‘I Love You, Phillip Morris’ gets release date

The Jim Carrey movie, “I Love You, Phillip Morris,” finally has a release date of Dec. 3. Release of the film has been delayed a number of times.

The story of the Texas con man who falls in love with his prison cell mate and escapes from Huntsville several times to be with him is based on a true story.

Delays in release are usually not a good sign and the book wasn’t that good. The film first screened at Sundance Film Festival in January 2009.

But it’s a gay love story and takes place in Texas, so it’ll have local appeal.

The real buzz is about Jim Carrey’s sex scene with co-star Ewan McGregor.
