One for the Money Reviews

January 27, 2012
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.

Everything in One for the Money rings cringingly false.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
January 27, 2012
Tedious and tonally inept.
January 27, 2012
"One for the Money" comes across less as a fully functioning feature film and more like a busted pilot for another aggresively quirky series for the USA Network.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 27, 2012
A muddled, tonally clumsy adaptation of the first of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books.

January 27, 2012
This Jersey-set movie--Heigl tries on the accent every so often, and it never fits--would be more fun with Snooki in the lead role. At least the thing would have some spunk.

Janet Evanovich's best-selling Stephanie Plum series deserved better than this woefully executed, stillborn attempt at a franchise.
January 27, 2012
Heigl, sporting tousled brunette locks, gives a busy, unconvincing performance.
January 27, 2012
What a pity. You can see what Heigl is going for in this movie, and you can see the character she wants to play, but it doesn't come off.
January 27, 2012
Fans of Evanovich's work should walk away satisfied, perhaps even delighted with the adaptation. Everyone else will simply be able to walk away, which is saying something considering the debilitating toxicity of Heigl's recent output.

No wonder Lionsgate chose not to screen the finished product in advance for review. 'One for the Money' is a surefire example of inept filmmaking, absolutely reeking of rote desperation.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 27, 2012
One for the Money is tepidly glib throughout. Even violent murders are followed by wisecracks or another prurient opportunity to ogle Heigl's behind and cleavage.

January 26, 2012
To compare this mess to a sitcom would be an insult to sitcoms.
