From Amazon.co.uk

Remakes are always a gamble, so it's a pleasant surprise that Fun with Dick and Jane pays off with unexpected dividends. It's as entertaining as the 1977 original starring George Segal and Jane Fonda, and the teaming of Jim Carrey and Téa Leoni makes this a safe bet for comedy fans, in spite of a slapstick screenplay that fails to achieve its fullest potential. Rather than attempt a darkly comedic send-up of the Enron scandal that left thousands of stockholders in financial ruin, director Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) opts for a lighter, more accessible (read: commercial) satire of corporate greed and cynicism, beginning in the year 2000 when Dick (Carrey) gets a plum promotion as a mega-corporate communications director just as his boss (Alec Baldwin) is preparing to bail out before stock prices plummet. Dick's wife Jane (Leoni) has quit her job as a travel agent, so the corporate bombshell leaves them penniless and desperate, resorting to petty thievery and, eventually, plotting high-stakes revenge against the greedy executives who ruined their lives. As a send-up of financial distress in a ravaged post-Enron economy, Fun with Dick and Jane delivers laughs with just enough pointed humor to give it a strong satirical edge, and Carrey's reliable brand of zaniness is controlled enough to balance nicely with Leoni's more subtle (and woefully underrated) skills as a screen comedienne. And while the "special thanks" end-credits hint at the sharper, more biting satire this might have been, there’s enough fun with Dick and Jane to make this recycled comedy worth a look. --Jeff Shannon

With Fun With Dick and Jane certainly isn't going to set the world on fire, and it's penchant for placing slapstick over hard edged satire can be quite annoying, yet the movie remains somewhat cute and funny and silly, and it's 85 minute running time ensures that it doesn't wear out it's welcome. The critics ravaged this film when it came out last year, and in truth there are parts of it that are sloppily directed, and don't quite work, but it's really not that bad - fans of Tea Leoni and Jim Carrey will probably enjoy it.

Fun with Dick and Jane follows the travails of Dick and Jane Harper. Dick is a well-off executive, a bit jealous of a neighbor's special-order Mercedes but otherwise happily married to his travel agent wife and pleased to be the father of 6-year-old Billy. They're a kind-hearted off-beat and goofy couple, who are proud of their achievements, particularly when Dick ends up being promoted to vice president of communications at the corporate giant Globodyne.

While Dick sucks up to the Chief Financial Officer Frank Bascombe (Richard Jenkins) and the company's legendary chief executive, Jack McCallister (Alec Baldwin), Jane decides to quit her job on the strength of Dick's promotion. But his situation is a set-up. He's being made the company fall guy, tapped to announce Globodyne's quarterly projections as the company goes up in smoke. Suddenly he's out of a job and finds it next to impossible to get a new one.

Things start to get desperate as Dick and Jane go from shopping for a hot tub to working at the local box store and volunteering for product testing. They eventually end up pulling robberies at convenience stores with their son's squirt gun to make ends meet.

5.0 out of 5 stars See Dick and Jane 15 May 2006
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Meet Dick Harper (Jim Carrey). He's an employee of a mega corporation on his way up the corporate ladder.

Meet Jane Harper (Tea Leoni). She works at a travel agency to support their middle class lifestyle.

Together, the Harpers have a new house in the suburbs, a son named Billy, a dog named Spot (of course), and a servant named Blanca.

In 2000, Dick's big promotion finally comes. He's now the VP of Communications for his company. He encourages Jane to quit her job to stay home with Billy, an idea she loves.

On his first day in his new position, he goes on a cable outlet to counter the bad news in the media about his company. While he announces to the world that everything is fine, the FCC announces a full-scale investigation and stock prices plummets.

Dick's initial reaction is to not worry. After all, they've got savings. Certainly he can get a new job in a couple months. But as the months go by, nothing happens. All of Dick's former co-workers are also trying to get the limited number of jobs in the area. Dick's desperate attempts to get any kind of job only lead to failure. Finally, out of desperation, Dick and Jane turn to crime. But when they have a chance to get revenge on Dick's former boss (Alec Baldwin), can they pull it off?

I was interested in seeing this movie for one reason and one reason alone - they filmed a scene about half a mile from my house. I'm not a Jim Carrey fan, so I was expecting to hate the movie. Plus I didn't like the sounds of the plot. When I got a chance to attend a test screening the end of October, I jumped. I figured this was a way to see the movie without wasting money. I enjoyed every minute of it.

In spite of how the plot sounds, this really is a comedy.

By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie turns out to raise a few chuckles, and make you wince at a few scenes of familiarity when couple go through hard time financially -and makes you feel satisfied the bad guy gets his come uppance. Does that not make it a success? Well, yes and no -for the material and the participants could and should have made it much more. The original was not a softie movie, it was bitingly satirical, and this movie could have been too.

Likewise, while Tea Leoni is as good as always, Carrey over eggs the pudding a little - someone playing the role straighter would have got more laughs. This is, after all, funny only when we can see something we can relate to. Having said that, he still has his physical comedy touch and can fall around funnier than anyone else - this just should have been a better movie than that.

Kudos should go to Richard Jenkins (Who plays the deceased father in the tv show 'Six Feet Under'), as the former executive who both contributes to our couples initial downfall and helps them on their subsequent redemption.

All in all, this is a success as a forgettable comedy to while away a quick one and a half hours - it made me laugh. If you are looking for a little more satire or anything deeper, then look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Is A Lot Of Fun 29 May 2006
By Caleb Williams VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Dick Harper is promoted as the senior Vice President of communications at Globodyne Corp. This job pays alot of money, so much money that Dick encourages his wife Jane to leave her high paying job to stay home and look after Billy but something goes wrong.

Dicks company goes under and Dick is out of the job and out of that huge cashflow but Dick figures that's OK because he has been a VP before so another job should be a snap but it's not and the Harper family fall on very hard times and in order to pull some money together they resort to robbery.

At first they are polite, courteous and clumsy when they rob the stores and people but once they have done it a few times they become professionals and soon enough they start to get enough money together that it goes right for them again, or does it?

Alright enough with the cheesy intro and slightly spoiling half the film i must say this film is really funny and puts Carrey at his very best in the comedy roles.

Fun movie that is enjoyable all the way through and i would seriously suggest you buy it.
