Consensus: A laborious, unfunny and implausible heist film.

Amy Nicholson
Boxoffice Magazine

The latest vibrato performance of Diane Keaton's late career shame has her playing once-wealthy housewife Bridget Cardigan, whose twee name and dithering hysteria are equally insufferable.

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.

Louise Keller

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.

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.)

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

Keaton, Latifah and Holmes have appealing chemistry, although it's not enough to sustain a too-long 104 minute running time.

It's better than I expected it to be.

Moviegoers will come up empty.

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.

It's very engaging (if you know what I mean). I couldn't take my attention off (you know those tiny breaks you take during movie). Nice.

I was surprised I could actually sit through this one, it looked so bad! Actually, it was a decent enough movie. I don't think I'd watch it again,… More

Pretty good and smart. The film begins close to the end of the story, when the suspects get caught and are interrogated. Then it flashes back to three years… More

Perfectly palatable as long as you don't expect it to make complete sense. I never understood why everybody hates Katie Holmes so much, and Queen Latifah… More

I thought it was cute. Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah, and Katie Holmes were absolutely adorable together and had great chemistry. They made the story an… More
