A mischievous nine-year-old girl's quick and simple get-rich-quick scheme hits an unexpected hitch when she incurs the wrath of a powerful gangster who is determined to hold onto his money in director Dan T. Hall's fast-paced family comedy. Molly Thompson has been sent to the principal's office yet again. A computer savvy pre-teen with a terminal case of curiosity, Molly intercepts an e-mail from a supposed Nigerian diplomat offering $3 million to anyone who can help him transport some stolen funds. When Molly combines her keen business sense with her nine-year-old brother Alex's killer skills at the keyboard, it appears as if the entrepreneurial siblings have netted their first cool million. Their celebration is cut somewhat short, however, upon learning that the fraudulent e-mail was not actually from a Nigerian diplomat in genuine need of help, but an international mobster whose clever scheme has pulled in piles of cash. As with any self-respecting gangster, this malicious Mafioso ... Written by

My son was hoping that this was going to be a "kids with money" movie but the kids never did get the money or have any fun because the bad guys instantly found them...
Anyway...I don't know why the director packed so many people in the movie but it was really distracting to the story line like some guy that gets shocked in a phone booth.
I came to IMDb to see the actors but the majority of them are not credited...probably for a reason.
We did have a good time about 1/2 way through laughing at the ridiculous situations. Watch for the "Dun.Dun.Dun." blue door shot...the blood "effect" hanging in the air...Nigerian white woman with the Transylvanian accent...a woman going to work when her niece has been kidnapped...the snarling "poodle" (same shot 4 times).
If you want a low budget attack-of-the-killer-tomatoes type movie, you might like it.
