FUN WITH DICK AND JANE
Jim Carrey, Tea Leoni, Alec Baldwin, Richard Jenkins

"See Dick Run"

Cinema 5, SM Megamall

Run Dick Run

A typical Jim Carrey film. Funny antics, him making silly faces to garner some laughs. Yet at the same time I thought it was a good spoof on the whole Enron, Worldcom debacle. Dick and Jane's lives are suddenly turned upside down when Globodyne, the company where Dick was just recently promoted as VP for Communications folds up. They do try to apply at other jobs but they are just not cut out for blue collar menial labor. So they resort to robbing coffee shops, 24 hour mini marts and make quite a bundle - enough for them to return to their former lifestyle. The ONLY funny part of the movie is when the couple would dress up as characters like Sonny and Cher when they committed their heists. The rest of the movie is pretty inane and doesn't take much brain power to absorb. Carrey and Leoni work well together, I like their repartee. But I think Jim Carrey should consider more meaty roles ("The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind") and stop resorting to making silly faces to rake in the audience to the theaters. There is just so much one can take.
