Tantalizing Trivia: The Truman Show

Cast and crew of The Truman Show (1998) were told never to joke around using catch phrases from Jim Carrey's previous comedies, in an attempt to keep the mood right for a dramatic film.

I think this was less about somber a atmosphere and more about an actor's ego screaming "I'm a serious actor now!"

Personally, I put my foot in my mouth often, so I could NOT have worked on this movie.


Jim Carrey:     Angie, how do these pants fit?

Angie:             LIKE A GLOVE!

Jim Carrey:    *argghh* Well where's my assisstant?

Angie:               She's outside on break... SMOKIN'!!!

Jim Carrey:     *groan* Ok fine. Are you coming to the wrap party?

Angie:                P-A-R-T-WHY? BECAUSE I GOTTA!

Jim Carrey:       You're fired.

Angie:                AAALLLLRIGHTY THEN!

I guess Carey should have copywrighted those catch phrases from his previous comedies, thereby leaving no-one in any doubt!

Exiting on that line would be worth being fired! LOL
