Not so much fun for Dick and Jane
Breezy, uneven update of the George Segal -Jane Fonda vehicle is the rare Hollywood remake that, by daring to reinterpret its source material within a fresh political context, actually has a reason to exist; the results, if not exactly subtle, are still fun enough to fend off any charges of titular false advertising. Fans of Jim Carrey in full-on manic mode should help Sony bank some B. Some might argue that by lambasting the giant corporations whose politically entrenched top dogs and fraudulent accounting practices have wreaked havoc on the American economy in recent years, pic is basically shooting fish in a barrel. True enough, but when the fish are this rotten, why complain? Popular on Variety. In the original, it took five minutes for aerospace engineer Dick Harper to get fired.
The story focuses on a married, middle-class couple who resort to robbery when the husband's employer goes bankrupt. In the year , Dick Harper Jim Carrey , an executive for a major media corporation called Globodyne, gets promoted to Vice President of Communications. On his first day on the job, however, while doing an interview on television, he learns that his CEO sold a majority of share of his stocks through shell companies, and Globodyne is accused of "perverting the American dream" by presidential candidate Ralph Nader himself. As this happens, all of the company's stocks drop to zero, and everyone, including Dick, loses their jobs, savings, and pensions. Dick breaks the news to the family that night over dinner, but tries to assure them that he can find another job as vice president. However, over the next few months, he finds that Globodyne's collapse has sent the overall economy into a recession, and thus left it next to impossible to find a new vice president position due to there being a large influx of other candidates. In addition, he becomes a target for ridicule because of the television interview.
