What Were the Critics Thinking?,
This review is from: One For the Money (DVD)
All the supposed story "flaws" the critics blamed on the screenwriters and Ms. Heigl are in the original novel. Including the narration. If "One for the Money" has a flaw, it's that it is too faithful to its bestselling source. INCREDIBLY faithful.
True, this flick would have probably played better on HBO or Showtime, but that's only because it is low on explosions and high on old fashioned storytelling--just the opposite of today's usual theatrical popcorn flick. And Heigl is as charming as ever. Too bad wrongheaded critics gang-jumped the film during its theatrical run and destroyed any chance it had for sequels. Then again, if Heigl would return to TV--cable TV that is--then perhaps we could have more Plum fun.
