Fun With Dick and Jane
Source: Catholic News Service
Middling remake of the 1977 George Segal-Jane Fonda comedy about an affluent suburban couple who fall on hard times when they lose their jobs, and after failing to land something else turn to robbery in desperation. Director Dean Parisot's version starts out promisingly, but turns sour and unfunny, despite the skill of its two accomplished stars, while the basic premise, a satire on the American dream and corporate greed, is unconvincing from a dramatic, as much as a moral, standpoint. Some rough and crude language and profanity, brief bedroom encounters between husband and wife, some crude humor and innuendo, mild irreverence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
