Sony Pictures Home Entertainment presents an upper-middle class couple’s response to corporate greed with the release of the $106 million box office hit comedy, Fun With Dick and Jane to DVD April 11th with the suggested retail price of $28.95.
Starring Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events) and Téa Leoni (Spanglish), this film is a modern version of the original 1977 comedy about a married couple who, in their quest to hang on to their American dream, teach big business a much needed lesson.
Fun With Dick And Jane provides comic relief alongside a relevant look at today’s corporate scandals. In the film, Dick Harpers’ (Carrey) years of hard work finally pay off when he is promoted to vice president of Globodyne, a worldwide business leader. After exactly one day at his new job, Globodyne is destroyed, leaving him and his loving wife, Jane (Leoni) without financial security. This sudden reversal of fortune has left them both unprepared to give up their comfortable lifestyle and Dick comes up with the brilliant idea of turning to robbery to pay the bills. Utilizing newfound skills, Dick and Jane exact hilarious revenge while teaching big business a lesson.
