Movie Media: Mad Money - Poster, Trailer

Recently, I had the opportunity to see a new heist film from director Sidney Lumet. That film (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead) took the genre and attempted to bring somethin different to the table, and it worked, to an extent. Now we have Mad Money which brings Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah, and Katie Holmes together in what appears to be a comedic bent on the standard heist film. The difference here is the targeting of the female audience. The trailer looks decent, Keaton and Latifah both have great screen charisma, while Holmes is still largely untested. It will be interesting to see if this works.
