He is known to inhibit his character so well that he becomes the character he plays on screen.  But perhaps what stands out about Carrey is that he doesn't make a comedy, but a dramatic performance.The actor's signature facial expressions and screams won him his first Golden Globes for his movie The Mask. He proved to us that with The Truman Show that he could be emotionally charged on the screen like never before.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

Bruce Almighty (2003)
The perfect combination of laughter is Steve Carell and Jim Carrey and this movie just hits it right. A TV reporter complains to god about his problems and ends up getting God's powers. 

 

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
