One for the MoneyOne for the Money

Plot Summary

She’s going to get her man. Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl) is a bright, attractive, confident woman whose entire life has just taken a sudden turn – in the totally wrong direction. Newly divorced and recently laid off, the only work she can scrape up is a dead-end job at her sleazy cousin’s bail bond office. But when her first big assignment involves tracking down an on-the-lam ex-flame (Jason O’Mara), this tough-as-nails lady bounty hunter will be redefining the meaning of hot pursuit in this thrill-packed action comedy.

My take on this movie: So this would be my fifth or so time watching this movie. See this movie is really good. So off the bat I will say that it gets a rating of five stars but it also has it’s flaws. Most of the cast that was casted for their roles I never suspected. The person for Lula is awesome and the same for Grandma Mazur. But Morelli, Ranger, and Stephanie were not how I pictured in my head. Don’t get me wrong I love Katherine Heigl as an actress I just didn’t think that she worked well as Stephanie. But then again she is the only one that willingly went into a dumpster I heard so that is good enough for me.

I thought that this movie did really well especially for the first book in the Plum series but of course they didn’t advertise it well enough. Like how some of the other movies are in your face, this one wasn’t given the advertising like that at all which kind of made me mad. I mean this movie was good and it should have sequels. To me the only person that tried to put it out there was Janet Evanovich.

Oh well. This whole movie from beginning to end made me laugh and it was just really good. They did change some parts in the book for the movie but that is okay for me. I am glad though that they kept in the part where Grandma M shot the turkey that was really good. Everything about this movie is soo good and I don’t want to spoil any of it. If you haven’t seen it yet you should so totally go buy One for the Money and watch it.
