Required Education?
Verified purchase
This film should be required as part of american education; it reflects society in a brilliant and truthful manner. Though some say that our society is broken into three sects--the poor, the middle class, and the rich, this is a pipe dream. There is the prison class, the working class, and the ruling class, who often keep power and money within a tightly-locked sphere of elitism. Meanwhile, the rest of society lives in the prison of poverty or debt, continuing to walk along the brink of starvation, homelessness, and demeaning demise--whether consciously aware of it or not. This reality of society ripples throughout all the americas, from Canada, down to Chile. This piece of cinematic history reflects who we are and where we are headed, begging the question in this concerned citizen's mind, 'What is the bigger threat, corruption or weather?'

This film is important, funny, and likely to become a classic.

Let it be noted that I feel inspired to watch a Carrey marathon--especially for the films I have not yet seen.

Ahead of its time
Verified purchase
Saw this movie on Christmas Day 2005, with my sister and her husband, and don't think I have laughed that much in my life. Unfortunately, in 2008, I was put in the same position these characters were clear down to selling my toaster. Too bad the banksters who created the disaster of 2008, and devastation it caused, were rewarded by the highest office in the land instead of punished. No one had to account for where the $3 trillion of our tax dollars was sent, while Americans like myself had to end up living in their cars. I was an elderly woman and it wiped me out completely. At any rate, I wasn't laughing anymore. I think maybe I could watch this again with a new perspective.

Hilarious and family friendly
Verified purchase
I love Jim Carrey, but admittedly a lot of his funny films are not child-friendly, pushing the PG13 to the limit with language and sexual/adult references. This one was, however, really GREAT. It was truly hilarious but offered great family-focused motivations from the characters. There is one scene early in the film where the couple is in their bedroom and wife says 'let's have sex', but then they both say 'on friday' and go to sleep. It is a funny comment of the reality of married life and is in context of husband/wife and is very short scene.

There is a clear bad guy, clear good guys (even though they are doing bad things in their desperation). We really enjoyed this film and will definitely watch it again

Story of corporate greed and those that get left behind
Verified purchase
I was actually disappointed with the first half of the film. It just wasn’t funny. Then in the second half it got a new life and finally started working. I even laughed out loud a couple times. The story is about corporate greed and what happens to the workers that get left behind. That leaves Jim Carrey without a job and he and his wife Tea Leoni struggle as a result. Carrey is his usual goofy self although a bit restrained from some of his other movies. Tea Leoni actually surprised me with her performance.

Very funny and timely movie with Jim Carrey
Verified purchase
Jim Carrey is an up-and-coming executive in a major corporation--until he's indicted for being an unwitting co-conspirator in an giant energy fraud. This movie is very funny and amusing and Jim Carry and Tea Leoni are just a great comedic couple. They get so desperate for cash (their lawn is repossessd) that they take to a life of comedic crime. Good fun movie.

Good entertaining movie.
Verified purchase
Me and my husband got this for a stay at home date night and watched it. I had seen it when it first came out and remembered how funny I thought it was and how much I laughed. My hubby however had never seen it. So we bought it on Amazon and watched it with Instant Video.
I still laughed just as hard and so did my husband. Any movie he likes must be a good one because he normally doesn't like or watch any movies unless they are educational so I was a bit worried with this one. However, this kept us both entertained and laughing through out the whole movie.

You need to rent/ buy this movie now and watch it for a good date night. Jim Carrey does a great job and makes the movie so funny and entertaining.

Very funny
Verified purchase
This is simply a very funny and relaxing movie. I did watch it a few years ago, but upon a friend's recommendation, I watched it again. I still love it. My wife and I spend some good quality time with each other and that is priceless :=).
I recommend this movie.

Jim Carrey Farteth Not
Verified purchase
The butt jokes expected of Judd Apatow and Jim Carrey are absent from "Fun With Dick and Jane", so if you're looking for them, stick with earlier Carrey movies. The concept of this film - that it's okay to steal if you're desperate enough - has been artfully changed into a well-designed portrait of the challenges of modern life. Dick and Jane really do get completely screwed not only by other people's infinite greed, but by the breakdown of modern society to provide employment and hope. It's impressive how likable Carrey and Tea Leone are in this film, how well and credibly they interact. This is definitely an L.A. piece, with gags about hispanic people riding the dangerous edge of racism; but ultimately, it's an entertaining journey.
