A woman who was used to the finer things in life is suddenly thrust back into the work force after her husband gets downsized in writer/director Callie Khouri's (Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood) American adaptation of the hit British comedy Hot Money. Faced with the prospect of losing her home as her debt begins to mount, posh housewife Bridget (Diane Keaton) accepts a job on the midnight cleaning crew at a local branch of the Federal Reserve Bank. When the growing temptation of the cash that surrounds her night after night ultimately proves too powerful to resist, Bridget teams with two of the other cleaners for a criminal exercise in creative moneymaking. Queen Latifah and Katie Holmes co-star in a crime comedy inspired by actual events. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Timely, Mainstream Fun by talltale May 15, 2008 - 1:31 PM PDT
Reviews were so lousy for MAD MONEY that I almost said no. Glad I didn't, because the cast does a good job and the writing and direction are OK, too. Diane Keaton comes back from her worst-ever performance in "Because I Said So" and graces this one with her usual off-kilter charm and grounded intelligence. Katie Holmes and Queen Latifah are fine, too, as are all the men (in supporting roles). No great shakes, for sure, but its relatively clever plot keeps "Mad Money" entertaining -- and keeps you chuckling off and on as it comes up with a number a timely one-liners.
