The dialogue isn't exactly Chandler-esque, though the stereotypes are hardboiled.

Maybe it will please a few Heigl enthusiasts, but for everybody else you should avoid at all costs.

An ungainly mix of flat-footed gumshoeing and strained attempts at hilarity, all delivered with an unconvincing Joizy vibe.

Disappointing...The comedic lines penned by Evanovich, while riotously funny when read, aren't nearly as effective in the film.

Inane wish fulfillment of the most dreadful variety -- a deeply vapid movie which puts no sincere care or thought into how its slapdash story choices interact with the real world.

You could go nuts with the double entendres associated with One for the Money, beginning, of course, with the film's title.

The movie has the by-the-numbers efficiency of a decent TV series, and about as much flavor.

We're meant to laugh at the fact that cute little Stephanie bumbles her way to getting one informant killed and another savagely beaten and thrown from a moving vehicle. Oh Stephanie, you're a riot!

everything that is wrong with One for the Money is the result of Katherine Heigl

There have been notable exceptions, but Heigl tends to imbue her characters with an off-putting mix of insecurity and abrasiveness. This film is a prime example.

I guess I can't call the movie sexist as it was largely produced, directed and written by women. So I'll settle for calling it dull, corny and amateurish instead.

It's official: Katherine Heigl will not rest until every last person on Earth is a misogynist.

Katherine Heigl's self-guided descent into career irrelevance continues unabated.

There is action of a sort -- a car blows up, shots are fired -- and what might pass for witty, sexy banter to someone who once overheard a conversation about an episode of Moonlighting.

Heigl's comic timing is solid, and she knows her limitations well enough, but there's a hollowness at the movie's center, right where Heigl's heart should be.

Imagine an Elmore Leonard movie scripted by a bad Nora Ephron imitator, and you'll have an idea of how dead-in-the-Jersey-water it is.

Punitively dull.

Heigl and O'Mara snipe at each other with the sizzling chemistry of two people who can't wait to whip out their BlackBerries and check their email as soon as a take is over.
