"We're all just cavemen, Trying to protect our little patch of land. Well now I've got a club, and I'm gonna take what I need."I first saw this movie in theaters in 2005 and thought it was hilarious.
But when I saw it again when I was out of work a few months ago, it took on a whole new kind of funny.
Starring Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni, Fun follows the survival antics of a blue collar suburban couple who find themselves out of work after his company tanks. Devastated and at a loss for what to do, they concoct one plan after another (sometimes legal, sometimes not, but always funny to watch) to get their lives back on track again.
I'm not normally a big Jim Carrey fan, but I found myself laughing hysterically at him and Tea Leoni's desperate attempts and the douchebag remarks of Alec Baldwin, who plays Carrey's former boss.
If you are one of the many out of work right now, try this movie for a good laugh.
My rating: B
