Who is in it? - Jim Carey as Joel Barish, Kate Winslet as Clementine, Elijah Wood as Patrick, Mark Ruffalo as Stan and Kirsten Dunst as Mary to name a few.

What's it about? - Joel Barish (Carey) a normal working, down on his luck guy takes a gamble and skips work one day. This day happens to bring his luck up, he meets the gorgeous Clementine (Winslet) and together they start a relationship and things couldn't be better. Or could they.

Clementine decides to have a procedure to erase Joel from her memories. Angered by this Joel decides to undergo the same procedure but in doing so he makes a massive realization. He still loves Clementine and will do anything to get her back into his life. Is it to late for Joel whose memories are spiralling out of his mind or will he be able to win his girl back.

Is it any good? - At first when I read up on this film I was a bit unsure if Jim Carey would be able to pull of a non comedy role but he has proved me wrong and not just pulled it off but gone even further and made this role his own. Complimented by Kate Winslet and Kirsten Dunst this film is outstanding and shows a story of true love and desire.

Why should I watch it? - I recommend this a must for all to watch.

How do you rate it overall? - 10/10
