Movie:Fun With Dick & Jane〈我愛上流〉
Teacher:Tommy



Why this movie use the name of Dick & Jane for the leading role ,
it's because of the content of 1 unit of the US elementary school class,
it's "See Dick run" & "See Jane run".

Since the leading roles in this movie are running very hard for living & making money ,
that's why they give the leading roles the name of Dick & Jane.
These 2 names can easier let American imagine "run".
