Mad Money Features a delightful cast
that include Diane Keaton, Ted Danson, Queen Latifah, Katie Holmes
and Roger Cross in this comedy about a group of women who after
playing by the rules, devise a plan to steal soon-to-be destroyed
currency from the Federal reserve.
The story begins with Bridget (Keaton)
and Don (Danson) that has their middle class lifestyle being
destroyed due to the debt that Don has amounted, unbeknown to
Bridget. In a bid to save their home, she takes a job as a janitor
at the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City.
In her regular duties, she devises a
plan to "rescue" money otherwise slated for destruction, along with
her accomplices, they stockpile cash over a three year period.
Although the movie is quite clichéd and
over the top at times, thanks to Latifah, it does have a few
entertaining moments but at the end of the day, Mad Money seems a
little stale and may have been a better movie in the 90's as
compared to the 21st century.
Definitely one for the fans only!
