    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

    Sans doute le film le plus étonnant de la filmographie de Jim Carrey car cette comédie se montre bien plus déjantée que l'acteur. En effet, le comédien se révèle plus sobre que d'habitude (à part dans quelques scènes), surtout si l'on est habitué à le voir dans des rôles tels que dans Ace Ventura, Disjoncté ou encore Menteur, Menteur. Mais cela n'enlève (heureusement) rien au pouvoir comique de l'ensemble, qui s'avère fort divertissant, avec ses situations délectables et très drôles (comme la course à l'entretien d'embauche), son casting (Jim Carrey égale à lui-même malgré sa sobriété, Téa Leoni pimpante...) et son ambiance bon enfant. Bref, Braqueurs Amateurs est une comédie bien sympathique ! Expand

    While certainly worlds away from Jim Carrey's best work, Fun with Dick and Jane provides plenty of laughs and satisfactory poke in a world where embezzlement and fraud within large corporations is very much in control.
    Carrey plays Dick Harper, a man who has worked his whole life to achieve what he feels he deserves, the VP of Communications at the firm he works at, Globodyne. What he is
    unaware of, which eventually he finds out live on air, is that the company's stock is plummeting after CEO Jack McCallister mysteriously buys out 80% of his stock, thus surging the company into bankruptcy.
    As Dick and his wife Jane (Tia Leoni) contemplate life without all of their luxuries, which eventually winds down to life even without the basics, they must come up with a way to get out of their predicament, which of course involves the other side of the law.
    The film starts off in style, with Carrey's pristine comic timing setting up a wild ride of hilarious missteps for the hapless couple, but there are too many gaping plot holes that prevent this film from being so much better than it ended up being.
    The scenes involving our two leads turning to crime are quite funny, and also when hundreds of employees apply for the same job sets up quite a hilarious surge to the top floor. But the dramatic downturns of the Harpers fortune definitely brings down the intended tone of the film, with one mishap after another, the film seems to open up avenues but doesn't explore them to their potential, instead shortening the film to give Carrey room to play, while Leoni tags along, seemingly undeterred by how quickly her marital life has spiralled out of control.
    On the case of the cast, Carrey is on fine form as Dick Harper, is bursting energy which is now his signature is in full force here, but his screen time is shared mostly with Leoni who also puts in a good performance, again, the problem here being that there isn't much in the way of chemistry outside of these two, again something not fully explored.
    Alec Baldwin also stars as greedy Globodyne CEO McCallister, his limited screen time is unfortunate as he is played out as quite an interesting character, buy one who ultimately isn't done much justice.
    Its got its flaws, but for an easy sit down of enjoyable quips and far-fetched situations, this is a movie that might be worth a look.

    Another Jim carey movie that falls flat on its face. No memorable lines funny or not. Another movie that calls itself a comedy when it should be called a failure.

    I just like this movie. This movie was in fact fun. Love the actors. They were perfect fits for each other. It is silly and stupid, which is exactly what it is supposed to be.

    Carrey's as manic as ever, but this rancid reboot plays like a sitcom, and movies need more motivation than that.

    Very funny, Jim Carrey should do more roles like this. At times this movie left me in stitches but when a recession hits it is not too far from the truth.

  1. This is familiar clowning territory for our actors -- hypothetically well-matched here, with Carrey a far more sophisticated and energetic comic partner for Leoni than Adam Sandler was in "Spanglish."
  2. 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.
  3. Plays like the setup for a movie that never materializes. It has all the elements for a successful comedy, but once the premise is presented, the film doesn't know how to deliver on its promise. That doesn't mean there is no fun in "Fun."
