One for the Money

Critics Consensus

Dull and unfunny, One For the Money wastes Katherine Heigl's talents on a stunningly generic comic thriller.

Movie Info

New Jersey native Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl) has plenty of attitude, even if she is broke after six months of unemployment. Desperate for money, Stephanie convinces her cousin to give her a job as a recovery agent with his bail-bond company. What she lacks in experience she makes up for in moxie, and she intends to bring in her cousin's biggest bail-jumper: Joe Morelli (Jason O'Mara), a former vice cop and murder suspect who broke Stephanie's heart when she was in high school.

    An utterly pathetic attempt at making something remotely funny. One for the money is a disastrous fiasco about a broke woman's quest to find a missing person for $50,000, which is something no one cared and should be ignored forever.

    I wasn't expecting much from this film, and I was right. The film kind of reminded me of movies like "The Bounty Hunter," "Catch Me If You Can," "Domino," and "Midnight Run." Those films were better than this one. This one needed a rewrite. They have a good idea for a film, but didn't execute it correctly. The tone of the film is off. Another big problem is that some cast members seem like they were miscast. Katherine Heigl is definitely miscast here. She has no on screen chemistry with Jason O'Mara. I think Reese Witherspoon would have done a better job in that role. I also think O'Mara was miscast. I think Bradley Cooper would have done a better job in that role. On a positive, there is some great supporting work here from Daniel Sunjata, John Leguizamo, Debbie Reynolds, and Fisher Stevens.

    It's no classic, but it's certainly not the cluster-bomb critics have been making it out to be. Harmless fun.

    One for the Money is a mediocre romantic comedy that relies too much on the same tired old tropes. The story follows Stephanie Plum, who moves back to her hometown after losing her job and tries her hand at being a bail bondsman in order to get back on her feet. Katherine Heigl, Jason O'Mara, and John Leguizamo lead the cast, but their performances are pretty stereotypical. Everything is rather formulaic and predictable for the most part, making for a fairly dull and run-of-the-mill film. There are some entertaining bits here and there, but One for the Money plays it safe and sticks with the typical rom-com shtick.
