Carrey delivers farce when what is needed is satire.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Carrey, in particular, seems to be working overtime in an effort to elicit laughs from some decidedly underwhelming material.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Anyone who likes comedy with an edge will be disappointed at the way this film abandons its clever premise.

Like a piece of rancid gorgonzola cheese, this oozed its way into theaters as part of the holiday festivities (I guess Columbia Pictures was out of lumps of coal).

Don't waste our time with sentimental homeless crap

Carrey's exhuberance blows Leoni off the screen, and that is not a good thing. The movie is about Dick AND Jane!

The movie starts off silly, soon becomes funny and then skyrockets into irrepressible hilarity.

The title holds true for about 20 minutes or so in the middle of director Dean Parisot's loose remake of the 1977 Jane Fonda-George Segal vehicle ...

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

No, a remake of "Fun With Dick and Jane" wasn't necessary. But it's a funny, pleasant enough way to enjoy 90 minutes.

A tepid and uninventive remake

Fun with Dick and Jane feels like a toothless financial fable desperately trying to weed out its satirical naughtiness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

The material is so inherently loaded, the glib portrait is too glaring.

Fun with Dick and Jane produces a handful of big laughs - big enough to make it worth a recommendation.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Sean P. Means
Salt Lake Tribune

Laughing at Dick and Jane in savings-account free fall is funny for awhile, but when the script equates Dick's problems with the plight of Mexican migrant workers, the laughs take on a bitter aftertaste.
| Original Score: 2/4

An uninspired remake of the 1977 film with George Segal and Jane Fonda.

Only fun if you lower your expectations or catch it two years later on TV when you're out of work and can't afford to pay the price of admission for a funnier movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 23, 2005
Instead of being a satire of the boom-time keeping up with the Joneses, it morphs into more of a "consumption is king" reaffirmation of that dangerous attitude...would be funnier if it hadn't hurt so many people.
