A film based on the incredibly popular Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich, One for the Money reveals an unexpectedly versatile Katherine Heigl. This model-turned-actress is best known for her role as Dr. Izzie Stevens on Grey's Anatomy and for starring in various lighthearted romantic comedies, but here Heigl takes on the meaty role of Plum, a laid-off lingerie buyer who turns bondswoman in a desperate attempt to pay the rent and put food on the table. Heigl is surprisingly believable as a blue-collar working girl who thinks fast on her feet and is not afraid to throw herself into the middle of even the most dangerous situation--especially if it means getting what she wants. Of course, Stephanie's impulsiveness manages to get her into all sorts of awkward and potentially life-threatening situations. Throw in her desire for payback against an old boyfriend, a sleazy cousin, a gang of ruthless criminals, a couple of most unexpected allies, and a quirky family who can think of little more than setting her up with a good husband, and you've got an enticing blend of drama, action, and comedy. Debbie Reynolds is quite funny as Grandma Mazur, Daniel Sunjata makes a great Ranger, and there's definitely a nice chemistry between Heigl and Jason O'Mara. Bonus features include an 11-minute making-of featurette, a 10-minute look at some real-life "bond girls," a gag reel, and one deleted scene. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Katherine Heigl stars as Stephanie Plum in this broad comedy, based on the best-selling novel from Janet Evanovich.

Detailed Synopsis
Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl) is a bright, attractive, confident woman whose entire life has just taken a sudden turn — in the 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequels, Please! January 27, 2012
Format:DVD
As a fan of the books, I was not expecting very much. You know how it is. Someone in Hollywood reads maybe a chapter and half and then goes to town and puts a ton of their own ideas in, changes names and does a real hack job on the book we all know and loved. This DID NOT happen here at all. The movie exceeded my expectations in every possible way.

The basic plot is that Stephanie Plum of Trenton New Jersey has recently (okay---six months ago) lost her job, has a bunch of bills and rent to pay and needs some fast cash. She blackmails her cousin Vinnie into giving her a job at his bail bonds business as a recovery agent (okay---bounty hunter). He'd prefer to just assign her the easier stuff (naked flasher ftas) but she wants to go after the big money, trenton cop, Joe Morelli, with whom Stephanie has shared some intimate moments (okay---one intimate moment)in the past.

I'm not going to spoil too much with this review, I'm just going to address the things that I would have wanted to know before going to see this film.

First, I was not very happy when Katherine Heigl was cast as Stephanie. I like her, but I don't think she is much of an actress. She was a great Izzie Stevens, but since then she has mostly played Izzie Stevens. But, surprisingly, she was goooood in this! She played Stephanie perfectly, and I will probably have more respect for her as an actress in the future. Stephanie herself grows up a little through the film. She becomes more assertive and she tries so hard and she remains cheerful no matter what sort of bad things happen to her. I don't think we could have recieved a better cinematic treatment of our favorite bounty hunter.

The other characters are great as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody relax! February 7, 2012
Format:DVD
Okay, so the casting doesn't meet your expectations. How can it? We all picture someone different in the roles. I wanted a sexier Ranger, a fatter Lula, a Danny DaVito for Vinny, and an Estelle Getty for Grandma Mazur. But all in all it was very enjoyable. I read a reviewer who said that Rex didn't seem to like Stephanie. Really? That's your review? The movie followed the book, the actors did a great job,and all Janet E fans will love this movie. Not every story has to have a tough modern woman as the lead. Morelli's last scene at Stef's front door put a smile on my face. Enjoy it for what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It!!! February 9, 2012
By Green
Format:DVD
I was given the first two books to read in March of 2011. I proceeded to read the other 14 books in 11 days. Then of course I had to wait until June and November to get books 17 & 18. But as soon as I got thru the books I was in love with them. I describe them as comedy crime. When I found out they were making a movie I couldn't have been more pleased. The cast was perfect for the movie. I saw it 4 times in theaters and can't wait for the DVD to come out. I hope that all the other PLUM Fans out there loved the movie. IT really did justice to the book, only modifiying a few things here and there. I hope that more movies are in the furture!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different from the book but lots of fun! May 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the book One for the Money (Movie Tie-in) (Stephanie Plum Novels) when it first came out. I grew up in New Jersey and knew a few blue collar types like those in the book. The only bit I really missed in the movie was Grandma's hanging out at the neighborhood mortuary so she could attend the viewings. As I recall she didn't care if she actually knew the person being viewed.

I think Katherine Heigl got the character of Stephanie Plum just about perfectly.

This could be a great HBO or FX series with the right cast and writers! I'm looking forward to something just as inventive!

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it, but didn't love it. May 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read lots of reviews, and hesitated to watch it, based on most of what I read. I did, however, adjust my expectations, and went into it without hoping for much. I can say, I wasn't disappointed. I like Katherine Heigl. She's quirky and fun, and I think she did right by this role. Ranger and Joe were perfectly cast, as well. And I LOVE the grandma - yes, she's a little crazier in the books, but I love that lady, nonetheless. All in all, don't listen to the critics. They're biased, and they always say the same thing: "formulaic romance...yada, yada, yada." They just don't know how to enjoy some fluff and some filler here and there. I enjoyed this movie. It was cute. And the chemistry between Heigl and O'Mara was spot-on. I rented it, as I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not, and while I might not buy it, I WILL watch it again if it is released for streaming on Netflix, AND if they make sequels, like I hope they will.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible! If you liked the book you'll hate the movie! November 29, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved the first twelve Plum books so I was hoping I would enjoy seeing the characters come to life on the silver screen but sadly that was not the case. My first issue is with the casting which is beyond awful! Katherine Heigl is terrible as Stephanie; she overplays in every scene and she is completely lacking in any kind of warmth which is one of Stephanie's trademark characteristics. (Let me clear, I am comparing Stephanie and all the characters to the way they were originally wonderfully written in books 1-12 before JE started letting her daughter and ghostwriter simply slap pages together)

Heigl has zero chemistry with the men in her life or with anyone else in the movie. Jason O'Mara is not a bad actor but he was miscast as Morelli. No one so blatantly and quirkily Irish should be portraying a macho Italian cop. Sunjata also fails as Ranger...he isn't good looking enough and he lacks any of Ranger's sensuality, quiet intelligence or strength. He also gets very little screentime in the film which won't make some fans (me included) happy. Grandma Mazur is too young, too well preserved and not eccentric enough. Mr. and Mrs. Plum seem off...she's grating and he's pointless; I just couldn't buy them in their roles.

The only characters who worked were Vinnie, Connie and Lula. The plot deviates from the book and not in a good way since it minimizes the suspense and makes the ending more anti-climatic. The sets were also lackluster...not gritty enough for Trenton.

"One for the Money" was a great book but it is a terrible disappointment as a movie.
