Book Description

Kidding Around with the King of Comedy
Jim Carrey is used to being laughed at. In fact, he thrives on entertaining others. As a precocious young boy, he practiced pulling faces in the bathroom mirror -- a talent that would later prove to be instrumental in his success -- and performed self-created skits for his family.
Unfortunately, his life wasn't one smooth cruise to the top. The Canadian-born funnyman's rags-to-riches tale is the stuff dreams are made of.
Since his early smash hit Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the blockbuster movie roles just keep on coming. But Carrey isn't content simply to play it safe and stick with the slapstick comedy roles he knows and performs so confidently. In fact, with releases such as The Truman Show and Man on the Moon, Carrey has challenged himself creatively and shown audiences that he is capable of demonstrating sensitivity and immense dramatic range. With his latest hit move, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, this shooting star's future just keeps getting brighter!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a very long read, no new info... June 16, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you are an avid reader, and thus have read other bios of Jim Carrey, this book, although seemingly accurate, is just a time filler. Nothing new, just a different premise. As an adoring Jim Carrey fan forever, it was fine to finish through, and it listed all of his screen prefomances, even had a Jim Carrey quiz to see how much you know, but this isnt a book of defined details. It is very brief and seems geared toward teens. Much better JC bios out there, but it will do for the time being.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meant More For Kids March 9, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently bought this book and was disappointed to realize it was intended more for kids than adults. It has the facts but the writing isn't very great. There is no emotion in this book unless you search for it, the way it's written is more like a chronological list of the events in Jim Carrey's life than a story about a man. It does tell the very basic story of Jim Carrey's struggle to achieve his dreams so if you're interested in Jim Carrey it's not all bad, but I think 'The Joker Is Wild' will be a much better biography than this. But hey, if you're buying this book for a kid, go for it. Jim Carrey's is a very inspirational story, a true rags-to-riches tale. Only his story is real.
I gave it two stars because I'm still a huge Carrey fan, so if it had been a picture book I wouldn't be completely disatisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for 5th grade biography book report! April 27, 2012
By Jen
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for 5th grade book reports. A biography for this age would normally be very boring, but my 5th grade non-reader really enjoyed it. He read it twice! Even after he didn't have to do a report on it!
