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. Written by

When Maddy gets stuck babysitting Max and brings him to the go cart track, we see him walking. Kristen Stewart tried to pick him up before they started filming the scene but the baby didn't want to be picked up. See more »
Toward the end when Maddy is climbing toward the safe while dangling from the bars, she continues to advance along the bars and can be seen half way across, but in the long shot from beneath she is still at the first two bars. See more »

Austin, maybe she'd listen to you.
That would be a first.

Stark Sands's character is clearly referred to as Chad in the movie, but when the cast list comes up, he's credited as "Brad". See more »
Immensely enjoyable caper with sympathetic as well as adventurer kids
A young girl (Kristen Stewart) and her two teen friends pull off a bank heist for obtaining the cash needed for the operating her ill daddy (Sam Robards) where their mild-mannered mummy (Jennifer Beals) works as a security agent . They encounter complications with a humorous and botcher pair agents (James LeGros) in a robbery developed with imposing tension and intrigue ; it's , of course , the highlight and great climax of the movie . Thus , during the burgle the teens confront perils and risks as high-tech systems , vigilance dogs and she will raise a vault suspended many feet above ground (similar to Tom Cruise in Mission impossible) with the aim to take million of dollars from the safe .
The picture displays comedy , action , enjoyable humor and continuous entertainment . Besides , galore kart chases with impressive velocities and pursuits by police cars . The film is a crossover of ¨Topkapi¨ caper, ¨Ocean's eleven¨ heist pirouette and ¨Italian job¨ races but wrapped in adolescent style . Likable acting from Kristen Stewart , Jennifer Beals and Max Thieriot's film debut . The picture contains a lively and jolly musical score by George S. Clinton . The movie was regularly directed by Bart Freudlich and turned out to be a remake of a Danish hit smash titled Klatretøsen . It's a great stuff for schoolboys of all ages though especially for kids and teenagers .
