Lacking the subversive vitriol of the original, the political critique here (reflecting the neoliberal bent exemplified by Carrey and Baldwin) is reduced from a satire of the American middle class, with all their unrecognized heteronormativity and white privilege, to a tepid rage at wealthy executives, focusing ire on the criminals who, far worse than Dick and Jane, exploit the financial system rather than the criminality of the system as such, participation in which the movie never really interrogates like the prior version does.
I actually liked it...while it was not "fresh" in terms of being a remake...the Enron scheme is not particularly new..and Carrey had fun with it in his own way ;) I chad a good time with it and it had a decent soundtrack..Rancid's Time Bomb was great :) lol
Despite some hilarious moments and charming leads, its tone is inconsistent and its script a little messy.
Fun with Dick and Jane was an underwhelming and pretty boring comedy about a man losing his job with a company that had a terrible boss and he must plot revenge, but the story took forever to develop and does not keep the audience's attention
Exhausting watch, probably won't watch it again, and can't recommend.
Jim Carrey worked his ass off on this movie, and you can tell where he elevates the script and the dull script shows through. Honestly this is not a movie I would have normally expected of him.
Tea Leoni, Alec Baldwin, and Richard Jenkins are all good actors, and funny in their own rights, but it feels like they were really weighted down by the script.
There really isn't a lot to say, the movie takes too long to do anything except what you're watching it for: to watch them pull off silly capers.
Even once it starts doing that, its over quick in the name of the plot.
Its just a long time to watch something that you know could have been a lot better.
A solid comedy with Jim Carrey that is a bit underrated. Not one of his best films, but still worth watching.
Hilarious! Couldn't get enough of it!
There are few laughs but not much there with the rest of the movie. I'm sure a 10 year old would find it good.
Fun With Dick and Jane is a hodgepodge of slapstick and political comedy, taking a stab at the controversial topic of privilege, and it does so with remarkable originality, often feeling like the story a comedian might tell on stage visualized.
