Rubber Man Shows he can act!!By DoubleD from London , 28 Nov 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]If like me you find Rubber-Faced comedian Jim Carey's films such as "Liar Liar", "Dumb and Dumber" and "Ace Ventura" childish and dull once the first face-pulling gag is complete, then this could well be a welcome treat for you. Under the current climate of reality tv shows, the story of The Truman Show is quite poignant.
Truman (Jim Carey) is living his happy life in his happy town and his happy job, blissfully unaware that he is fact the soul star of his very own reality tv series - The Truman Show. The film explores the emotions of a man who becomes aware of the situation he is in as he begins to understand his surroundings due to a series of strange incidents.
Jim Carey is completely convincing as Truman and for once does not have a film based around his ability to pull faces!! I was surprised myself, but having watched the film I must admit that Jim Carey is indeed a very talented actor. It is difficult not to feel the frightened emotions of a man who is only just becoming aware of his true existance.
The story is funny, slick and well put together, but it is the performance of Jim Carey that makes it stand out and does truly effect the viewer. After the film, imagine yourself as Truman and think "What would that really be like?".
A must see for all viewers with an imagination.

must see for jim Carrey fansBy Suza (170 reviews) from Scotland , 28 Nov 2012one of Jim Carrey's serious films. It shows he is a good actor in all films not just comedies. the plot that he's starring in his own life's reality show is an interesting one.
In case I don't see ya... Good afternoon, good evening and good night.By Aero90 (2 reviews) , 19 Apr 2012One of my favorite films, The Truman Show is a stroke of genius. Because it's Jim Carey many may assume its a standard comedy like Liar Liar etc. but it is in fact a lighthearted drama with some pretty amazing directing and acting.
