One for the money not one for the record book,
This review is from: One For the Money (DVD)
One for the Money, a movie based one Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, is a medium to good movie. At 1 1/2 hours it is too short and leaves much of the humor of the novels (which had me laughing myself off whatever chair I was sitting in) out of this movie. It would have been better to have a longer movie with the humor in it. Heigl does a very good Stephanie Plum, as well as O'Mara in the role of Morelli. Sunjata lacked the charisma of Ranger, a role better suited to someone like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. I'll look forward to any sequels, hopefully better done than "One". All problems aside, it was still a diverting little movie that didn't make me consider suing someone to get the 90 minutes back. :-)

I agree about "The Rock", I couldn't quite put my finger on who should have played Ranger until I read your review.

Thank you. I have been a fan of the books for 12+ years. The description of Ranger in them seemed to suit "The Rock" even then. Hopefully if there's a sequel, they'll recast Ranger.
