Fun with Dick and Jane

If you’re in need of a little laughter, this comedy was a riot. It’s not a new film. I think it came out in 2000 – ironic given the current economic situation in our country now.

The story is about your typical, upwardly mobile, upper-middle class family that seems to have it all. They’ve got the big house in the suburbs, the car, the life sort of speak, and they’re in competition for even more.

Plans go wrong, however, when they both find themselves without a job. They try everything to stay afloat and keep up appearances, but ultimately, they turn to a life of crime.

In the end, however, they turn their newfound criminal know-how back on the corporate criminals that caused them to lose their jobs in the first place.

The very last line of the movie had me belly laughing for a while.

I give it four out of five spoons.
