Jim Carrey has been making people laugh on screen since his first big break on the television show In Living Color. He then went on to star in a handful of comedies in the 90s including some of his classics. He continued creating movies, both comedic and serious, for years after. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and take a look at a few of Carrey’s funniest movie scenes!
Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994)
Choosing the best scene from this movie is nearly impossible considering it’s just a cycle of nonstop laughing the entire time you’re watching! However, one that always never fails to make us laugh is when Ventura is pretending to need help at a mental hospital in order to search for clues on where the missing dolphin went. In this scene he is clearly being over dramatic and using his funny faces and sounds that will have you cracking up!
The Mask (1994)
The Grinch is not the only green character Carrey has played! The Mask is an iconic movie that his fans always love watching due to the funny sarcastic remarks and the overall personality of his character. One of the best scenes from this movie is when he’s finally cornered by the cops and just dances his way out of it. The cops start dancing with him against their will and the faces Carrey pulled off for this character are truly one of a kind!
Dumb & Dumber (1994)
The chemistry between Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels truly makes this movie what it is and explains why so many scenes from it are still talked about today. These two together created some extremely funny content in this movie that continues to live on. This scene specifically is the infamous ‘most annoying sound in the world’ where Carrey had fans on the floor from how funny his sounds and faces were. The bickering between the two is hysterical and Carrey’s facial expressions make the scene even better!
Liar Liar (1997)
This movie really highlighted Carrey’s natural talent in not just comedy. Liar Liar is one of those movies that has you laughing constantly, but in the midst of that, the plot pulls on your heart strings. Focusing on the comedic aspect, one of the funniest moments in this movie is his character’s first court appearance when he realizes that his ability to lie is gone. When trying to get a sentence out it turns into complete gibberish and Carrey does a phenomenal job acting it out!
How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
This is arguably one of the best Christmas movies of all time; one that will truly live on forever. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, Carrey did an outstanding job transforming not only physically, but mentally into the character of the Grinch. Although there are an abundance of talented comedic actors in Hollywood, no one could have nailed this role the way Jim Carrey did. One of the best parts is when the Grinch goes through his schedule for the day that’s filled with a bunch of funny tasks that are just excuses to not join the Who’s. Carrey totally nailed this scene which continues to be popular among fans even becoming a popular sound on TikTok!
