Movie Review by AJ
April 14th, 2006

It's not focused enough to be a sharp corporate satire, and it never shows enough courage to wade into darker waters to be a black comedy. What it is, however, is Jim Carrey going absolutely bonkers in his first real comedic role since 2003's Bruce Almighty. It's one of Carrey's lesser vehicles, but this is more because of the awkward script, which still manages to hit enough right notes to make Fun with Dick and Jane a breezy, amusing 90 minutes. I've never seen the 1977 original, but this one is fairly entertaining. Plus, bonus points for including Carlos Jacott, one of the three actors to appear on all three of Joss Whedon's television series (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly), and Six Feet Under's dead patriach, Richard Jenkins.
