Jim Carrey in Eternal sunshine and I loved him in the number 23.

Eternal Sunshine is the one film I actually fell in love with Carrey. It is a film I felt completely emotional about while watching and the first film I've ever cried to!

Agree, Jackie Chan is a great comedic actor, but his best dramatic role is Heart Of Dragon. He and Sammo Hung were SO good in this.
