Jim Carrey

RIPS His Flick

'Kick Ass 2' is Too Violent

Jim Carrey
doesn't care if he torpedoes his new movie "Kick-Ass 2" ... he's speaking his mind ... bashing the film's extreme violence in the wake of last year's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Jim -- who plays Colonel Stars and Stripes -- tweeted his sentiments today, saying, "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.”

He added, "My apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”

The film, due out in August, is a highly anticipated sequel. The first one grossed almost $100 million worldwide. Make no mistake, to have Carrey -- by far the movie's biggest star -- drop his support is a huge blow.



We reached out to Universal -- the studio behind the flick -- so far no word back.

Violent movies aren't the problem, Jim. The problem is everyone has a fcuking gun in, you know, real life and stuff.

Jim will never lose money in a lawsuit against him for badmouthing his own movie.

He'd be 200 million in debt if he was sued by the
studios & got "bad publicity".
His ex-wife sure gave him financial insecurity.
Without the money, his daughter wouldn' t be able to be in a crappy music group.
Her forgettable American Idol audition makes you regret how much money you spent on his DVDs.

Carrey's feeble attempt to get free publicity for a lame film that will, probably, die at the box office. Carrey is no longer relevant or funny.

Jim Carrey is a one-trick pony. If you've seen one of his movies, you've seen them all. Someone would have to pay me to watch one of his tedious movies.

this could easily be Jim Carrey's comeback hit considering how bad burt wonderstone flopped. What a douchey thing to say. He's all settled with his fame and accolades how about the little people beneath him who haven't had as much fame as him that are in the flick?

The first one was pretty damn good and he wasn't even in it. So even if he is the movies "biggest star", and he hasn't really been a big star for a couple of years now, the movie should be fine.

Why was the over-the-top violence in the movie okay for him BEFORE Sandyhook, and now it's not?
