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.

New low in irresponsible film making
6 February 2004 | by (Utah, USA) – See all my reviews

Even most adult heist films show that there are consequences for lying, stealing, and endangering the lives of others. But when 12-year-old Maddy engages in all these thing and more in order to rob a bank (for which her mom designed the security system), the slow-witted adults around her are admiring and awed by her nobility. The entire plot premise - Maddy's family can't afford an expensive operation for her dad - is cheap enough to be insulting. Your kids need to see this movie if you want them to learn that: *All authority is bad (not to mention idiotic). *Cops are evil - don't trust them. *It's okay to lie to your parents. *It's okay to lie to your friends. *You're never to young to use sex as a tool to get what you want. *Putting the toddlers you babysit in deadly danger is funny. *All of these are admirable if you come up with the cash. On the positive side, this movie is very entertaining on an 8-year-old level, and I'm sure most children will enjoy it.
