Slumming with Jim and Tea.

Carrey delivers farce when what is needed is satire.

Carrey, in particular, seems to be working overtime in an effort to elicit laughs from some decidedly underwhelming material.

It didn't totally suck.

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

A tepid and uninventive remake

Fun with Dick and Jane feels like a toothless financial fable desperately trying to weed out its satirical naughtiness.
December 24, 2005
The material is so inherently loaded, the glib portrait is too glaring.

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.

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