    Critics Pan Katie Holmes in Mad Money
    Friday January 18, 2008

    Katie Holmes arrives at the "Mad Money" premiere at Mann Village Theater on January 9, 2008 in Westwood, CA.

    Kate Holmes is getting harsh reactions from critics in her first return to the big screen since wedding Tom Cruise and welcoming daughter Suri.
    “And the cinematic comeback of the year award goes to…somebody other than Katie Holmes,” says a New York Post critic, who calls her new heist comedy Mad Money, co-starring Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton, “the most cringe-making return since Love Boat: The Next Wave.
    “Holmes, with Alice Cooper hair and crazy Jim Carrey eyes, looks terrible and acts worse, unless this movie is unintentionally a lobotomy documentary,” the reviewer writes. “Whatever could have happened to her in the last couple of years to zap the talent out of her like this?”
    The New York Times says Holmes is “the movie’s weakest link.”
    Variety adds that throughout the film “Holmes is awkwardly upsetting the balance” between Latifah and Keaton.
    “Their heist is only the pretext for jinks that range from medium high (as played out by Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton) to painfully low (as perpetrated by Katie Holmes, who pops her eyes, scrunches her nose and shakes her booty in lieu of acting),” writes the Wall Street Journal.

    I actually saw a bit of her on Live with Regis and Kelly, I think that's what it was anyway, and the interview felt like it was in slow motion. She's not dynamic at all, and seemed to be on sedatives. The clip from the movie was dumb, apparently Kat(i)e's character is some idiot-savant, dimwitted enough that she can't count with other people talking, but she can do instant calculations to the cent in her head. Har har? I think Mad Money is going to be a money trap.

    uh, she was never good at acting. she got booted from the batman sequel because she sucked so badly. she was the weakest link in that movie too.

    She looks pretty in the pic above, BUT she also looks like she's in her mid-late 30s

    This writer better watch out. The Co$ will certainly pay a visit for comments like this.

    Exactly.

    In Dawson she played herself so I guess it worked.

    She was horrible in Batman.

    I really don't know anyone who is interested enough to pay $10 + to see this film.

    It is the oddest casting; Queen Latifah, Katie Holmes and Diane Keaton?? What were the producers thinking? The whole concept of the film is dumb and dated, too.

    Actually she was offered the role and turned it down. So I've read.

    Can we all agree that the only reason she's GOT an acting career is because she's pretty? The best thing she could have done to make money was to hop aboard the Cruise, because in 10 years time she'd have only made pennies on her own talent.

    Someone should run over this freaking Scientologist bitch with a bus, and do the same thing to Thetan Tom.

    I've read both, and I believe she was booted. She sucked, sucked, SUCKED in Batman Begins. She was distractingly horrible.
