REVIEW: ONE FOR THE MONEY
Popular heroine Stephanie Plum makes her way from the pages to the screen as Lionsgate debuts One for the Money on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy), DVD, Digital Download and On Demand just in time for Mother’s Day. Katherine Heigl (Killers) stars as the feisty bounty hunter in this comedic, action-packed film based on the worldwide best-selling eighteen-book mystery series by Janet Evanovich. With a supporting cast of Jason O’Mara (TV’s “Terra Nova”), Daniel Sunjata (TV’s “Rescue Me”), Sherri Shepherd (TV’s “The View”) and Debbie Reynolds (Singin’ in the Rain) and a screenplay by Stacy Sherman, Karen Ray and Liz Brixius, join in Stephanie’s non-stop adventures with her family, the men in her life and her unusual new job. One for the Money, including featurettes, a gag reel and a deleted scene, will be available on May 15th.
A proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl, Stephanie (Heigl) has plenty of attitude, even if she's been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector. Desperate for some fast cash, she turns to her last resort: convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company as a recovery agent. The plot twists as Stephanie takes on the company’s most notorious bail-jumper – former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli (O’Mara) – the same Joe Morelli who happened to break her heart in high school. Nabbing Joe would be satisfying payback, and a hefty paycheck, but as Stephanie learns the ins and outs of the business from hunky colleague Ranger (Sunjata), she also realizes that the case against Joe isn't airtight. With a plethora of misadventures along the way, Stephanie's new job isn't nearly as easy as she thought.
