Fun with Dick and Jane
This movie is hilarious! Derrick and I laughed all the way through it. If you went through any of the .com fiasco of the early 2000's this movie will make you laugh out loud. For those of you who don't know the .com fiasco maybe Enron rings a bell. For Derrick and I it was a slew of small companies that took in tons of money and then spent it before they could actually pay their employees or vendors. Very funny now to look back at what happened, not so funny when it is happening to you. My company blew threw 9 million dollars in 6 months... or 6 million in 9 months I can't remember now, which way it went, either way it was a ridiculous amount of money in a short amount of time. If you have ever been "downsized" or had anything threatened to be repossessed. This movie will make you laugh. To those who survived the .com era..... Our hearts go out to you. What a time we had. Derrick and I can write a book, 101 ways to know your company is about to go out of business. Take care. Happy New Year All.
