This was a fun film and entertained us on a cold and wet evening. As usual Katherine was fun and made the film light hearted if a bit unbelievable. The sort of film to watch again.

Unfortunately this film seems to have received a lot of bad reviews/press, I honestly can't figure out why as it's funny, smart and follows the book as far as is possible when transferring from Book to Film, but they have even gone into detail of showing Stephanie's favourite Pizza Restaurant Pino's in her phone when scrolling through, and of course you get to see Rex the hamster!
I've been a fan of the Stephanie Plum books for many years and was equally excited/apprehensive when I heard a film was coming out as you never know how it will transfer, I left the cinema happy and can't wait to see the film again which is why I pre-ordered it as soon as I was able to on Amazon!

Charming and lighthearted this is one for the boys too. Katherine Heigl is perfectly cast as Stephanie Plum, a New Jersy divorcee who loses her job and her car and seeks a new career with her cousin Vinnie. Vinnie however is a bail bondsman and her new job is as a bounty hunter chasing bail jumpers. She takes on the workload of an experienced hunter who is off sick and finds his plum case is a former love interest of hers played by Jason O'Mara. Heigl in this girl next door type role is far more attractive than her IMDB mugshot suggests and she plays the role with charm and humour. This film won't make you laugh out loud or gasp with excitement but it is a very entertaining 90 minutes which you won't regret spending.

This is a good adaptation of the novel with great characterisation by the actors. I enjoy reading the books and was wary of any film adaptation, but this works well.

My friend and I are avid Stephanie Plum fans and had been looking forward to this film for a very long time. We had both heard the bad reviews so went to see it prepared to be disappointed. However, I can honestly say we enjoyed it a lot. Perhaps it was because we weren't expecting much but we liked it. It could have been brilliant but I can't put my finger on what exactly was wrong. Something didn't quite work, perhaps it was a chemistry thing. If you want to watch something light and fun then you should like this. The books are brilliant fun and I'd recommend those whole-heartedly.

This film is exactly what you would get if someone sat down and said: "What if we reversed the roles in 'The Bounty Hunter?' What if Jennifer Aniston's character was chasing Gerard Butler's???"
A sweet, slightly inept ex-lingerie saleswoman (Heigl as 'Stephanie Plum') goes on the hunt for an ex who has skipped bail, with the aid of a hunky fellow bounty hunter and a couple of bubbly (and funny) prostitutes. Needless to say, the film plays up the comedy and the romantic angles, while milking some good laughs from the entertainingly silly characters and the lead's constant errors.
Essentially what guys could refer to as a 'chick-flick action movie', it's feelgood fun in which you pretty much know everything that's going to happen before it does, but the journey is still light and amusing.
If you're a stickler for continuity and accuracy, steer well clear. Despite the fact that the script has characters point out at least twice that Stephanie's carrying a 5-shot revolver, there are several times where she empties at least 7-8 shots out of it without reloading. Similarly there's a moment where the characters hear shots and run to a location only a 5-minute jog away only for it to have suddenly gone from bright afternoon to pitch-black night in such a hilarious continuity faux-pas that myself and my other half were creasing up with laughter.
Despite that, it's easy to forgive - One For The Money doesn't want to be taken seriously - it's a breezy romantic comedy with doses of action that's just meant to be a feelgood confection. Rather like the cupcake offered at the end, as long as you just indulge in it instead of fretting the ingredients, you're likely to enjoy it.

We have been flooded with bounty hunter movies. In this film Katherine Heigl plays Stephanie Plum who becomes a bounty hunter for her cousin Vinnie (Patrick Fischler). The action takes place in Trenton, N.J. Her first case is Joe Morelli (Jason O'Mara acting like a young Mel Gibson). He is a cop accused of murder. He also took Stephanie's virginity and never called her back. In return she hit him with her car and broke his leg.

Stephanie has no experience as a bounty hunter. This fact and her doting mother (Debra Monk) and grandmother (Debbie Reynolds) supply us with some mild humor. Plum is aided by Daniel Sunjata, who looks like he could play Derek Jeter.

The acting was fairly decent although the writing is trite with gags and bits that are old hat. In spite of that Heigl brings new life to them. Her performance is what made the film.

No f-bombs that I recall, no sex, rear male nudity.

Good lighthearted fun, faithful to the books I thought, would probably have worked better as a tv series which would give the characters a chance to shine a bit more.
