Becky and I went to see “Fun with Dick and” on Friday night. The Fandango website at Fun with Dick and Jane describes the movie as follows:
“A corporate spokesman and his wife turn to crime to pay their bills after the company he was representing falls in scandal and he loses his job and reputation.”
This was a cute romantic comedy starring Jim Carrey, Tea Leoni, and Alec Baldwin about the ills of Corporate America and the downsizing that has ruined so many lives over the past few years.
It starts out a bit dark when he loses his job and it takes a while for it to become really funny. There are some funny parts during the initial time that he’s lost his job, but you almost feel guilty laughing because it’s pretty tragic and a reality for millions.
I think it hit home for many people in the audience since so many American’s have friends and family members who have lost pensions, jobs or been a victim of a WorldCom, Enron or other corporate scandal. I really liked Tea Leoni in the film and her character was more believable than Jim Carrey’s who was too stupid, most of the time, to be believable. As expected, every situation was exaggerated to make it more funny.
Becky really liked it and thought it was Worth The Trip and I thought it was good, but would suggest waiting for the Rental.
