The comedy “One for the Money” is based the three books series by Janet Evanovich.

A New Jersey woman named Stephanie Plum, played by Katherine Heigl, who has been out of work for six months. She caves in and goes to her cousin Vinny for a job as a recovery agent.

The movie runs a comfortable length of one hour and 46 minutes. The ten dollar ticket is only worth the money if you have the money and time to spare, otherwise seeking a more intriguing movie would be wise.

The journey Stephanie under goes to capture her ex and solve the murder he supposedly committed is uproariously funny, but with a somewhat predictable plot.

Katherine Heigl is sexy and powerful alongside co-star Jason O’Mara. Her range of emotions brought depth to her character and kept the audience cheering for her.

The mediocre introduction was a misleading beginning to the well organized scenes and conflicts.

The plot was rather simple and wasn’t discernable from other common story lines of heroin denies attraction, relationship heat grows stronger, and the girl and guy end up together in the final scene.

This movie is good for a girl’s night out or a date movie where you could sneak quiet a few minutes of kissing without missing a thing.

I would recommend seeing “One for the Money,” but it does not make any great bounds in the movie industry. Quiet a few giggles will be had, but not the slightest mental strain will be made while viewing this comedy and not-so “suspense/thriller.”

The opening day viewings were far from sell-outs. At the 4:50 p.m. showing the theater was a little over half fun, most of the movie goers being over the age of 60.

The on-line ratings were satisfactory and above. I would give it a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10.
