Fun with Dick and Jane | 2005 | PG-13 | - 3.3.5

Jim Carrey and Téa Leoni star as Dick and Jane in this remake of the 1977 comedy with George Segal and Jane Fonda: Dick and Jane are happily married and living the American dream, when Dick's company becomes enmeshed in an Enron-like scandal and he becomes the scapegoat. Unemployed and almost destitute, Dick and Jane turn to crime. Also with Alec Baldwin, Richard Jenkins and Angie Harmon. Directed by Dean Parisot. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A husband and wife kiss, they lie back in bed and we see her bare legs and part of her panties as she says, "We should have sex on Saturday." A husband and wife kiss and lie back in a car, and a husband and wife kiss a few times.
 A woman wakes up and sees a muddy handprint on her pajama top, by her breast, and we see her husband in bed next to her and he is very muddy. A husband admires his wife lovingly. A husband says to his wife, "It's a turn-on isn't it?"
 A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage, and a woman wears a low-cut nightie that reveals cleavage. A man looks at a magazine with pictures of scantily clad women (we see women in tiny bikinis revealing cleavage, bare abdomen, bare legs and hips), and a poster of a scantily clad woman hangs on a wall.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A woman teaches an exercise class that includes boxing jabs and kicks, and she accidentally kicks a woman hard in the face.
 A man chases and tackles a man, then punches him in the nose, the man gets up and runs, and he is chased again and tackled again and held by the throat. A prisoner is hit by a guard with a club, a man kicks a man in the knee, and a woman slaps a man in the face twice.
 Many men gather waiting to be chosen for a painting job: the employer pulls away in a truck, a man jumps onto the back of the truck, and another man jumps on and punches the first man in the face knocking him off the truck (we see his swollen mouth later).
 Several men run into a building, up stairs and through a hallway, trying to keep each other from getting to an office first (one man throws many water jugs down stairs toward others, and men fall and trip).
 A man holds a shock collar to his throat, he barks and is zapped. A man puts a shock collar on a dog that zaps it every time it barks (we see the dog jumping up and yipping when it is shocked).
 A man tries to rob a convenience store with a water pistol, but cannot get the gun out of his pocket; he runs out of the store and he and a woman speed away in a car.
 A man slaps a man in the face, he grabs him and says, "Hit me"; the other man does not oblige. A man stands on a table in a club and yells at the men seated around him. Two men struggle over a plant. A man does acrobatic stunts and jumps over a stair railing. A man kicks a ball that breaks a window.
 Many women do a cosmetic test and one woman ends up with a very swollen and mal-formed face after suffering from an allergic reaction. A woman throws soap powder in a man's face.
 We hear that a man is running an illegal cockfighting operation. A man is told to urinate into a cup for a drug test, and a woman stands at his shoulder while he tries. A dog urinates (we see the stream).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
