Mad Money

They're having the crime of their lives...


Mad Money
After her wealthy husband gets laid off, a woman takes a low-level job at one of the Federal Reserve Banks. Part of her job involves destroying old bank notes, and she gets to thinking... She hooks up two accomplices, and together, they help themselves to some of the cash. One thing leads to another, and before they know it, they're stealing more than they can handle... and things are getting riskier by the day. The film is a Hollywood remake of a British made-for-television comedy.

Megan Kakora quote iconIt might not be the best of heist movies, but it's perfect for an enjoyable girls' night out.

Roger Ebert quote iconhe bottom line is some girls will like it, the men not so much.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconMad Money is a comedy caper where the caper's not interesting and the comedy's not funny. Take away those elements and all that's left is a tepid female buddy movie and, like its male counterparts, we've had enough of those to choke a critic.

quote iconMad Money will likely make discerning viewers feel that the title represents the flushing of their greenbacks down the proverbial John.
