Mad Money> proves both fresh and funny and, in an odd way, uplifting in its moral ambiguity.

It's one of the most general movies I've seen in a while: generally entertaining, generally watchable, generally unremarkable.

[A] pointless payday for director Khourie's banal blank check comedy...a straining pseudo-hysterical heist flick that has all the giddy appeal of an empty bank draft.

Queen Latifah seems to be going through the whole movie with the attitude of 'Yeah, I know%u2026'

Neither clever nor engaging enough to work as a celebration of either larcenous cunning or womanly feistiness.

Mad Money isn't intense, action-oriented nor will it win any Oscars. Still, in times when the economy and politics weight heavy on our minds, it's a great hour-and-a-half escape.

It's mediocre, but it's not obnoxiously so. I had an okay time. But I had also had five beers.

This movie is designed to be fun, and its intentions are signaled to us over and over again, as when the women jump around on a bed, giggling and flinging old, dirty money around in a wanton display of pure idiocy.

Speaking of recycling, this script by Glenn Gers reeks of it and not in a healthy, eco-minded way.

It's not that much fun.

Whenever there's stunt-movie casting with divergent generations of Hollywood "stars," there's bound to be trouble at the multiplex.

Whatever critique of desire and greed the original script intended is lost amid all the bland good times.

Mad Money is small change that somehow manages to add up to a satisfying sum.

It's not bad, but it's not particularly good, either.
January 18, 2008
This is an odd, disposable movie; it melts away as you leave the theater, leaving nothing but vague dissatisfaction behind.

It's just OK, one of those decent little movies that get released in January.

What's not to believe? A lot. But asking for bolted logic and dramatic structure in such a movie is about like asking former Fed chief Alan Greenspan to open a mosh pit in Miami. Anyway, the money in the bank here is Keaton.

Much of the film is predictable. But to its credit, it doesn't present the men in the women's lives as the usual losers who drive them to crime.

What's intended as empathy feels more like condescension, built around Hollywood's out-of-touch belief that anything below Land Rover is the poverty line.
