If fun means money, this is near bankrupt.

Dick and Jane thereby emerge comically and sentimentally as the unlikeliest of collectivist crusaders.
December 27, 2005
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.
December 22, 2005
They are funny bits, but there are too few of them. Fun With Dick and Jane just isn't all that fun.
December 22, 2005
In striving for inspiration, Fun with Dick and Jane discovers moments of cleverness, but there aren't enough of them, nor are they sustained.
December 21, 2005
Most of it plays out as sub-medium-grade farce, but Carrey has some funny calisthenic bits where he appears to have the pliability of a rubber toy.

This kind of zany stuff is Carrey's forte, and so it is for Leoni, too. They make a grand pair, and their willingness to look stupid -- not to mention risking injury with various leaps and pratfalls -- gives the movie humour and energy.

This Dick & Jane is precisely the kind of social-problem comedy you'd expect from well-intentioned millionaires unaccustomed to putting their money where their mouths are.
December 21, 2005
It's fun, and that's fine.
December 21, 2005
The desperation isn't made real, and yet their robberies are all too real. It's in this weird zone, not weird enough for drama, not wild enough for comedy, and only Carrey's moment-by-moment zaniness squeaks out any laughs at all.
December 21, 2005
Other than its 85-minute running time, the movie is in all other ways imperfect, which is just about what you want from one of Jim Carrey's slapdash slapstick comedies. Perfection would ruin it.
December 21, 2005
Would somebody, please, find the right comic vehicle for Téa Leoni?
December 21, 2005
Remarkably redundant.
December 21, 2005
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.
December 21, 2005
Speaking of corporate malfeasance, Fun with Dick & Jane cost a disgraceful $100 million -- approximately 33 times the price tag of the 1976 original.
December 21, 2005
In Fun with Dick and Jane, despair means having to turn in your BMW and hocking the plasma TV set.
December 21, 2005
See Jim Carrey mug for the camera. Mug, Jim, mug!
December 21, 2005
Fun With Dick and Jane is the best kind of remake: It takes a dated film most people haven't seen or vaguely remember and updates the basic premise in a way that plugs it into here and now.
