    The cast tries to strike up a jovial camaraderie in an effort to save the material, and McAdams and Wilson almost succeed in rescuing the movie from its pathos. But in the end, the film rests on the performances of its two female leads: the maudlin, pleading Keaton and the shrill, irritating Parker. No one — liberal, conservative or otherwise — should be subjected to either of them during the holidays.

  • Fun with Dick and Jane

    When Dick gets promoted at his high-tech, high-pressure company, he and his wife Jane indulge in all the luxuries they once denied themselves. Their prosperity, however, is short-lived. As his CEO Jack McCallister (a terrifically slimy Alec Baldwin) makes a speedy helicopter exit, Dick learns he’s been promoted just so he can be the fall guy for Globodyne’s shady, Enron-like accounting. With the company belly up and his pension check nonexistent, Dick and Jane resort to desperate measures: Dick and Jane become bumbling, polite — and surprisingly successful — suburban bandits.
