A former church-going, organ-playing, family man (Jim Carrey) reassesses his life, and decides to embrace his true, flamboyant self. After a move to Miami, a new boyfriend (Rodrigo Santoro), and a more extravagant lifestyle leave him strapped for cash, Russell embraces yet another change; con artistry. Ultimately sent to prison, Russell meets and falls in love with a fellow inmate named Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). Carrey also dons red hot pants.
