    Writers Nicholas Stoller and Judd Apatow remake is more devilish, hitting its targets with the reckless glee required for a round of Whac-A-Mole.
  2. There's something quietly but unmistakably angry underneath all the slapstick.
  3. Mr. Carrey is such an attention hog that most actresses have a hard time holding on to their corner of the screen when he's onboard, especially in broader comedies. But Ms. Leoni never cedes her ground. Both performers exude such acute neediness - there's a touch of Jerry Lewis and Lucille Ball in their mutual frenzy - that not to love them even a little would seem cruel.
  4. Wearing a brush cut that never fits the role, Carrey doesn't do a lot here besides flash those vampire-nerd teeth, and I grew weary of seeing them.

    There's really not much fun to be had with Dick and Jane - or anyone else in this anemic comedy.
  6. In mood and in content is just SO 20th century.
  7. 0
    The material has been dumbed down for contemporary tastes and Carrey's frantic comic style.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. While there were some issues with plot, overall, I really enjoyed this movie. I honestly couldn't stop laughing at moments like when Jim Carrey's character tries to break into the U.S., and when he changed his voice robbing someone. Expand

    Far too naïve. Granted, the movie is funny - me and my mother used to laugh a lot, but there are too much unbelievable moments. Although, IFar too naïve.

    For "Fun with Dick and Jane" to connect with an audience, the filmmakers should've put the Harpers in a lower tax bracket. There's For "Fun with Dick and Jane" to connect with an audience, the filmmakers should've put the Harpers in a lower tax bracket. There's not enough contrast when you have the moderately rich going up against the filthy rich. We want to see somebody from the working class, stick it to the man. But "Fun with Dick and Jane" makes fun of those low-level employees that were hurt by the Enron fallout. This is the wrong movie to make fun of people who work at Wal-Mart-like businesses, because that's where some Enron refugees might've ended up at. It's hard to tell what this film's position is on matters of race and class. We're supposed to root against the mega-corp baddies, and yet the film seems to have a condescending attitude towards the working class. Expand
