Dick Harper (Jim Carrey) has been promoted to VP of Communication with Globodyn. Unfortunately, the company is in debt and falters while his wife Jane (Tea Leoni) leaves her previous work. Too many ludicrous shenanigans outweigh the realistic aspects of the corporate greed. Scenes like the tied up guy, first attempt of Dick at crime and a few more make one cringe. The soundtrack was diverse and the aim was clear, the execution with the screenplay was weak. Still, Fun with Dick and Jane is a descent comedy despite a few pitfalls with the loony characters.

Carrey manages to keep things lively, but the film has spotty humor.

Fun with Dick and Jane!

Jim Carrey plays Dick Harper, who has a tough job and has a wonderful family that includes his beautiful wife, Jane Harper (Téa Leoni), Billy Harper, their son and Spanish housekeeper, Blanca. Dick works at Globodyne, a multi-billion dollar corporation, and it all seems perfect when he finally receives the promotion to Vice Presidency, so he will make enough money for Jane to be a house wife. But then the unimaginable happens; the day after Dick's promotion, the company belly flops and is bankrupt. Hundreds of employees have lost their job, and things are really looking bleak for Dick, and they were about to get worse, for Jane had taken Dick's advice and quit her job as a travel agent.

Now they have no money, and the bank is about to reprocess their house! They soon realize that the ...

Review - Fun with Dick and Jane (2005)

Dick (Jim Carrey) and Jane Harper (Téa Leoni) were two successful people until Dick’s company went under and Jane quit her job. Now, in order to save their home from foreclosure, they need to find money fast. Their escapades are chronicled in “Fun with Dick and Jane.”

Carrey is an interesting actor. He can pull off just about any type of role he’s put in. The only problem here is that I don’t think they knew exactly what kind of role his character was in. There is comedy, drama, action, and none of it really sticks with the rest. Still, a lot of the jokes work, and it is labeled a comedy, so it’s fine.

That’s really the problem with the whole movie. It tries to be a real-life movie, but there’s too much sillyness in some scenes for it to work. And I’m not saying life isn’t silly. It...

A great satirical comedy

Dick (Jim Carrey) works for a big company in corporate America. One day, he gets promoted to the position he has be dreaming about for years. He comes home and tells his wife Jane (Tea Leoni) to quit her job because of his new position. The next day, Dick goes to work and finds out that his boss (Alec Baldwin) is stealing from the company and making the company go bankrupt. So now Dick and Jane are out of a job and have no way to pay the bills. So after trying several low paying and embarrassing jobs, Dick and Jane decide to turn to a life of crime in order to get their life back. Fun and Amusing times ensue.
Jim Carey is one of the best physical comedians there is. While at times he can take go to far in some roles, he does restrain himself here, giving a more focused performances; espe...
