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.

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.

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

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.

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.

[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...

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

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.

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

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 force on earth is strong enough to unite an upper middle class suburban housewife, a poor African American single mother and a young, spaced out rock n' roll fan living in a trailer? Why, the opportunity to steal from the government, of course.

Mad Money, a sisters-in-greed heist comedy that's like Fun With Dick and Jane crossed with Set It Off, may be a formula flick, but as directed by Callie Khouri, it gives you a good, infectious dose of its heroines' money fe
