The 15 Best Jim Carrey Movies, Ranked
By SIMON BLAND
15. Earth Girls Are Easy
Loosely inspired by the Julie Brown song of the same name, "Earth Girls Are Easy" sees Carrey star as a furry red alien named Wiploc. Together with his space pals, the yellow Zeebo and blue Mac, he heads to Earth in search of some much-wanted female attention after a bit of an intergalactic drought.
14. A Series of...
In "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," Carrey plays Count Olaf, an evil guy who reluctantly adopts three recently orphaned children claiming to be their distant relative. Soon his motives become clear: the children hold the key to a hidden family fortune that Olaf is determined to get his mitts on.
13. Batman Forever
Carrey spins his question mark-topped cane and maniacally laughs his way through the movie as Edward Nygma, the troubled loner who becomes the Riddler. Dressed in green spandex and with bright orange hair, he joins Tommy Lee Jones' equally vibrant Two-Face as they take on Batman and Robin.
12. Man on the Moon
"Man on the Moon" sees Carrey submerge himself in the bizarre mind of Andy Kaufman, a comedian who specialized in pushing the boundaries between comedic fact and comedic fiction. The film chronicles the rise of Kaufman's chaotic career while giving us a brief glimpse at the real person hiding beneath the showmanship.
11. Me, Myself & Irene
Carrey stars as Charlie, a Rhode Island State Trooper and thankless doormat, who slowly develops an unruly second personality following years of being walked all over. His second personality ("Hank") makes itself known when he's forced to chaperone Irene across the country to avoid her dangerous ex.
