One doesn't need to have any familiarity with the Stephanie Plum novel series to immediately hear and see what an ill fit Katherine Heigl is for the role.

Light and fluffy as a cupcake, Katherine Heigl's many talents are truly wasted in this story based on the first of eighteen best-selling Stephanie Plum novels.

Didn't Jennifer Aniston already do a bounty hunter movie? Talk about sloppy seconds.

One For The Money is a paint-by-numbers chick-flick that'll make you laugh a few times but won't particularly enamour.

Apart from the three girls behind me constantly shifting their legs so that it made my otherwise empty row feel as if I was in an earthquake, One For The Money is an utterly lifeless, joyless experience.

Heigl deserves better than this.

Ultimately, it's further proof that Katherine Heigl picks her projects by stapling all potential scripts to a wall and throwing a dart.

The film miscasts Heigl and doesn't do much good for Debbie Reynolds as Grandma, either.

Director Julie Anne Robinson never finds a convincing tone and ruins everything with over-emphatic comedy reaction shots and a music track that keeps telling us how funny everything is (it isn't).

As bland and flavourless as movies come. Please God, no Two For The Show!

Is there no stopping Katherine Heigl? Please.

With yet another ho-hum run at the multiplexes, Katherine Heigl's big-screen resumé is fast looking like an insider's gag.

Heigl's fine and there's some zingy dialogue, but the violence jars with the comedy and, despite being written and directed by women, it still comes off as needlessly sexist.

The supposedly feisty Plum keeps following the lead of the two hunky men in her life. Scrape off the Elmore-Leonard-lite scuzz, and this is just a retroinactive rom-com.

...a second-rate and consistently worthless Out of Sight knockoff...

If the filmmakers can't be bothered to believe in the real-world implications of its premise, then why ever should we?

Someday to be used in film schools as a textbook example of how not to adapt a best-selling novel for the screen, One for the Money is mis-cast, mis-scripted, and mis-directed in every category.

Compared to someone like Jennifer Lopez in Out of Sight, Stephanie is a total drip who needs to get her head on straight before she picks up a weapon again.

There seem to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanoich. God save us if One for the Money catches on.

Another example of a so so movie standing in the shadow of an excellent book.
