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.

Earlier this year, I came across a DVD 10 pack of a bunch of cheap family movies. The pack itself was cheap, so I bought it, since it seemed like a pretty good deal and I love watching bad movies. Now, with the kind of movies they were advertising on the cover, I expected them to be the movies that are enjoyably bad. While some of them are so far, this one is not.
This movie sucks. It features horrible acting, a plot that makes little sense, it's all over the place, and it was even dragging at times. This didn't feel like one movie, it felt like a billion movie ideas rolled into one. I'm serious. So much is going on in this movie. We have the money scam plot, the disconnected family plot, a buddy cop movie plot, and a kidnapping plot. And at times, it feels like they didn't know what to do, so they just filmed random scenes. The editing is all over the place. One moment, we'll be focusing on the little girl while another moment, we'll cut to that cop guy and that agent.
The only thing that was enjoyable about this film was that agent guy. His acting was so hammy that it was fun to watch.
Avoid this movie. It might make your brain explode.
