Movie Info

A not-so-ordinary family finds a new way of paying the bills in this comedy. Dick Harper (Jim Carrey) and his wife, Jane (Téa Leoni), would seem to have it made -- Dick has a high-paying job, they live in an expensive house in the suburbs, they have two luxury cars in the driveway, and a housekeeper, Blanca (Gloria Garayua), to help look after their son, Billy. But Dick and Jane's fairy-tale life crashes head-on into reality when the firm Dick works for turns out to have been using unscrupulous

Dick and Jane thereby emerge comically and sentimentally as the unlikeliest of collectivist crusaders.

Fun With Dick & Jane offers the faintly depressing sight of Jim Carrey, like Dick Harper, doing whatever it takes to earn his supper.

Fun with Dick and Jane is an extended Enron joke used to give Jim Carrey plenty of opportunity to mug for the camera. Everything else is more or less perfunctory to that.

March 22, 2011 Full Review Source:

Consider it a signed confession of remake rape when a "produced by Jim Carrey" credit appears atop his noodle-limbed exaggeration of "I Believe I Can Fly." his corporate-greed satire doesn't just lack bite. It lacks gnaw. It even lacks nibble.

September 25, 2010 Full Review Source:

The downward mobility of the middle class straight to the poverty level, or crime often not as evil, but rather economic desperation, are plot points hardly likely to sit well with those who control this economy and profit from it.

An entertaining and zippy 87 minutes.

In a strange way, it's fitting that a movie about people out of work should itself barely work.

September 22, 2006
Christianity Today

This cynical look at how the American family can only achieve their dreams through crime is a bit more of a political statement rather than comedic entertainment.

August 24, 2006 Full Review Source:

A sharp, funny shot at people taking their luxe life too seriously.

May 4, 2006 Full Review Source:

The film proposes Carrey as an Everyman for the 21st century. But if you don't sympathize with the film's variations on the American Dream, that's a frightening thought.

Se puede ver simple y sencillamente para pasar el rato, con una buena bolsa de palomitas y un refresco al lado.

April 20, 2006

A razor-sharp satire on class struggle and the evaporating America dream, which adroitly masquerades as a screwball star turn.

Carrey and Leoni don't achieve much chemistry, mostly because she's so busy playing straight man to his antics.

Denton Record Chronicle (TX)

If fun means money, this is near bankrupt.

January 24, 2006 Full Review Source:

Divertido e com uma boa mensagem política, é um exemplo raro em Hollywood: uma comédia que, sem pregações, tem algo importante a dizer.

Cinema em Cena

A not-so-funny comedy is something we've unfortunately learned to live with. But an unfunny comedy with Jim Carrey out front?

January 19, 2006

A more accurate title would be Not Much Fun With Dick and Jane - Carrey and Leoni keep this watchable but it's painfully light on laughs throughout.

January 19, 2006 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

Sure, you can go and have a few laughs, but it's going to be like that first big paycheck you got before you realized how much is taken off the top, it's just not as good as you hoped for.

January 9, 2006 Full Review Source:

Alternating between lowbrow comedy and pointed political commentary is a bold strategy, but the combination results in a film neither dumb enough nor smart enough to work.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Sharp satire coexists uneasily with slapstick comedy... and unless you're Mel Brooks, any attempt to cram them into a blender and hit purée will produce something putrid.

If there's meant to be any satire in the idea that these two will do almost anything to maintain their obscene consumerist lifestyle, it's lost in the poking fun at what lots of ordinary working-class folks do to make a living.

Audience Reviews for Fun With Dick and Jane

Compared to most of Carrey's comedies, at least this one tries to do something different and include a certain amount of thoughtfulness, but it is very strangely paced and the laughs simply aren't frequent enough.

I didnt enjoy this movie that much, it was more annoying then actually funny.
Not a bad cast but the storyline and Plot is just silly. I dont think its even a movie worth wasting your time watching!

My least favourite Jim Carrey movie. Altough it amused me enough to say it was worth my while, there was something really off about its endeavours to evoke laughter. Carrey does the best he can, so he can't be blamed for it. No, the problem is traced to the lackluster script. There are a few scenes where I came close to a genuine chuckle, but on the whole it's so flat that I felt indifferent to watching it. The only reason I continued, was in the naive hope that it would get better somehow. Sadly though, that never happened, which once again affirms my theory that all the good comedy writers died off at the turn of the millenium (look at what befalled The Simpsons for example, and you'll know that I'm right). Because while we in the 90's got great Carrey flicks like The Mask and Dumb and Dumber, we now have to settle for mediocracy like this and Yes Man. A shame to be sure, because with talent like Jim's, he deserves a lot better.

Remember The Mask? The film that became so popular because of Carrey's physical comedy performances? Fun With Dick and Jane is just like that. It's not as funny neither does it have any character development but trust me. It's funny.
