Fun with Dick and Jane - 6

This really is fun with Dick and Jane. Dick being played by Jim Carrey and Jane, by Tea Leoni. The screenplay was written by Judd Apatow, who is most famous for his interesting, but unsuccessful TV shows, Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. He also wrote this past summer's hit comedy The 40 Year Old Virgin. How can you not like a comedy that is a rip on Enron. If only someone could find a way to steal money from Ken Lay and team and give it to the employees left with nothing. The film is really a commentary on middle upper class America and the hypocrisy of their values and lifestyles. This film is reminiscent of Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), but much funnier and entertaining. A well spent hour and a half.
