Fun with Dick and Jane is a play on the old “readers” many of us grew up learning to read from. This has been remade (with Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni) but I like this one best for the chemistry between the actors (the under appreciated George Segal and lovely Jane Fonda). It’s kinda timely now with so many out of work but hopefully the ideas in this slick film won’t start any type of revolution. Imagine if all those out of work folks started to become modern day Robin Hoods? Look for a great role for Ed McMahon in this gem of a movie.

This was cute and typical from comedy film made in the seventies era. I still like the 2005 remake better, starring Jim Carey and Tia Leoni.

See poor Dick and Jane become rich bank robbers
Lawrance M. Bernabo | The Zenith City, Duluth, Minnesota | 02/16/2002

"See Dick. See Jane. See Dick and Jane live beyond their means by using credit cards. See Dick get laid off from his aerospace executive job during a downturn in the economy. See Dick not get a new job because he is overqualified. See Jane not get a new job because she is underqualified. See Dick go on welfare. See creditors move in on the family of Dick and Jane. See Jane make sacrifices. See Jane quit the Book-of-the-Month Club and let the pool go unheated. See Dick get the idea that robbing drugstores, supermarkets and the telephone company would be a good way of getting money to feed Jane and the kids. Steal Dick! Steal Jane! See Dick and Jane turn the tables on the evil boss who fired Dick. See Dick and Jane live happily every after. George Segal plays Dick and Jane Fonda plays, well, Jane, in this 1977 comedy directed by Ted Kotcheff. Of course "Fun with Dick and Jane" is a less than subtle attack on the vulgarity of the American middle-class. The comedy comes from seeing the trouble Dick and Jane have in dealing with being poor; apparently it is easier to function with nothing if you never had anything in the first place. My favorite scenes are when Dick and Jane's unpaid for front lawn is repossessed by the local nursery and when the aspiring robbers are applauded by customers when they rob the phone company. Segal and Fonda are both fine in comic performances that play to their strong suits, and Ed McMahon takes an interesting "dramatic" as Dick's boss, who not only fires our hero but who also has been skimming money from the company. Maybe that is the source of all that Publishers Clearinghouse money. "Fun with Dick and Jane" is one of the better social comedies about the "Great Recession" of the late Seventies."
Columbia Home Vid Forgot the DELETED Scenes!!!

"I loved this movie ever since i saw it when i was a kid.
Two additional scenes were added to the broadcast television premiere on ABC. One that stands out is a scene with Jane (Fonda) getting a job behind a cosmetics counter and having to confront a very difficult obese older female customer. This was a very funny scene that seems to now be lost and Is NOT going to be included in the new DVD release.
I didn't have a VCR at the time to timecapsule this extended version, It never was again! I hoped that it would make it's way onto DVD.
Columbia why do this!!!!! that scene as I rembember it was one of the best scenes in the film and made it even more enjoying. Unhappy fan :("
Fun, Fun, Fun

"I've also loved this movie since I was a kid. Fonda and Segal have terrific chemistry, and their comic timing is impeccable. Sharp, witty script too. I've also been hoping to find a copy with the deleted scene at the cosmetics counter. (I seem to remember Rose Marie from the Dick Van Dyke Show being in it, and it was hilarious.) Sorry not to see it on the DVD. Funny cameos from Anne Ramsey (Throw Momma from the Train) and Dick Gautier as a crooked evangelist. All in all VERY funny."
