Queenpins, Comedy, Crime, Movie Review by Rawlins, Rawlins GLAM, Rawlins Lifestyle

The movie starts with a team of police officials bursting into Connie's room and arresting here. And then the flashback begins.

A year earlier, as she is jobless, Connie starts saving money using coupons. She needs to save money as she wants to conceive again, after her first try failed, and she and her husband is still paying off that debts. Rick, her husband is unsupportive and wants Connie to start getting a real job. 

Jojo, her best friend, is making Youtube videos to also generate income, since she couldn't secure proper employment since her identity was stolen. 

One day, after a frustrating day shopping using her coupon, Connie writes a complaint letter about the product. And soon, she received a coupon for a free box of cereal. That gives her idea to write more letters just to receive more free coupons.

As befits human nature, once is never enough. The women did a little research and learned that all the coupons come from a factory in Mexico. Then a plan comes up - the women will collect all the unwanted coupons and redistribute them to other women in their hometown.

The women recruited a couple working in the factory to send them the unused coupons. The women start their own website 'Savvy Super Saver' to promote the coupons and start generating profit.

When too many coupons are being cashed and most are expired, Ken Miller, an agent investigates coupon fraud, finds it disturbing and starts investigating the origin of the coupons. He annoys his superiors and decides to report it to the higher authority - FBI but no one takes him seriously.

The website becomes very popular and due to suspicious activity (too many transactions), the ladies' account is frozen. They turn to the hacker that stole Jojo's identify to unfreeze their account. The hacker, Tina teaches them how to manage their business and keep their money secure, with some percentage of the profit cut goes to Tina. 

They keep their business low-key for six months and when the time is due, they decide to spend and clean their money. They start buying lavish items and live a lavish lifestyle - behind closed doors. None of their family members know about their business and the items they bought. 

Will they continue to build their empire without the authority knowing?
