The DVD of the gay-themed jailhouse romance film staring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor is now shipping in the UK, giving American audiences locked out from the movie an opportunity to import the film.

The U.S. release of I Love You Phillip Morris has been postponed four times since February, most recently in June when a California judge issued a preliminary injunction preventing the July 30 release of the film in the United States. EuropaCorp, the French movie studio that owns the film, claims its U.S. distributor Consolidated Pictures Group has not paid the agreed upon $3 million advance for the film.

The film's DVD release allows Americans willing to import the film – or lucky enough to find it at their local video rental store – an opportunity to finally watch the much-delayed movie.

The film is based on the true story of Steven Russell (played by Carrey, Liar Liar) and his improbable transformation from small-town businessman, father and former cop to gay white-collar criminal and ingenious jailbreaker. While in prison, Russell falls in love with his cellmate Phillip Morris (played by McGregor, Star Wars).

A brief 1-minute clip of the movie released on the Internet in June shows the pair in a romantic jailhouse embrace. McGregor says “Enough romance, let's fuck” as he heads down on Carrey. The clip was available to view on various websites, but EuropaCorp managed to quickly take it down.
