[Movie] Mad Money


Saw a bit of the trailor for this movie Mad Money day before on TV.. since then been thinking about watching it.. I love Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah... ofcourse, enjoy their movies... so thot why not...

Went online, saw that Satyam had the movies, checkd with mom if she wanted to come along, and booked tickets.. later on sis also joined in...[she bunked college..;)] We walked into Six degrees, a plush theater in Satyam cineplex and waited for the movie to begin... here's a bit about the movie...

Its a comedy about three ordinary women who form an unlikely friendship and decide to do something extraordinary—rob one of the most secure banks in the world.Another tit bit about Mad Money is that it is BASED ON A TRUE STORY.... woww... :)

Starring: Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah, Katie Holmes, Ted Danson, Stephen Root, Christopher McDonald, Adam Rothenberg, Roger Cross

Director: Callie Khouri

Bridget played by Diane Keaton is losing it when she realises they've got no money, and are gonna lose their home.. Her husband Don (Ted Danson) is joblesss n on the couch all day.She tries getting a job, with no luck till her maid offers to hook her up with a co. she knows... Ta da... she gets a job as a cleaning woman for the Federal Bank... eeeks...What would happen if you put a women who has no money in a place filled with money? yep, exactly.. she gets ideas and her brain gets wired... lolz...

She then gets close to Nina (Queen Latifah), a single mom who works in the shredding dept and with Jackie (Katie Holmes), a spunky girl grooving to music all the time who wheels carts loaded with money to the shredding dept... bridget comes up with a brainer, and decides to rob the bank of these worn out notes.... she schemes with the 2 girls and gets the ball rolling... the way they go about the whole operation is mind blowing.... the attn to detail and the way they stuff themselves before heading home... woww, u gotta watch the movie...

After a point, when Don says "enuf", bridget says "why, there is so much more waiting for us, lets continue".. and she decides to go ahead and continue their scam for as long as possible.. the instance where Nina's key falls into the drain and they are left without a key to a lock that they have put in place is kick asss... getting Jackie's bf on the phone, which leads to him gettting fired from his beef packing job... her throwing the gum in the elevator, and the dialogues between are sensational.. they have u in splits...






Do they get busted??? do they rob enuf and pay off all their dues? oh,well, lets just say they get away with it all , alive, and outta jail... phew...

The actresses are filled with charm,yes, the movie is unbelievable at times, but to think this actually happened is amazing...Queen Latifah as always is super smart, sweet when she realises she likes the security guard, and the way they go about their romance is cute... her love for her kids, fear that they will get put behind bars, and practical nature come out vividly... Katie is spunky,chirpy and adorable.. the plot she cooks to blow up the money is wakaooo...

As they say... Money rules.and it can make you do a lot of things you wouldnt do otherwise...
Go on, check out this movie and let me know... :)
