While on our very long trip to Florida over the Hellidays me and BlogHungry went to see "Fun With Dick & Jane" and I LOVED it! True, I was expecting nothing (due to the dumbed down Trailer, Poster and TV Spots) but what I discovered was a lefty liberal experiment in completely commercial filmmaking.
What better way to explain the disgraceful Enron / Worldcom / Healthsouth Big Business controversies to the confused masses than to put it in the context of a big budget blockbuster Jim Carrey vehicle. You'd never know it from the promotion but Carrey plays the common man being screwed by the Big Corporation head Alec Baldwin (a la Ken Lay). It isn't the most revolutionary film but it is surprisingly timely, important and fun to watch.
"Fun With Dick and Jane" is littered with Democratic lobbying; i.e. Gore Lieberman Posters, immigration commentary and plenty of W. and his book-cooking buddies bashing going on), which if nothing else is very refreshing, especially when seen in the hideously Republican State of Florida. Go see it.
