Added DiffLines:

* BrickJoke: The beginning of the film establishes that it's set in 2000 just to set up the film's final joke. That being said, the film's entire plot is inspired by the Enron scandal and the ending joke just kind of hammers it home.

''Fun with Dick and Jane'' is 1977 comedy film. Dick (George Segal) and Jane Harper (Creator/JaneFonda) are two married yuppies, an aerospace engineer and a dedicated homemaker. Dick makes a handsome salary, and both of them spend it as fast as possible (one of Dick's lunches costs a thousand dollars). Dick knows all his colleagues are engaged in bribery, but he's honest enough not to break the law himself. Both Dick and Jane are quite happy.

* PoliceAreUseless: During the immigration bust scene, Dick drops his wallet after getting punched off a truck who asks for painters. One of the Latino men pick it up and the police mistake him for Dick via a ''picture ID'' by the INS..despite the fact there should be a photo with a clearly Caucasian man in it.

** And even worse, Dick - a US citizen whose obvious American accent is temporarily obscured by an injury - is deported to Mexico with seemingly no due process, and despite his lack of any Mexican identification documents.
