So I must confess, I was really surprised when I visited the movie website of Mad Money…for some reason I just wasn’t expecting it to be good a site…but right from the moment the webpage started opening – with a great dollar bill image – I knew my expectations were too low! This website is actually pretty good! The site is pretty fun – dollar bills fall down across your screen in front of the faces of Queen Latifah, Katie Holmes, and Diane Keaton as you surf around. Some of them have a green glow around them – click on them and you’ll get all sorts of interesting facts about money. If you’re really interested in winning money (instead of reading about it), try clicking on the promotions or sweepstakes links to enter the Mad Money Sweepstakes (pick the key that will unlock the case in order to be entered to win the prize). While you’re at the site you can also find out about the film and cast, what the trailer, and see some movie stills…you can also get profiles on the movie characters – sweet cooky Jackie, single mom Nina, and middle-class Bridget. The most interesting part of the website however is probably the Cash Chronicles section where you can click on “Add your Cash Chronicle” to share with everyone how you would spend your money if you won the lottery or somehow came into some big bucks. It’s fun reading through what people wrote – Brain surgery, pay off debts, help parents, and even pay it forward. Before you leave, dont forget to pick up your mad money wallpaper, screensaver and buddy icons! Now let’s see, how would I spend my mad money?….
