Dick Harper's years of hard work finally pay off when he is promoted to vice president at Globodyne, a worldwide leader in the consolidation of media properties. But, after exactly one day in his new job, Globodyne is destroyed by an Enron-like calamity -- and he is left holding the bag. Dick's sudden reversal of fortune has left him little time to set money aside for a rainy day. Now, it's raining buckets. Dick and his loving wife Jane watch in horror as their deluxe suburban home, their luxury cars and their status-conscious friends quickly vanish into thin air. After playing by the rules and working single-mindedly to build a comfortable life for his family, Dick is utterly unprepared to give up the American dream. Taking a lesson from his corrupt employer, however, Dick hits on a brilliant idea: If stealing was good enough for his boss, then it's good enough for him. Armed with this new perspective, he and Jane exact hilarious revenge and teach big business a lesson.
