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.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this other than I like women detective storys as they can often throw up nice twists.
Well,this film delivered the goods.Very entertianing,although I nearly stopped watching before things began to get good.
I thought enough of this film to seek out another 'starring' Katherine Heigl - Knocked up - which was a whole other genre.
Anyway,the fact that Katherine was a bumbling detective put me off slightly because I thought this was a flaw...
However,after I'd convinced myself to continue watching,I realised that this was the Strength of the movie !
I was really satisfied with the ending and allowed that to mitigate any doubts I had earlier.
Some pretty good one liners in this film and I was impressed with some of the supporting actors too.
So what could've been a bit of a lame duck redeemed itself over the course of the whole movie,thank goodness.
Would I recommend it to others...,well,I think you'd have to be in the right mood to properly appreciate it.
If at first you don't succeed in getting to the end of the film,don't throw the disc away,try again another day.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised.I know I was.
And,just because...,Katherine looks nothing like she does on the Disc sleeve in the film,and real life,how strange.

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.

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.

I've read most of the Stephanie Plum books and they are enormous fun. They feature great characters, witty dialogue and a hilarious Chandler-esque first person commentary from Stephanie Plum, the main character. They also have (particularly the early ones) well constructed and entertaining plotlines.
This film features a fair representation of the original plot and almost nothing else. The Grandma Mazur turn from Debbie Reynolds is fun but underused, and Sherri Shepherd as Lula managed to make me crack a smile from time to time, but the rest of the charm in the books is notable by its absence. In addition, the film lacks pace which is a total no-no with this kind of flick. If you've read the books, this film adds nothing so go and read them again (as I am doing now), if you haven't, give them a try because they are terrific, but this film needs to rot in the bargain bin, where it would be overpriced at 50p.
WARNING: Having read the other reviews on Amazon, there are some folks out there who are convinced that any negative review is in and of itself, unhelpful. I am sure that my review will soon be no exception, but you have been warned! The film is dreadful and I deeply resent the £10.00 I wasted on it. But don't take my word for it, have a look at Rotten Tomatoes or any of the professional critics out there in web-land. (I wish I had!) They will give you the same message: avoid!
