Steven Russell was a married cop that after a car accident decided to come out of the closet, move to Florida and start a luxurious lifestyle with bad checks and credit cards. In prison, he meets Phillip, an inmate who becomes the love of his life and the reason he embarks on another crime spree.

MUBI's take

If you thought you would never see Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor passionately in love, think again. Based on the real life of a police officer-turned-con man, the naughty boys behind Bad Santa deliver an outrageously funny black comedy about love and deception, as hysterical as it is subversive.
