ORIGINAL 1977 MOVIE OUTLINE
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 a huge debt on the house. 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 doesn't see another way out than KNOCKING OVER drug stores - but this takes more skill than expected! Only as a team Dick and Jane can succeed.
This was a so-so 70s movie about a pair of pre-Yuppies who want to maintain their middle-class lifestyle by robbing others. Since then we've had the reality of real violent crime broadcast on a 24 hour basis. That's people robbed and murdered for the price of a cigarette. Do you think, that's going to say "fun" for middle America? Even with Carrey in it. He earns $25 mil a movie, Diaz has to be picking up double digits. So this movie is at least $35 mil in the hole before a frame is shot. Who knows?

SIDEBAR
Of course, the rich Hollywood people who are making this movie have the dosh to insulate themselves against random acts of violence - armed guards, swish limos, fortress like homes. Great eh?
