As of 2015, "The Truman Show" is Jim Carrey's most highly rated film according to critic review aggregator RottenTomatoes.com.

Although Carrey was not nominated, he won a Best Actor Golden Globe for his performance.
Another popular and highly rated Jim Carrey film is "The Mask," which is his second highest-grossing film worldwide. Carrey plays bank clerk Stanley Ipkiss, who turns into a hyperactive superhero when he dons a green mask.
