Jim Carrey IS “Ricky Stanicky”

Steve Oedekerk rejoins his “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls” star Jim Carrey for “Ricky Stanicky,” a comedy about an actor hired to play the invented lifelong friend of several guys who have used his name as an excuse to skip events, chores, etc., that they want to get out of, or that made-up friend they go and hang out with when they’re sneaking out to do something else.

“Just playin’ cards with Ricky Stanicky.”

Carrey’s leading man days seem done, and supporting work, even in broad character comedies, is where his future lies. This could break that downward spiral.
