Earlier version of the current movie, "Mad Money"
25 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie on TV (in Canada) because it's advertised storyline seemed to be the same as a currently playing movie, "Mad Money" (with Diane Keaton & Queen Latifah). It was much more enjoyable than I expected it to be. It is a real relief from all the super-hi-tech heist movies of today.

Some people deplore the depiction of crooks as heroes, but that's what heist movies do--make you cheer the bad guys and boo the good guys. If you don't want to do that, don't go. I think it just shows how easily we can change our view of good and bad. And this film does a masterful job. The characters are real, serious, funny, sympathetic.

Now, I can't wait to see "Mad Money" and compare the two: old & new, black/white & color, TV movie & screen movie, British & American.
