The Farrelly Brothers films are hit or miss, "KINGPIN" a gem, "DUMB AND DUMBER, good but not great, "STUCK ON YOU, crap, "HEARTBREAK KID, good but not great and "ME, MYSELF AND IRENE," pretty damn funny, but not great! FOX has released it on blu-ray and it's highly recommended. Jim Carrey stars as "Charlie," a all around nice-guy Rhode Island state trooper, continuously walked over by the less appreciative populace around him, until the mounting pressure results in an alternate personality, "tough guy-Hank" manifests from Charlie. Charlie does his best to keep Hank in check with meds, but while escorting a woman(IRENE)back to New York, his meds get lost and Charlie breaks free with hilarious results.
When the film tries to actually tell its story, things come to a crashing halt. However, thankfully, most of the film worries little about plot, focusing instead on the characters and gags.
FOX has provided the correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio with this 1080p/AVC MPEG-2 transfer. It's a great looking transfer. Sure, there are a few scenes where grain is abundant, but most of the film looks great, with deep blacks and grays and plenty scenes that jump off the screen. It's not up there with the best FOX blu-ray releases, but it's better than many out there.
FOX has provided a DTS-HD Master Audio Lossless 5.1 mix. For a comedy, surrounds are more active than one would expect. While this is by no means, an aggressive mix, surrounds and discrete effects are well rendered throughout. Music, dialogue and effects are well balanced.
The extras from the previous dvd have been carried over, including: a great commentary and plenty of deleted scenes. The deleted scenes look terrible, hindered by artifacts and other problems.
