Storyline

This is the story of a twelve-year-old named Maddy. Maddy and her adventurous father have always shared a love for mountain climbing. Their hobby, however, has a disastrous effect when a devastating accident on Mount Everest injures his spine, paralyzing him forever--unless he gets a very expensive operation. Determined to procure the money to pay for his surgery, Maddy decides to recruit two of her friends, a computer genius and a mechanical whiz kid, to help her pull off a risky heist. They plan to break into the local super-high-tech bank, which holds a vault suspended 100 feet off the floor, and get to its safe. To complicate matters even further, Maddy's mother works as the security chief at that very bank. Regardless of what obstacles she faces, Maddy is determined to get to the funds her father needs, by using the amazing climbing skills he taught her.

Trivia

When the three kids are changing to go into the party at the bank, the director was going to have Austin kiss Maddie's neck, but he decided to cut it out. See more »

Goofs

When Maddy keys in the password "DENIRO", she only presses the numeric-type keypad a few times. In fact, using roll-to-next alpha entry, she would have had to press the same key several times (or hold it down) to roll the letters. See more »

If you suspend reality it is good and watchable
5 January 2008 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

As long as you don't apply any real caper rules to this then it's fun.

The idea of kids robbing a bank and using their ingenuity to do it has to be immensely appealing to young teenagers, and the results on that basis are fine.

The back story - robbing the bank to pay for the father's surgery - is well handled, and overall it is a positive movie for girls - Kristen Stewart, who plays Maddy is definitely the leader and for this alone it makes it a better than normal teen movie.

Your kids can watch this without being corrupted; it's just a fun heist / caper movie that will keep the whole family entertained.
