Have you ever thought your life was a secret TV show? Noticed a few too many coincidences? Is that a hidden camera above your screen? Chances are, no, you're not the star of a reality TV show against your will, but you probably have watched The Truman Show recently.

The incredible film marked a turning point for Jim Carrey, as he struggled to break away from his wacky acting style. After the disappointing critical reaction to The Cable Guy, it was mostly believed Carrey was a one trick pony. However, the star wasn't going to sit back and took a dramatic pay cut so he could star as Truman Burbank, a decision that would pay off, big time.

The Truman Show was an instant hit, gaining three Oscar nominations and winning thirty other awards including big nights at the BAFTA's and Golden Globes. Over twenty years later, the film still receives an immense amount of praise.

With the recent addition of The Truman Show to Netflix, it's a perfect time to look back on one of Jim Carrey's greatest roles.
