Those 2 films actually look good. Maybe Carrey has a career in more personal lower budget films. That is unless he gets a juicy role in a Tarantino or Iñárritu film and gets an Oscar nod.

I thought Yes Man was decent even if it seemed like a retread of past films.

Yeah, Yes Man was cookie cutter, but I really like that movie. But even that was 8 years ago. He's 54 now? Damn.

Yeah I would probably have the same career trajectory. Do movies, make money, semi-retire at 45.

I personally thought he was pretty great in Burt Wonderstone, but not a lot of people saw that.

I would agree with that. I thought he was pretty good in Kick-Ass 2 as well.

Both good mentions...just saw Burt Wonderstone for the first time recently and thought it was better than average. Kick-Ass 2 wasn't as good as the first but Jim Carrey was probably the best thing in it.

He needs to get a good television gig. I think he would be good on a "True Detective" type show.

Burt Wonderstone was awful and he was awful in it, although I don't blame him as much as the director.

I thought he nailed the David Blane thing in Burt Wonderstone.

Other than that though, yeah it's a near-dead career. Of course, he was dead to me the moment he started regurgitating then-girlfriend Jenny McCarthy's anti-vax bullshit.

Lest we ever forget his super-creepy online proposal to Emma Stone :

Re: Is it safe to say that Jim Carrey's career is pretty much over?

i still think The Truman Show is a quite perfect role for Carrey. loved the part and movie and one of my all-time favs. still thought he should have been nominated for Oscar. he did win Golden Globe i think and Harris was nominated for Oscar, but i thought Carrey was sublime...

For me ESOTSM, I Love You Phillip Morris & The Cable Guy are his best.

Maybe he does not have the chops or letting go of the ego to reinvent himself as a supporting actor or just give up and get a crappy sitcom on CBS.

He was a supporting actor in Burt Wonderstone at least. I think he has enough money that he doesn't have to take a lot of jobs anymore and is enjoying life.

Whoa....

You are probably the only person to think that Dumb and Dumber Too was witty.

And I don't give a fuck if you felt that way in 2007 or even in present day 2016.

Unless FRwL is a time traveler, I'm guessing he was referring to the original Dumb and Dumber.

Clearly a time traveler with poor taste in comedies.

I don't think his career is over by a long shot. I see some more dramatic roles in his future, and possibly an Oscar.

Maybe though he probably found some success with I'm Dying Up Here but this interview does not help.

Shit, he looks terrible. Most likely has mental health issues too, like most comics.

He's had a good run as a comedian. Time to give it up Jim.

Those paint fumes are getting to Jim.

Spending time with Jenny McCarthy will do that to a man... though he's been concentrating on his artwork.
