Me, Myself & Irene Poster

Rhode Island State Trooper Charlie Baileygates has a multiple personality disorder. One personality is crazy and aggressive, while the other is more friendly and laid back. Both of these personalities fall in love with the same woman named Irene after Charlie loses his medication.

Plot Overview
"Me, Myself & Irene" is a funny film released in the 2000, directed by the Farrelly Brothers and starring Jim Carrey and Renee Zellweger. The movie follows the life of a mild-mannered Rhode Island law enforcement officer Charlie Baileygates (Jim Carrey), who struggles with multiple personality disorder after a series of unfortunate events.

Introduction of Characters
The beginning of the film introduces Charlie, a good guy who marries Layla, a woman who ultimately falls for the African-American midget limousine driver, Shonte. She leaves Charlie with their triplets, who are geniuses, but plainly products of their mother's affair. Charlie suppresses his anger for a long time up until one day he snaps and his alternate character, Hank, emerges.

The Emergence of Hank
Hank is the total reverse of Charlie - rude, boisterous and not scared of crossing anybody. The transition in between the meek and courteous Charlie and the unruly and violent Hank often occurs at bothersome minutes, causing a riot of comedic scenarios.

New Assignment
Charlie/Hank is entrusted with accompanying Irene Waters (Renee Zellweger) to upstate New York as she's caught up in a dubious operation involving her ex-boyfriend and her uneven boss, who set her up as an individual in an illegal plan.

On the Road
Throughout the journey, Charlie and Hank both end up falling for Irene. The journey seems to have more barriers as they are being chased down by corrupt cops who are attempting to silence Irene before she could testify. This journey is marked by absurd bad luck and the constant character switch of Charlie, between his mild character and the aggressive Hank.

With the aid of Charlie's genius kids who he originally believed didn't appreciate him, Irene is saved from the web of deceit she has actually been entangled in. Charlie then undergoes surgery, which eliminates his alter-ego Hank, leaving him as the gentle, sweet-natured father and reputable law enforcement officer who won the heart of Irene.

"Me, Myself & Irene" highlights Jim Carrey's signature blend of funny and significant depth, and his efficiency as both Charlie and Hank is fascinating. Throughout the comical roadway film, the Farrelly Brothers manage to instill endearing genuineness in between Charlie's multiple personalities and his blossoming love with Irene, producing an unconventional yet amusing barrier to their love.
