Editorial Reviews

Fun With Dick And Jane provides comic relief alongside a relevant look at today’s corporate scandals. In the film, Dick Harpers’ (Carrey) years of hard work finally pay off when he is promoted to vice president of Globodyne, a worldwide business leader. After exactly one day at his new job, Globodyne is destroyed, leaving him and his loving wife, Jane (Leoni) without financial security. This sudden reversal of fortune has left them both unprepared to give up their comfortable lifestyle and Dick comes up with the brilliant idea of turning to robbery to pay the bills. Utilizing newfound skills, Dick and Jane exact hilarious revenge while teaching big business a lesson.

5.0 out of 5 stars See Dick and Jane December 9, 2005
Meet Dick Harper (Jim Carrey). He's an employee of a mega corporation on his way up the corporate ladder.

Meet Jane Harper (Tea Leoni). She works at a travel agency to support their middle class lifestyle.

Together, the Harpers have a new house in the suburbs, a son named Billy, a dog named Spot (of course), and a servant named Blanca.

In 2000, Dick's big promotion finally comes. He's now the VP of Communications for his company. He encourages Jane to quit her job to stay home with Billy, an idea she loves.

On his first day in his new position, he goes on a cable outlet to counter the bad news in the media about his company. While he announces to the world that everything is fine, the FCC announces a full-scale investigation and stock prices plummets.

Dick's initial reaction is to not worry. After all, they've got savings. Certainly he can get a new job in a couple months. But as the months go by, nothing happens. All of Dick's former co-workers are also trying to get the limited number of jobs in the area. Dick's desperate attempts to get any kind of job only lead to failure. Finally, out of desperation, Dick and Jane turn to crime. But when they have a chance to get revenge on Dick's former boss (Alec Baldwin), can they pull it off?

I was interested in seeing this movie for one reason and one reason alone - they filmed a scene about half a mile from my house. I'm not a Jim Carrey fan, so I was expecting to hate the movie. Plus I didn't like the sounds of the plot. When I got a chance to attend a test screening the end of October, I jumped. I figured this was a way to see the movie without wasting money. I enjoyed every minute of it.

In spite of how the plot sounds, this really is a comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie March 22, 2006
By B. Ray
Format:DVD
What a movie! I remember seeing the previews and I knew I had to see it. I could not stop laughing the minute the movie started. Credit goes out to Jim Carrey for his always comedic acting, but dont forget Tea Leoni. She did a great job in the movie as well, showing her comedic side. I will definitely be buying this DVD. If you want a good, laid back, plain fun movie then you need to see it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars "We're in a bit of a pickle, Dick" May 5, 2006
Format:DVD
Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni play Dick and Jane Harper, an upwardly mobile, happily married couple enjoying their slice of American pie. Both have job fulfillment and live in the upper-middle class tax bracket. Both are so fixated on work that they have neglected their young son Billy, who prefers to speak Spanish, thanks to the Mexican maid, who has mostly reared him.

Dick works for Globodyne Corporation and gets promoted to VP of Communications (but only so he could play scapegoat when the corporate stocks plummet). Globodyne goes under, Dick loses his job. At the same time, Jane quits her position in the travel agency. Their lifestyle takes a downhill turn ("We're in a bit of a pickle, Dick") - the lawn is repossesed; they have to frequent all-you-can-eat restaurants and pile food a foot high on the plate; they sell their tv (the kid piteously cries out "Don't take my Telemundo!") They manage to eke by for a while by taking on menial, minimum-wage gigs: Jane sells her body for science experiments and becomes a jeet kune do instructor; Dick works at KostMart and hires on as a day laborer (but gets deported to Mexico). Out of desperation, Dick resorts to robbery, initially abetted by a bemused Jane, who doesn't take long to get with the program. The film goes on to depict the Harpers' criminal hijinks while garbed in various disguises (my favorite is the Sonny & Cher costumes). The final 20 minutes or so reveals how Dick and Jane get even with the dastardly CEO of Globodyne.

This comedy is a remake of the great 1977 Fun With Dick & Jane, which starred George Segal, Jane Fonda and Ed McMahon (!). This update is just as hilarious and, what's more, is more relevant and topical today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun movie March 21, 2006
Format:DVD
I hadn't seen Jim Carrey in a movie since Liar Liar. And while that was one of my favorites, Fun with Dick and Jane was enjoyable the whole way through. I give Jim the credit. I can't go with 5 stars, because I believe that the same movie without Jim Carrey, would have missed the mark a bit. Jim was in his customary rare form, so the result is that it was a good movie that did make me laugh more than once. I think you'll like it.

Based on the 1977 comedy starring George Segal and Jane Fonda, newer version of `Fun with Dick and Jane' is updated for the 21st century, featuring Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni. The film is produced by Brian Grazer (which may tell you much about the content of the film) and Carrey is also one of the producers. The director is Dean Parisot, whose CV includes hilarious `Galaxy Quest' and muddled `Home Fries.'

My impression about Jim Carrey's `Fun with Dick and Jane' exactly is right between these two - `hilarious' and `muddled.' I mean, sometimes the film is funny, but the script looks muddled from the beginning to the end. The opening of the film introduces us to the married couple Dick and Jane, Dick has been recently promoted to VP of one big company `Globadyne' while Jane has been working as travel agent. But after the promotion of his husband, she thinks she can devote more time to their only son.

But when they think their life is perfect, Dick's company goes bankrupt, and while the CEO (Alec Baldwin) still can afford to live a comfortable life, the employees including Dick are left behind without money. Now being out of job, Dick and Jane try to make money while keeping appearance. After many slapstick gags about how they manage to make ends meet, the couple decide on the revenge plan, to steal money from the CEO himself.

[SOCAIL SATIRE AND SLAPSTICKS] One surprise is the chemistry between Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni, which is credible and works better than the various silly jokes. Even when they are desperate to commit robbery, they manage to be likable, and that is no easy feat. It is true that Jim Carrey repeats his schtick works again, but it is also true that he is careful not to rely too much on his usual mugging face and overacting.
