A dollar saved is a dollar earned
Amanda Richards | Georgetown, Guyana | 03/21/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Bridget Cardigan (Diane Keaton) suddenly finds herself out of money and upper class home when her husband Don (Ted Danson) gets downsized from his company. Unable to find a job, and out of desperation, she takes a job as a janitor at the Federal Reserve Bank, and as soon as she lays eyes on the vast fortune sitting around locked in plain sight, she starts hatching a plan to liberate some of it.

Her ingenious and simple plan requires the help of two other people, and soon she persuades the reluctant Nina Brewster (Queen Latifah) and the ditsy Jackie Truman (Katie Holmes) to aid and abet her scheme to steal worn out bills before they get shredded.

All together now:

And the money kept rolling in from every side
Jackie's pretty hands reached out and they reached wide
Now you may feel it should have
been a conscience-pricking scheme
But that's not the point my friends
When the money keeps rolling in, you don't ask how
Think of all the people guaranteed a good time now
Bridget called the needy to her, opened up the doors
Never been a fund like the Federal Reserve Bank plan*

After a while, there are thoughts of calling it a day, but Bridget pushes hard for milking it for all it's worth.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)
1. The lack of money is the root of all scheming
2. People who live with poor spouses shouldn't clean banks
3. A dollar saved is a dollar earned
4. Don't throw the money out with the trash paper
5. Money changes everything
6. Two things are certain - theft and taxes


This is a light hearted comedy about three women from different backgrounds who come together to pull off an unlikely heist from a secure facility. Undeniably, there are more plot holes than plot, but who's counting? There are some funny moments, and some interesting twists, and even though the movie mostly misses the mark, Keaton and Latifah are as good as always. Wait for it on cable.




*Based on "And the Money Kept Rolling In (and Out)" - Andrew Lloyd Webber - "Evita"

Everyone Loves Money
Roberta Hotard | Somewhere here, Florida | 06/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mad Money a brainy scheme of 3 women Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah and Katie Holmes try to smuggle millions of worn out currency that is headed for the Federal Reserve shredder. This movie is full of laughs and excitement and most of all lots of Mad Money. This in my opinion is a must see. I enjoyed these 3 actresses who are my favorite so much I now own it."
Greatest Movie Since "Hanging Up!"

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Is anyone not glad that Diane Keaton is working again? Probably Mia Farrow, but not me. She is a delight from start to finish, and this movie is 100 brilliant, you better believe it.

Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah and Katie Holmes star as sisters who develop a money laundering scheme so genius and yet so heinous and grisly, that it left me both cheering them on and hiding my face behind my hands. But I must admit, even though I hate when laws are broken, when you get these three ladies together the only crime would be not laughing uproariously!

Of course Katie Holmes is in her element doing slapstick comedy, but I was surprised to see how well Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah were able to also adapt to the genre. That Queen Latifah is one sassy lady, I must say, and be prepared for plenty of sass when you watch this film.

When three sisters devise a money scheme this enchanting, the only thing that really gets stolen is your heart, as a moviegoer. After you see this movie, you will probably think ill of the government and your upbringing. It's hilarious!!!!"
