Mad Money

Mad Money ★½ 2008 (PG-13)

Bridget (Keaton), a middle-class wife and mother, is in trouble when her husband (Danson) is downsized and her comfortable home and lifestyle are threatened. The only job she can find is as a janitor at the Federal Reserve Bank, where she forges unlikely friendships with single mom Nina (Queen Latifah) and young dreamer Jackie (Holmes). Of course, the women aren't content in their menial positions and find, ahem, an opportunity to even the score. Reluctant at first, Nina and Jackie end up following Bridget's lead, and the gals hatch a scheme to “recycle” (i.e., steal) old, out-of-circulation bills that are about to be destroyed anyway. What can it hurt? Bridget gets greedy and the plan starts to fall apart, but no matter, the fizzling silliness continues in this madcap caper that's just a little too mad. 104m/C DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

The Chicago Manual of Style

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
