People complain about Sundance now that it’s become such a mainstream, Hollywood event. It’s just about partying, people say. It’s no longer about celebrating independent film, people say. These gift bags are too heavy, they make my arms sore, people say. Have you seen Kim Zolciak, I heard she’s dating Joe Francis now, people say. All of these complaints are fair. Those gift bags, I am told, can be very heavy. But the real problem with Sundance isn’t its obvious embrace of commercialism. We all have to eat! (And some of us have to eat food made out of diamonds, duh!) And the real problem with Sundance isn’t the emphasis on partying. We all have to party! The real problem with Sundance is that you get these fames far enough away from Hollywood, but all in the same place, and shit starts to happen that shouldn’t. For example, 50 Cent can perform “In Da Club” on stage with Tony Yayo in celebration of Jim Carrey’s birthday, and Jim Carrey will dance in between them like he’s MC Rove, and everyone will be like “Yay! Sundance!” when they should be like “Hey! Stop that!”

Someone needs to tell Jim Carrey that Yes Man was just a movie and that he can start saying no to things again.

  1. Jim Carrey should by “Stop Man”. Whenever he’s about to do anything, he just stops. Making another movie? Stopped. Dancing to 50 Cent? Stopped. Murdering children? Stopped. Won’t someone think of the children? Clearly Jim Carrey must be stopped or children will be murdered,

  2. fuck. i think my water just broke. fuck. i’m not even pregnant.

  3. That’s difficult footage to watch. Jim Carrey is a doofus.

    And what is the deal with that party? It looks like a super sweet sixteen with Jim Carrey as the birthday boy.

  4. The best part:

    This is sponsored by VITAMIN WATER.

    That’s how you know you’ve made it, when your birthday parties involve sponsorship from Vitamin Water companies.

  5. I just got a distinct Nazi vibe from that video. I’m not sure why. Maybe it was all the Nazi saluting going on up in there.

    Damn Jim, you were on In Living Color, so that “I acted this way because I’ve never actually encountered black culture before LIVE so the feeling just kinda took me over and I came off as a doofus” excuse just isn’t gonna cut it this time.
