It's just a lot more sane and tame than its 'mad' title would have you believe.

There is little suspense, no true danger; their plan is simple, the complications are few, and they don't get excited much beyond some high-fives and hugs and giggles.

Mad 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.

[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.

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

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.)

How about a little creativity, like maybe wadding up and flushing the bills down the toilet, to be picked up later in the sewer? The movie makes robbing the Fed look about as tough as finding an episode of Full House on TV.

[An] improbable and generally unfunny comedy.

Somewhat surprising that it's not nearly as awful as it could have been, but tragic to watch Diane Keaton's career continue its path into embarrassing roles that undermine her acting talent.

It's not bad, but it's not particularly good, either.

Glenn Gers' script is peppered with a few funny lines but never takes full advantage of the premise's comedic potential.

Save your money so you don't get mad that you spent it on this.

Mad Money opens with the sight of an enormous pile of hundred dollar bills, and that's roughly what it would take to make me once again sit through this dim-witted caper.

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

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

Could Mad Money kill Katie Holmes career? Only Queen Latifah walks off unscathed.

Think of Mad Money as Ocean's Eleven with more estrogen, less glittery metropolis appeal, and Queen Latifah. It's not a waste of time. It just feels like it.

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

...if it were this easy to rob the Fed, the dollar wouldn't be worth the paper [Glenn] Gers' script is printed on.
