FUN WITH DICK AND JANE (Theatrical Release USA 1977)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Fun With Dick and Jane
, fun idea for a story, has comically relatable scenes that use the acting skills of George Segal and Jane Fonda to portray the story. There is a 2005 remake of this movie that uses Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni for the parts of Dick and Jane. This 1977 version is well done and moves the story along well. It is an above average, clean piece of comedy entertainment. Good work for all involved.
