Nothing Gay Here

Oh sure, the yellow is a bit fruity, but other than that you'd be forgiven for thinking I Love You Phillip Morris is a wildly wacky and quirky indie comedy about an accountant who is too kind to everybody he meets even though his boss treats him like dirt and his wife cheats on him and thinks he's a pushover. He's never heard the phrase "I love you" uttered to him by anyone. Aw sadface. Eventually he becomes the accountant to a couple who recently won a big court case against a pharmaceuticals company that caused their daughter to develop cancer, but they'd rather use the winnings on a golfing holiday. He meets the poor unfortunate cancer-stricken girl (played by Abigail Breslin?) with whom he develops a strong bond before he donates his bone marrow, saving her life. She then says "I love you Phillip Morris" and he adopts and he goes to court to adopt her. Nothing gay about it at all. In fact, it's quite heartwarming.

I'm not sure what Ewan McGregor has in the story. Maybe he's the doctor?


Meanwhile, HELLO Photoshop on Jim Carrey's face!

It's definitely a fake. For one thing, the film did not win the Camera d'Or in Cannes. For another, this is a generic Jim Carrey image: it says nothing about the film's content (as your post indicates).
