The jury appears to be out on this guy
Most of my friends are split on this too - love him or hate him
I think he's a unique actor with amazing talent. Only a few movies/directors have been able to tap this talent, notably Milos Forman for Man on the Moon, and Tom Shadyac for Ace Ventura, of course. These are his best roles in my opinion
Carrey has made very little that wasnt successful and has played the lead in most of his films, including some quite varied roles, although his acting style usually stays the same. One day, I think its even possible that he may get an Oscar nod, certainly in the right role. He was amazing as Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon, Oscar-worthy performance. Forman seems able to do this with his male leads - check big Jack in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Tom Hulce in Amadeus, and Woody Harrelson in The People Vs Larry Flynt
