The final third of this movie isn't a remake of the original film but of the bland sappiness of the original kiddie books.

A gummy remake of the George Segal/Jane Fonda 1977 comedy, this is evidently conceived as a showcase for Carrey's waning talents, but it suffers from a mouldy premise and the slightly unsavoury underlying message.

If you are one of the many out of work right now, try this movie for a good laugh.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 1, 2006
A razor-sharp satire on class struggle and the evaporating America dream, which adroitly masquerades as a screwball star turn.
February 21, 2006
Carrey and Leoni don't achieve much chemistry, mostly because she's so busy playing straight man to his antics.
January 24, 2006
If fun means money, this is near bankrupt.
