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.

This is a funny film by a guy who is making films totally independent from Hollywood. I think the premise is cleaver and the acting smart. My kids are using the lines when we go out to eat and I over hear them playing the roles. My kids are 6 and 8 and very computer savvy, so they got it. This was shot in what looks like a crew person's house and I'm sure around the town. How they got the Jet, I would like to know. This film uses a lot of the actors that have been in his others films which is kind of fun to see. Is this the best movie you'll ever see, no but it's a good fast paced flick and a very cleaver story. Who would have thought somebody would make a movie about that Nigerian e-mail scam. This guys did it and did it well.
