While an early movie review for a film that doesn't come out till late December might be, well, early, I guess it fits considering that Fun with Dick and Jane had an original release date for last June. There is already a pretty funny trailer for the film out as well, so feel free to check that out. However, back to the task at hand.

Fun with Dick and Jane Review

The good people over at AICN have recently received an early review for the upcoming Jim Carrey / Téa Leoni comedy called Fun with Dick and Jane. If you have never heard of the film, check out the trailer or read the synopsis below:

In Columbia Pictures' larcenous romantic comedy "Fun with Dick and Jane," Dick (Jim Carrey) and Jane (Téa Leoni) are in love and living the American dream - until one day it becomes an American nightmare. When the company Dick works for becomes involved in an Enron-like scandal and he is confronted with the prospect of losing everything, Dick and Jane are forced to bag, borrow and steal to get it all back.

While the synopsis for the film does not sound that impressive, I assure you that the early buzz [including this latest review] and the first trailer definitely prove otherwise. The review sent in to AICN for Fun with Dick and Jane claims that the film is great and only stops to pick at tiny little details; tiny little details that will probably be scrubbed off before the wide release of the film. Check out a snippet of the review below:

Overall, the film just works. The director sat in front of me during the screening (he looks more than a bit like John Kerry) and he looks so gratified when he left right as it ended. Which he should, this movie is going to be huge. It's intelligent, subversive, well written and competently shot. There's almost nothing dirty in it except for the very subtle use of the name 'Dick' followed by a term that could be dirty, but isn't in context. It could almost garner a PG rating and be a family hit. I appreciated too that the jokes never went to the lowest common denominator of dick and fart jokes.

It is good to see Jim Carrey playing the more dramatic roles while retaining the number one element that makes him great-- comedy. To read the entire review for Fun with Dick and Jane, head over to AICN.
