Somebody stop me : The life and time of Jim Carrey

The story of Jim Carrey, the most famous, best paid movie actor ever to come out of this country. Who is he, and how did he get to a level of fame even he couldn’t have imagined? “Somebody Stop Me” combines traditional chronology with the odyssey of a unique and spectacularly successful comic imagination. It’s an exploration of the nature of comedy itself; and a story about the sharks and angels in the comedy and movie business. It’s about sickening failure and dizzying success. Its about how poverty drives ambition. It’s a great father and son story.
