''EZ Money'' is a 2005 DirectToVideo kid flick based around the FourOneNineScam, known colloquially as the Nigerian e-mail scam. The premise revolves around a young girl, Molly, who while briefly left alone at the principal's office at school, intercepts a Nigerian scam e-mail to her principal and forwards it to her own account. What follows is a [[HilarityEnsues madcap sequence of events]] as she tries to get rich off the scheme and a freak power surge causes the money to become inaccessible to both her and the scammers, leading them to travel all the way to America and kidnap her sister in order to try to get the money back. And yes, the whole thing is just a bizarre as it sounds. A review of the film, with a decent explanation of the film's plot (weird as it is) without any major spoilers, can be found [[http://web.archive.org/web/20130205112133/http://www.the-trades.com/article.php?id=4708 here]].
