When you put Diane Keaton in a movie along with Queen Latifah, you are going to get some laughs. Ted Danson and Katie Holmes have their moments too. Although very funny at times, “Mad Money” misses the mark in the sex and language categories, and unfortunately the partners in crime show no remorse for their sins. There is also a “mooning” scene by one character who drops his pants to the Feds. The character of Jackie (Holmes) does show concern for Nina’s kids when prison time begins to look like a real possibility.
This film could have been a funny family film had the content issues mentioned been toned down. Unfortunately, as the characters in this film always want a little bit more, I wanted this movie to be more family-friendly. We cannot award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to the film.
