One for the Money (2012)

One for the moneyDIRECTOR: Julie Anne Robinson; CAST: Katherine Heigl, Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata

SUMMARY (from IMDB): Unemployed and newly-divorced Stephanie Plum lands a job at her cousin's bail-bond business, where her first assignment puts her on the trail of a wanted local cop from her romantic past.


I will not even pretend that watched One for the Money for any other reason than Jason O'Mara. Well, mostly.

The story is pretty clich├ęd: a girl wants to get back to a guy, but finds out that he is innocent of what he is being accused of, so she helps him out while still getting some revenge, and they make up in the end.

There are some foggy moments, but on the whole the plot is nicely rounded up. As expected, the bad guys are defeated, however the story is not completely predictable, as the main villain is quite a surprise.

The film is just as funny as it should be for a comedy, and did I mention the main cast is very easy on the eye? Also, I loved Stephanie's grandma, she is amazing.

All in all, One for the Money is a nice film to watch after a stressful day.

RECOMMENDATION: One for the Money offers some light entertainment to relax with.


  1. I wanted to see this! Have you read the Stephanie Plum books before? I haven't, but if I like the movie I may have to check them out :) I'll have to keep an eye out for this!

    1. I've heard of the books, but I haven't read them, no. I might give them a try when I need something relaxing (I think they would be relaxing, at least).

  2. I love love love this series but I was so disappointed with the movie. Firstly because KH was all wrong for Stephanie and Morelli didn't even look Italian or at least how I pictured him in the books. If they make another movie, I will avoid. I'm just gonna stick with the books.


    1. I guess it depends what you read/see first. I understand your feelings, I'm usually disappointed when the movie doesn't correspond with my perception, but since I haven't read the books, I found this one okay.


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
