Mad Money

 mm.jpg Have you ever wondered what happens to old, used, and worn-out currency bills? Mad Money (2008) is a comedy movie that can help you learn about what the government does with all the used and damaged money.   

The movie is about three female employees of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City who are tempted by all the money being shredded arounded them. They start smuggling soon-to-be-destroyed currency out of the bank, and are so succesful at it they soon accumulate more money than they know what to do with. However, the long hands of the law catch up to them and puts an end to their operation. Of course, in typical Hollywood style, just when you thought you knew how the movie was going to end, there is a surprise twist to the story.
