Fun With Dick and Jane Reviews

March 22, 2011
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.
September 22, 2006
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.

April 25, 2006
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.
April 20, 2006
Se puede ver simple y sencillamente para pasar el rato, con una buena bolsa de palomitas y un refresco al lado.
| Original Score: 3/4
April 1, 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.

If fun means money, this is near bankrupt.

January 21, 2006
Divertido e com uma boa mensagem política, é um exemplo raro em Hollywood: uma comédia que, sem pregações, tem algo importante a dizer.
| Original Score: 4/5
January 19, 2006
A not-so-funny comedy is something we've unfortunately learned to live with. But an unfunny comedy with Jim Carrey out front?
| Original Score: 2/4

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.

Dick and Jane thereby emerge comically and sentimentally as the unlikeliest of collectivist crusaders.
January 9, 2006
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 3, 2006
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.

January 3, 2006
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 3, 2006
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.
