Fun with Dick and Jane (2005) Poster


When Jim Carrey is trying to print out another form, he hides in the roof rafters. He falls after attempting to get down. This really happened and he hit the floor very hard. Carrey and the director went with it and kept rolling.
Paramount Pictures paid Sony over US$100,000 to interrupt filming of this movie for a week so that Jim Carrey could do promotional appearances for A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004).
During the Starbucks scene in this movie, Téa Leoni seriously injured her shoulder when her character slid over the counter.
The scene with Alec Baldwin talking to the media during a duck shoot is a reference to a President George W. Bush gaff where he talked about the war and then invited the press to watch his golf swing.
Globodyne's employees lose their retirement accounts, because they are invested in the company's stocks. This is also what happened to Enron four years before.
In the scenes where the immigrants are running from INS, Jim Carrey screams out "La Migra", which is Spanish slang for "The Immigration". Actor Jules Douglas taught Jim to say that in between takes.
In the credits, there is a "special thanks" to former Enron Corporation CEO Kenneth Lay. Lay was found dead July 5, 2006 at six and a half months after this film was released.
The convenience store Dick attempts to rob and the smoke shop he does rob are almost across the street from each other in North Hollywood.
Cameron Diaz was set to play Jane, but bowed out shortly before production due to scheduling conflicts.
In the scene where the migrant workers are being rounded up by Immigration, the INS agent played by Clint Howard mentions that one person is carrying an ID with the name "Opie Taylor". Opie Taylor was played by Clint Howard's brother Ron Howard on the Andy Griffith show.
When Jane has to switch the papers in the bank, the form she has to switch is called a CRM-114. The same alphanumeric sequence is used in Dr. Strangelove, Back to the Future, and Men in Black III.
Near the end of the movie Jane says to Dick "I had no idea you could act!" Dick replies "I played Biff in 'Death of a Salesman" in 10th grade". Jim Carrey actually did play Biff in his local high school production in Toronto.
