Where's the ''Fun'' part?

Remember when Jim Carrey's manic energy was funny? Been a long time, right? Remember when Judd Apatow's writing was good? Me, neither. Remember when you just couldn't wait to go see the latest Tea Leoni movie? That never happened. So of course you combine all 3 and make Hollywood magic, right? Well, no. Maybe Apatow pawned this one off on an intern and slapped his name on it, like engineers do. Carrey's every move reeks of career desperation. Leoni is likable enough. She and Jennifer Aniston could switch roles in every movie either one has ever made and nobody would notice.

Fun indeed

This one's pretty good. It's no comedy classic, but it holds up well, and delivers. The situation depicted as the main narrative in itself is funny enough, the acting's good, there's a bit of a social commentary on the frailty of capitalist America but carried out humorously...

The only thing is of course as always with this sort of fairly forgettable bit of cinema is the plot is never original enough to stick with people, and that the developments are just too ambitious and seem half-thought out, almost rushed in parts, but overall that part still manages about well enough.

It's pretty good. It's fun, pretty funny at times, and it works at what it does.

A guide on how to get through during unemployment.

I thought I have seen almost all the films of Jim Carrey, but then I found that's not true, so I decided to start with this. This is a remake of the 70s film or you could say the second screen adaptation of the novel of the same name. I haven't seen the other version, but I must admit that I enjoyed it thoroughly. This is not the greatest comedy I have ever seen, but still so good with great performances, particularly Jim Carrey's.

A simple storyline, a couple loses their jobs and they find hard to get another. They begin to lose one by one, everything that belongs to them and finally the house is the last thing they want to lose. So they plan to do something very serious thing to tackle their situation and seems its working out so well, but for how long. Then comes their masterplan to the permanent solution and how they accomplish it is what leads to the conclusion.

The film was so fast, feels too short or like a TV episode. That means makes us to feel to have more, but it ends very nice way. The story might feel silly, but the comedies are so good. And if you like Jim Carrey and his trademark jokes, then you would have a great time. Truly, I haven't seen a good comedy from the recent time releases, so I'm happy I saw this, even though it is a decade old. There's no serious negative stuffs in it like drugs, sex or nudity, so I think it is okay for family viewing.

7/10
