    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. It's a consistently funny script, tastefully packaged by super-producer Brian Grazer and directed with just the right touch by Dean Parisot.

    Carrey's back on top slapstick form and brews up great chemistry with Leoni.
  4. 50
    It's the angriest comedy I've encountered all year, though it's pretty well spoiled by Carrey, who insists on turning it into a star vehicle with his slapstick and spazz attacks.
  5. A sharply comic critique of corporate greed might have added to the national dialogue, but this is a series of hit-&-miss sketches.

    There's really not much fun to be had with Dick and Jane - or anyone else in this anemic comedy.
  7. 0
    The material has been dumbed down for contemporary tastes and Carrey's frantic comic style.

    One of the funniest movies ever made...

    This is one of those films a lot of people will miss; it will fall between the cracks of bigger holiday movies or other family activities, and the rest will be scared off by the critics. Too bad, because it's actually quite an enjoyable farce of our society. Sure, it's cartoonish at times, but in this way it resembles one of those political cartoons in the newspaper -- the kind you cut out and hang on your refridgerator because it made you laugh so much. Do yourself a favor: go see it, or at least rent it. Expand

    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. Collapse

    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

    Moments of real wit spoiled by poor attempts to ape Farrelly Bros. Such promise from the talent that brought us Galaxy Quest, Monk, Larry Sanders Show. This is nothing like any of their previous work. Expand

    Oh My God this was awful. Run don't walk away from the theater.
