How many times have you imagined going against the norm or breaking the rules – even though you never would.
There is a sense of excitment and adrenaline pumping emotion that comes out of doing something dangerous or against the law. Of course doing so wouldn’t be a great idea – but it is fun when we get to live these crazy fantasies out vicariously.
We get to do just that with the smash hit – and one of the many great films we’ve seen Jim Carrey in –
Fun with Dick and Jane (2005)
In this comedy action drama, we have Jim playing the role of Dick Harper.
Dick is a great guy, family man type of character who is easily recognizable and lovable. He loves his wife, they share a solid bond on camera too. Jane Harper is played by Tea Leoni and what a great pick for the wholesome wife to complete this almost storybook feeling couple.
Dick works hard and when he suspects a big promotion is on the way… the CEO bails on the company, selling it off for a big payday leaving everyone else in the dust, including our hero Dick.
Don’t worry, however, because Dick is fed up being Mr. Nice Guy and having his dreams and hard work taken from under him….he decides to break the rules and fight back.
He and Jane turn to theft and burglary to make up for the lost income which proves to be quite the hilarious sequence of scenes.
Just take a look at this trailer:
I can only think what neighbors would actually think if they woke up to find their yard missing a 2×2 foot square of grass simply missing from the middle of their lawns… they better call up cliftonparklawnservice.com to get it fixed up!
Fun with Dick and Jane is another great collection to keep with the other Jim Carrey greats. If you haven’t seen it in awhile, throw it in the DVD player and have a good laugh. This one is well done and like always – simply hilarious.
