My Review:

I need to go back and watch the original of “Fun With Dick and Jane” and see what I think of it. For some reason someone thought this was worth remaking. I guess the idea behind it could be funny – parents desperate enough to resort to a life of crime to feed the family? Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni certainly make it funny. The comedy is plenty physical with broad strokes – and there are lots of laughs to go around. but then you get to thinking about it and it’s all rather sad. These characters are good people, who are in a terrible situation. Alec Baldwin is the bad guy who eventually gets his come-uppance, but then again… is it enough of one? Basically the movie is kind of like junk food – good for a few bites, but ultimately unsatisfying.
