One for the Money Reviews

February 24, 2012
The film miscasts Heigl and doesn't do much good for Debbie Reynolds as Grandma, either.

As bland and flavourless as movies come. Please God, no Two For The Show!
January 30, 2012
An ungainly mix of flat-footed gumshoeing and strained attempts at hilarity, all delivered with an unconvincing Joizy vibe.

The movie has the by-the-numbers efficiency of a decent TV series, and about as much flavor.
January 27, 2012
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.

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.
January 27, 2012
Punitively dull.
January 27, 2012
Everything in One for the Money rings cringingly false.
January 27, 2012
Tedious and tonally inept.
January 27, 2012
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
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.

To compare this mess to a sitcom would be an insult to sitcoms.
