You would have to go back to 2008's "Yes Man" for the last bona fide Jim Carrey hit. Since then he's starred in the underrated "I Love You Phillip Morris" (which nobody saw anyway), that ill-advised version of "A Christmas Carol" (which did good business, but isn't exactly a Jim Carrey Movie) and last summer's "Mr. Popper's Penguins," which made good coin overseas, but didn't quite register stateside. It looks like he may have a comeback project in the long-developing "Burt Wonderstone" with Steve Carell, which starts lensing soon, but if things go according to plan he'll pick up on a franchise that "The Office" star had taken over for him.
