In Columbia Pictures and Imagine Entertainment's holiday comedy Fun With Dick and Jane starring Jim Carrey and Téa Leoni, Dick Harper's (Carrey) years of hard work finally pay off when he is promoted to vice president at Globodyne, a worldwide leader in the consolidation of media properties. But after exactly one day in his new job, Globodyne is destroyed by an Enron-like calamity - and he is left holding the bag.
Dick's sudden reversal of fortune has left him little time to set money aside for a rainy day. Now it's raining buckets as Dick and his loving wife Jane (Leoni), watch in horror as their deluxe suburban home, their luxury cars and their status-conscious friends quickly vanish into thin air.
After playing by the rules and working single-mindedly to build a comfortable life for his family, Dick is utterly unprepared to give up the American dream. Taking a lesson from his corrupt employer, however, Dick hits on a brilliant idea: If stealing was good enough for his boss, then it's good enough for him.
