This film is fantastic entertainment. It was the first time I realised what a fantastic actor Jim Carrey is underneath all the non-stop clowning.

The plot to me is entirely feasible. As humanity becomes more obsessed with celebrity and reality tv show culture, I can't think why this would not happen in the not-so-distant future. The Truman Show follows Truman Burbank - his entire li... read more

The Truman Show is definitely Jim Carrey's best performance. The idea was brilliant too but the implementation was more brilliant! And there were some really great acting, which is really worth to watch: Ed Harris who played Cristof, the creator, and the others who were playing their part in that fake world, with all those fake smiles, bedded tv commercials, monotonous daily routines.

The Truman Show despite the fact that it is a commercial production scenario has been carefully designed in order to puzzled viewers.
The aim of the project is simply to awaken us and to show how the media affect our lives. Essentially guide our behavior, our reactions when in a situation similar to a TV hero, and our needs. The project is certainly the attitude of the hero immediately affe... read more

"The Truman Show is certainly a sign of it's time. While these days, reality shows are just a regular part of entertainment programming, at the time of this film's release, reality based entertainment was new and huge and only getting huger. Combined with the onslaught of online services that allowed ordinary people to make it possible for world wide web "audiences" to view their lives for 24 hours a day, the 90's was "reeling" from all the "over-exposure". So you know that eventually, someone h"

The Truman Show

“Remember that brief period of time when Jim Carrey was moving beyond the juvenile brand of comedy that had made his name and expanding into fairly adventurous dramatic territory? When films like The Truman Show or Man on the Moon felt like the next stage of his career, before realizing that these were just strange detours before going back to overacting and mugging for laughs? Yeah, I know it’s tough to remember this brief period of time, but it happened. And it proved that if he wanted to, Carrey could have gone the path of Robin Williams or Whoopi Goldberg and left a lasting impression on dramatic character parts.

Granted, The Truman Show is practically all surface polish, high-concept, and a great central performance from Carrey with an eccentric group of supporting players” read more

"Rewatch on the 19th. Saw this film a long time ago, thought it was good then, just haven't seen it for ages. Saw it in hmv for about a £1 so bought it straight away! Great film, Jim Carrey is great in everything to be fair and this is no exception, some good laughs to be had from this film, with some great lines. Some emotional scenes as well, an all round great film, another one all the family could enjoy."

50 Most Depressing Happy Endings (51 movies items)

"The Happy Ending: Having discovered his life’s been a reality TV show fake, Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) finds the door to the real world and steps right through it. The Depressing Implications: Just imagine that scene from Splash! when Daryl Hannah first arrives in New York. Then add a little Synecdoche, NY. Yeah, Truman’s in for a rough ride."

"September 23 I've been wanting to watch this movie for a long time because I was a fan of Jim Carrey, but I never did until now. I'm not too surprised that I took so long to watch this because I don't think I would've been able to appreciate it at a young age. Everything about this movie was great. I think Jim Carrey should star in dramatic roles more often since he really can pull them off."
