News & Interviews for Fun With Dick and Jane
Critic Reviews for Fun With Dick and Jane
A gummy remake of the George Segal/Jane Fonda 1977 comedy, this is evidently conceived as a showcase for Carrey's waning talents, but it suffers from a mouldy premise and the slightly unsavoury underlying message.
Dick and Jane thereby emerge comically and sentimentally as the unlikeliest of collectivist crusaders.
Fun With Dick & Jane offers the faintly depressing sight of Jim Carrey, like Dick Harper, doing whatever it takes to earn his supper.
They are funny bits, but there are too few of them. Fun With Dick and Jane just isn't all that fun.
Audience Reviews for Fun With Dick and Jane
Compared to most of Carrey's comedies, at least this one tries to do something different and include a certain amount of thoughtfulness, but it is very strangely paced and the laughs simply aren't frequent enough.
I didnt enjoy this movie that much, it was more annoying then actually funny. Not a bad cast but the storyline and Plot is just silly. I dont think its even a movie worth wasting your time watching!
My least favourite Jim Carrey movie. Altough it amused me enough to say it was worth my while, there was something really off about its endeavours to evoke laughter. Carrey does the best he can, so he can't be blamed for it. No, the problem is traced to the lackluster script. There are a few scenes where I came close to a genuine chuckle, but on the whole it's so flat that I felt indifferent to watching it. The only reason I continued, was in the naive hope that it would get better somehow. Sadly though, that never happened, which once again affirms my theory that all the good comedy writers died off at the turn of the millenium (look at what befalled The Simpsons for example, and you'll know that I'm right). Because while we in the 90's got great Carrey flicks like The Mask and Dumb and Dumber, we now have to settle for mediocracy like this and Yes Man. A shame to be sure, because with talent like Jim's, he deserves a lot better.
