gun laws and well…highest gun deaths. Could throw DC in there as well, most effective deterent to senseless gun deaths seems to be good, high paying jobs and getting the mentally ill into treatment for their illness.

        #Truth.
        .
        Clearly, the gun-grabbers who aren’t mayors of rotting urban voter-plantations wouldn’t have a *problem* with a mass urban gun-grab…teams of heavily armed and armored cops going through skid row and similar neighborhoods searching for weapons and arresting their law-breaking owners….
        .
        That *neither* happen seem to indicate that the gun-grabbers and their nominal fellow travelers are actually *not* in agreement.
        .
        If a cat can observe this, why can’t Carrey?

    I guess the Canadian education system doesn’t really teach cause and effect at all.

  • Finrod says:

    Gee, he insults one hundred million people then gets shocked when some of them take it personally.

    • tnfriendofcoal101368 says:

      Well to be fair, Ole Jimbo isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed and criticizing him on these grounds assumes some brain talent he doesn’t have.

  • BigGator5 says:

    Meh, he doesn’t even address his insulting Charlton Heston.

  • Catseyes says:

    I’ll be charitable seeing as how he’s a known to suffer from bi-polar syndrome, and accept that he had an episode. As for his intellect well it’s not deep enough to get the bottom of your shoes wet.
