Jim Carreython (2017)

The Jim Carreython is an ongoing project with a friend of mine to find out what exactly the appeal was of Jim Carrey’s early comedies for a kid growing up in the 90s. We engaged in watching his hey-day films from a modern perspective, with two goals:

  1. to analyse and understand why Jim Carrey had such a profound effect our childhoods

  2. to figure out what makes early Jim work for us as adults and what makes him cringeworthy

Results were…. variable.
