We ..can dream can't we..?

This movie ...awe .. What a delicious comedy ..the three leading ladies are Smart,witty and gutsy. I believe that this is an updated version of the 1980 movie. "How To Beat the High cost of Living" that starred "Susan St James, Jane Curtain and Jessica Lange"..? First of all who doesn't dream of committing some knid of "Work related heist"..? First of all ..I wouldn't recommend it.. because that money is property of the Federal government and lastly rotting away in club fed ..isn't worth it..! The story line is fabulous and the coupling of the actor's like a glove. In the beginning the theft's are's only when they get .... more impulsive to ..STEAL ..more that they become suspect.. ? Has someone ever been able to pull off a theft this size before..? Yes ..back in the 1990's some Brink's Employees stole million's in cash ..they too got caught..! Ms. Keaton does a great job playing a high living house wife ..who's husband's debt's send's her to working at the Treasury department..because her maid can't secure work due to her criminal record.. The fact that she could convince "Queen Latifah's" character ,then Katie Holmes character into joining along in the risky endeavor is absolutely hilarious.. This is a must see ...for the family and friends... By the way ..I had the pleasure of meeting Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah many years ago in Los Angeles,Ca.. Both lovely ladies and extreme talents in the industry of film making..

This movie is mad, madly entertaining!

This is a light hearted Comedy about three women who work with the US Treasury destroying over used Bills. It stars Diane Keaton, Katie Holmes, and Queen Latifah and Ted Danson. This movie is perfect for the hard financial times we all seem to be going through lately. **SPOILER** Ted Danson’s character loses his job due to down sizing and Diane Keaton has to go back to work after many years out of the work force. The only job she can get is a janitor at the Federal Reserve Bank. There she meets Katie Holmes and Queen Latifah’s characters. Diane Keaton comes up with a plan to steal the money being destroyed. And then the fun begins. Grab a bowl of popcorn, a favorite drink and have a couple of hours of escape. I highly recommend this Movie.

❤️ Really enjoy this movie. Who doesn’t? Purchased digitally with no issues. I keep it on my Fire Tablet set at “good” quality. Outstanding viewing without flaws.
On a side note... If you’re having problems with digital purchases., try. re-downloading it, make sure to clear the cache and check your Wi-Fi. As sometimes the quality may be poor if the first download was done when your WiFi was poor.And if your cache is not cleared it does make a difference. Same with computer and Fire Stick (Per my experience)

I haven’t seen a difference between better and beat quality. Excellent purchase! Excellent value! I’m happy 😊

Funny, smart...Part of my regular movie diet.

Love the cast and characters. Three strong women from different backgrounds that come together to pull off the greatest heist that never happened. I enjoy that this movie also has a strong cast of male characters, but they aren't portrayed as dumb dupes or lumbering apes. They are all good men, but in supporting roles. I have watched this movie many times and will continue to for years to come.

Doesn't deliver (humor, interesting story)
Verified purchase
I passed on this movie for quite some time, but covid-19 is making me desperate. I love the Queen and I unfortunately trusted the high number of stars indicating this movie would be worthwhile. I'm not as eloquent as some of the reviewers I've read before now writing mine, but trust them, this movie is a bomb and not worth the time it takes to watch.

So Tempting
Verified purchase
This movie was a delight. Due to downsizing, Diane Keaton's hubby, Ted Danson has lost his job. They have been used to living the good life. Overwhelmed by debt, she finds a job at the U.S. TREASURY in Kansas City. There, she devises a plot to "recycle" the used money rather than see it shredded everyday instead. Katie Holms and Queen Latifah are her partners in crime and they begin to "recyle", Keaton's word for "steal" money each day from work but plan to do so only until they are all back on their feet again...NOT. I kept commenting to my husband that I could NEVER work in such a place. The desire to "recycle" thousands of dollars daily would just be too tempting!!!
