FUN WITH DICK AND JANE (Theatrical release USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Fun With Dick and Jane—a remake of the 1977 movie of the same name—uses the talents of Jim Carrey and Téa Leoni to create a remake that is better than the first movie. The movie has fun and craziness worked into every scene as it takes the Dick character to a whole ‘nother level with Jim Carrey as its interpreter. Téa Leoni wisely chooses to follow along with the Carrey ride and ends up being a powerful offset to his character. This is a terrific comedy and serves up plenty of satisfying chuckles, a good adult share film.

Storyline

Dick and Jane design a creative way to ‘make’ money.
