Watching Katherine Heigl in One for the Money is painful, because its like watching someone's career die right before your eyes. She's a dedicated actress, even dedicated to the stupidest of roles. Unfortunately of all her films this has the stupidest of roles in it because One for the Money fails to choose between being a romantic comedy and a crime thriller, without succeeding in either area and failing at being a hybrid of both due to a script which is as funny as Schindler's List and directional work from Julie Anne Robinson who would have better luck demolishing the walls of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp with a toothpick than she would have directing a film. Unfortunately, she traps Katherine Heigl in a prison of her own in One for the Money and knocks her down to a point where she will have a limited time to prove herself as an actress again before she becomes so typecast in terrible movies that she will have to begin appearing nude to maintain commercial success as an actress. There is a brief moment in One for the Money where we see foreshadowing of that with Katherine Heigl appearing nude in the shower although covering herself up, and it is damned hot, but considering its the single memorable scene in this lackluster attempt to ruin Katherine Heigl's career which almost succeeds in that section due to the requirements of no talent for the cast and crew involved next to everything else being completely messed up.
