When Dick Harper (Jim Carrey) is terminated as Globodyne Corporation's VP of Communications, he assures his wife, Jane (Tea Leoni), he'll find another job in no time. Months later, their lawn is repossessed, Jane has sold her body to science, and Dick's career as a day laborer ends with his deportation to Mexico. Madder than ever and not going to take it anymore, Dick and Jane turn to the fastest-growing sector in the white-collar job market - armed robbery - as they become upscale suburban Robin Hoods, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor - namely themselves.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Fun With Dick & Jane offers the faintly depressing sight of Jim Carrey, like Dick Harper, doing whatever it takes to earn his supper.
Rotten: In striving for inspiration, Fun with Dick and Jane discovers moments of cleverness, but there aren't enough of them, nor are they sustained.
Rotten: They are funny bits, but there are too few of them. Fun With Dick and Jane just isn't all that fun.
Rotten: The film proposes Carrey as an Everyman for the 21st century. But if you don't sympathize with the film's variations on the American Dream, that's a frightening thought.
An Enjoyable Movie
This is a tale about two people who get caught in a business scandal involving Dick's boss, played by Alec Baldwin. Unfortunately, they end up losing almost all their money and belongings. These two desperately want their lives back to the way they were and they will do almost anything to get it back. I thought it was really fun to watch. Jim Carrey is at his best in this movie, and Tea Leoni shows her funny side. They worked really well together. I also enjoyed Alec Baldwin as Dick's boss. Alec Baldwin could be someone like that in real life without anyone asking questions! I think that it will be enjoyable for almost anyone who is looking for a good laugh.
i love this movie, it is great, funny and very sad at the same time, funny because of the two actors, and sad because its about two working people trying to raise a family (the american dream) when discusting people like Jack McCallister take advantage of good people like them, and when they do those people loose everything and in rare situations they get it all back but they never had as much as they used to, the good life
A funny movie with a great ending!
