 plays an upper middle-class wife whose husband () is downsized by the recession and spends months unable to get another job. Swimming in debt and in danger of losing her beautiful house, Keaton gets the only job she can, as a janitor for the federal reserve bank and while there notices that her new pal  has the job of shredding old paper money that is replaced by newer bills. Taking rocker  (unconvincingly cast) into their fold, the three women come up with a scheme to keep the old money for themselves and do a good job of it, pulling off a number of heists before things start to go awry and they are in danger of getting caught. Despite a fun premise and a terrific cast, this stinker by Callie Khouri has quite a lot going against it: namely that it is a comedy that is never funny, and includes multiple heists that are never actually tense or exciting. The whole thing is a washout, not even worth watching for the cast.
