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.

Dick and Jane are fun enough, just not nearly as much fun as they should have been. This is a comedy that's all about the message. It needed to be more about the laughs.

A flattened jumble.

... a flabby and chicken-hearted remake

Fun with Dick and Jane seems proud of its satirical association with the recent corporate scandals. But the movie wants the credit without doing the work.

The movie avoids the rich opportunities to plop Carrey and Leoni into the middle of a political lampoon, and turns to tired slapstick, wigs, false beards, 'funny' bank holdups, and so on.

In striving for inspiration, Fun with Dick and Jane discovers moments of cleverness, but there aren't enough of them, nor are they sustained.

Here is a revised primer: See Jim Carrey ham it up. See Téa Leoni have appealing fun with scant material. See studio execs digging into their vault for old material. See ... oh, why not just wait for the DVD.

It's not exactly "fun" that you have with Dick and Jane. More like bewilderment, boredom and pain.

August 24, 2006
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.

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.
December 22, 2005
Neither bad nor particularly good, but just there, which may prove to be its biggest selling point in a season front-loaded with Oscar contenders.

Remarkably redundant.

Social commentary mingles with stupid comedy in this humorless update of a 1977 George Segal-Jane Fonda romp.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 20, 2005
The fun in the film's title comes from watching comfortably middle-class people do without the usual buffers and privileges.

Over the top Carrey is best left in the past.

December 20, 2005
The movie's closing dedication to corporate scandals, including Enron, Tyco, Adelphia and WorldCom, is funny. Too bad the film itself isn't as clever.

Distances itself by avoiding satire and embracing big, dumb comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 25, 2005
Fun with Dick and Jane feels like a toothless financial fable desperately trying to weed out its satirical naughtiness.
