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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
