Fun With Dick and Jane


When the corporation he works for goes down in flames, Dick Harper and his wife Jane (Jim Carrey, TĆ©a Leoni) begin a life of crime, eventually targeting the slimy former head of the company. This remake of the 1977 Jane Fonda-George Segal comedy offers few laughs but an energetic performance by Carrey that is reminiscent of, but not quite as good as, his older stuff. The story takes place one year before the Enron scandal, but this satire on big business behaving badly ultimately isnā€™t sharp enough.Ā 

2005-U.S. 90 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Dean Parisot. Screenplay: Judd Apatow, Nicholas Stoller. Cast: Jim Carrey (Dick Harper), TĆ©a Leoni (Jane Harper), Alec Baldwin (Jack McCallister), Richard Jenkins, Angie Harmon, John Michael Higginsā€¦ Laurie Metcalf. Cameo: Ralph Nader.

Trivia: Co-produced by Carrey. Barry Sonnenfeld was allegedly considered for directing duties; Cameron Diaz for the part of Jane.
