Mad Money Reviews

Louise Keller
Urban Cinefile

A madcap heist movie with a delectable cast who realise that while money can't buy happiness, it sure as hell can buy everything else.

Keaton, Latifah and Holmes have appealing chemistry, although it's not enough to sustain a too-long 104 minute running time.

If you're thinking that there's not much point in rooting for these ballsy babes all the way because in the end crime doesn't pay, think again, sorta. Because even after they're caught, the fun is really just beginning.

Provided you can get past its improbable premise, this madcap crime caper's trio of talented leading ladies manage to provide enough moments of mirth to make the rest of this raucous romp worthwhile.

[T]he gap between [Thelma & Louise] and Mad Money resembles the abyss that Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis drove into in Khouri's earlier hit.

Khouri parece ter deixado no passado qualquer interesse em criar personagens tridimensionais ou minimamente interessantes.

Comedy is difficult, but it seems like Mad Money didn't even try. It's very hard to find the jokes.

Let's Not Listen

Keaton and Latifah lend enough intelligence, wit, and charm to their characters that Mad Money often feels like an ovarian Ocean's Eleven.

Monsters and Critics

A few badly conceived scenes and misused actors cannot completely negate the positive message of this situation comedy. Diane Keaton deserves better, but lives to laugh another day.

Austin Chronicle

Just when I thought there was no way a movie like this could possibly show me anything new, Money goes and makes Ivan Boesky out of Annie Hall, paints redemption green, and paves the road to heaven with gold. Color me surprised.

"Ocean's Eleven" if it were geared to the drones at the Oprah Winfrey book club...

Boxoffice Magazine

The latest vibrato performance of Diane Keaton's late career shame has her playing once-wealthy housewife Bridget Cardigan, whose twee name and dithering hysteria are equally insufferable.

While being a serviceable, somewhat female-empowering bank-heist comedy, Mad Money doesn't do much else to distinguish itself.

[W]orks... as bright, cheery, satisfying fantasy, if a mere trifle of a passing fancy. And it works, too, as a celebration of female don't-ignore-us indignation...

There's an old saying: 'I wrote you a long letter because I didn't have time to write a short one.' In the case of Mad Money, I'll write a short review because the movie won't sustain a long one. (It barely sustains itself.)
