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 $70,000 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 robbing drug stores - but this takes more skill than expected! Only as a team Dick and Jane can succeed. Written by

This is one of those "sleepers" that you hear about from time to time. It's a perfect movie for a Saturday afternoon when you're by yourself and have nothing to do but want to see a film you can really get in to and enjoy. Watch for Dick Gautier's cameo as a crooked tele-vangelist; he's hilarious! I really do rate this one a 10; it's funny and very well acted.
