The 50 Most Racist Movies

40. Me, Myself & Irene (2000)

Director: Peter and Bobby Farrelly
Stars: Jim Carrey, Renee Zellweger, Chris Cooper, Robert Forster, Richard Jenkins, Zen Gesner, Michael Bowman, Anthony Anderson, Daniel Greene

Gasp! Jim Carrey in a racist movie?! Sort of. We love this schizophrenic comedy except for the way the only black characters are portrayed. JC's three kids—Jamaal (of course), Lee Harvey, and Shonté Jr. (who knows?)—are supposed to be geniuses, except they act hood. Which is meant to be funny because, as we know, black people can either be hood or smart, but never both! Or as Harry Reid would say, they can either talk with a Negro dialect or without one.
