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.)
This movie is absolutely hysterical, in fact, I wonder if it could really be done.\n\nThe only drawback to the DVD is that Closed Captioning is not available. I am hard of hearing and without it I have to turn the volume up.
I have been looking for the movie theatre version of this movie for over a year. I do not want the Unrated version in my home. Finally, I found the PG-13 version on Walmart.com. It was a great price and arrived quickly. The movie speaks for itself- hilarious assuming you like this kind of humor.
It can't escape the crippling clichs of similar films that have come before it, and there are far too many Cameron Crowe-ian platitudes littered throughout the screenplay to remind us that we are indeed watching a movie.
