And that’s when a frivolous, surprisingly funny comedy like Mad Money actually has some relevancy because that’s the unfortunate mentality that so many of us embrace. Rather than being happy with what we’ve got, the pursuit of happiness isn’t complete without always wanting more—no matter what we have to forsake to get it. While most of us probably wouldn’t resort to stealing from the government, it reminded me of something Bridget said in the beginning:  “Anyone is capable of anything with the right motivation.” 

Now that’s a little scary, isn’t it?
 
CAUTIONS:

  • Drugs/Alcohol:  There are several references to what Jackie’s “on” because she’s so clearly in her own world. When going over the details of the heist, Bridget, Nina and Jackie meet at a bar for drinks.
  • Language/Profanity:  There are a smattering of standard-issue profanities, including instances of the Lord’s name taken in vain.
  • Sex/Nudity:  While there’s no actual sex scenes, that’s clearly where Nina and Barry are headed in one particular scene in a closet. Plus, Nina has a penchant for wearing cleavage-revealing shirts that causes much discussion by her male co-workers. When the ladies steal the money, they stuff it down their underwear, which are shown in one scene. Jackie’s husband’s bare bottom is shown for laughs in one scene.
  • Violence:  Only of the comic variety.
