Jim Carrey Pulls Support For Kick-Ass 2 Movie

Monday, June 24, 2013

How do you get out of a movie you've already shot?

That's the current dilemma for actor Jim Carrey who announced he'll no longer support the film Kick-Ass 2, where he plays a leading role in the comic book sequel.

Carrey said that following the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, he can't support a film with this level of violence. The movie was filmed a month before the shooting and is rated R.

"I did Kickass a month (before) Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence," Carrey tweeted. "My apologies to others (involved) with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart."

Rafer Guzman, film critic for Newsday and co-host of the Takeaway Movie Date podcast, joins us to discuss the film.
