This is a funny comedy (which it's supposed to be). But, Unfourtunantly, it takes MORE than just comedy to make it a good comedy film: a good, worthful, understandable, and mature story with a point and good message, and interesting, deep characters with motivations. This movie doesn't have any of these. I did'nt care for any of the characters in this film, even Jim Carrey's character. He's funny almost most of the time, & His performance is over-the-top which is normal, but here, he is too edgy and larger than life, & are stretched out too long, it's tiring & it gets to the point where it's not funny anymore, the same goes to the comedy itself (how the comedy was scripted). It's stretched out long, a bit dumb, & it gets old a tiny bit fast. Sure, he does tell "white lies" which are okay sometimes, & he is carful about what he says. Then, when the wish comes true into truth mode, Fletcher is Mean, immature, distastful, unlikable, and has emotional breakdowns, (No Spoilers, but the ending is solid enough). The story is derivative, it's like taking the narrative from "Charly (1968)" and make it different with thought bubbles and talk bubbles with a twist at the end. Recomended? No

Jim Carrey is my favorite actor of all time. This movie is also one of my personal favorites. It's hilarious and one of the best comedys by Jim Carrey. I recommend this movie to anyone thinking about getting it. Trust me it'll be worth it definitely. You won't regret it for sure.
