This movie wastes so many good actors and it doesn't even become a crime comedy until almost fifty minutes into a 90 minute movie. The first half is a slog where everyone feels sorry for themselves. Nothing like it was advertised. Jim Carrey is funny when he's allowed to be funny. Tea Leoni on paper is a good foil but she really doesn't do a whole lot. Just not that funny or even well written.

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.

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 …

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; …
