Manager Dick Harper and his attractive young wife Jane are used to a comfortable lifestyle. They just build a swimming-pool when Dick is fired very unexpectedly - leaving him with $70,000 debt on thehouse. They try to hide this from the neighbors and just cut down their expenses, but soon it's obvious: living from unemployment bonus drives them crazy, it's uncertain if they can keep the house. Dick decides that robbing drug stores is their only way out - but this takes more skill than expected! Only as a team Dick and Jane can succeed.

While trying their hardest to hold onto what little they can, Dick and Jane witness a robbery and soon find themselves turning to a life of crime to just make ends meet.
It's a great visit to the 70's. A time I don't remember much myself because I was only about 7 when the movie came out, but it's not hard to see how anyone would have a crush on Jane Fonda. She is funny, classy and very sexy.
The movie does a great job in getting you to feel for a couple of Spoiled, Rich white folk that really dont deserve your sympathy even if they really didn't do anything wrong other then live life on the hog.
This movie is 1000 times better then the remake. I would say it's a good time, a worth a watch.
I consider it one of the top movies of all time -- but many people need weight and heft before they will stake any such claim. If you are one of those, I'm sorry. I will always love this film.
If anyone knows how to campaign for a DVD version, let us know. A few other reviewers have asked for a DVD version, I see.
One reason I wanted to write this review is that I recently saw "The Morning After" and was surprised that my opinion was so different than most reviews I researched. This is a fine look at Jane Fonda's ability by Sidney Lumet. I think a lot of people misunderstand what they are seeing, however. If you don't "get it" you might not appreciate the brilliance of this performance: we don't know who Fonda is portraying for most of the movie. Seeing an actor is most often like receiving a specially prepared gift. The actor's work ususally supplies a lot of "givens" to the developing story. Not the case in "The Morning After." Here, we are challenged rather than coddled to. Only near the end do we find that the character's history includes more than the status of a "ne'er-been" TV walk-on actress.
I was will be thinking about this movie for days and watching it again. And watching "Fun with Dick and Jane" more, too. Both of these films should make you proud of a job well done by Jane Fonda.
So if Jim Carrey's antics are what makes you laugh, so be it. I just wish he'd have had less funny looks and a MUCH funnier script to work with.
If fun and frolic with two great actors is what you'd prefer, go for the original~! Also, the sight gags are wonderful!
