Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) is happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann) and is a member of the local police force. But a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment of his life.
After the accident Steven realises he’s gay and decides to live life to the fullest, even if it means breaking the law.
Steven’s new, extravagant way of life involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, softly-spoken Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor).
His commitment to release Phillip from jail and building the perfect life mutually prompts Steven to attempt and often succeed at one impossible con after another.
