Plugged in has become a significant compass for our family. Dick and jane thereby emerge comically and sentimentally as the unlikeliest of collectivist crusaders. Wanneer dick harper gepromoveerd wordt tot hoofd communicatie bij het bedrijf globodyne, zijn hij en zijn vrouw jane door het dolle heen. Fun with dick & jane offers the faintly depressing sight of jim carrey, like dick harper, doing whatever it takes to earn his supper. Everything else is more or less perfunctory to that. After losing their high-paying corporate jobs, an upwardly mobile couple turns to robbing banks to maintain their standard of living. I wasn’t sold by the trailers, and another remake is something the world can live happily without.
Soon dick and jane are reduced to theft, at first small time and then on a larger scale, and that’s when this film goes kablooie, just like the 1977 movie did. Fun with dick and jane just isn’t all that fun. The ebert club is our hand-picked selection of content for ebert fans.
