A movie for laughs and just plain fun.

Finding movies that are funny without all the foul language and embarrassing scenes is nigh impossible. But every now and then you do find one. My latest discovery was Mad Money.

 

This 2008 release is one that will keep you guessing what is up next and give you lots of laughs. The whole storyline centers around an upper-middle class couple, played by Diane Keaton and Ted Dansen, who have fallen upon hard times in this bad economy. The wife who has done nothing more than bake a few cookies and host fabulous parties now has to get a job. Of all the jobs out there, she ends up as a janitor at the Federal Reserve.

 

She might be out of the social scene but her crafty mind that was shaped moving through the circles of society has not lost its touch. She begins to see a loophole in the security system of the Reserve. With just the right people she could solve all their money problems. But help is needed.

 

So, the former socialite chooses women played by Queen Latifah and Katie Holmes to help her carry out her plans. Latifah plays a single mother trying to make ends met. Holmes is a flighty young woman who makes you wonder if the plan is going to work.

 

With a little creativity and genius, they begin to sneak the money out. Their triumph is dampened as they realize that they cannot be spending it like crazy. They have to keep getting past the guards, keep the secret from their friends, and pray that the Feds don’t find out.

 

You will find yourself laughing as Holmes dances through the federal hallways, Latifah’s guilty conscience almost gives her away, and gasp as the keys are dropped and guards get suspicious. As the officials start to get smart, you begin to root for the thieves. But how it ends will surprise you.

 

Rent this movie and have a good laugh. The casting is great as each actor brings a realistic perspective to the roles.

 

Note: This movie review was not solicited. The author rented the movie on her own accord and funding.
