Now the two are left with a lifestyle that they can no longer afford'unless they get a little creative with their income generation. A one-time head shop robbery turns the couple on to nightly robbing sprees and soson they find themselves living even better than they did before their near financial ruin! But there is only so long that the blundering novice robbers can keep pulling off their nightly excursions, and things get crazy fast. Fun with Dick & Jane is a fun, semi-political film, that any working adult can enjoy.moreless
