Adapted from the popular exhilarating novel by author Janet Evanovich, "One For The Money" follows the adventurous pursuits of a female bounty hunter, Stephanie Plumm (Katherine Heigl), which is sadly, anything but exhilarating, to say the least.

New Jersey born and bred, Stephanie Plumm has seen her life go up and (mostly) down life's spiral, however she soon reaches breaking point as a result of losing her car and being unemployed over the last six months. To get some control back in her life, Stephanie turns to her dodgy cousin, a bail bondsman, for a job as a 'recovery agent' going after a former cop, Joe Morelli (Jason O'Mara) who is charged with murder. As she staggers and falls through the bumpy chase that is now her bread and butter, it turns out that she once had a fling with Morelli back in high school and the duo ignite a cat and dog chase, while unknowingly fanning the flames of desire.

Katherine Heigl takes on a different look in this movie, ditching her long blond all-American-girl locks for a Brunette do. Although the look works well for her, it also seems to be one of the few things that are remotely stimulating about her character.

The story itself is unbelievably dull for a plot that is supposed to involve some sneaky love-hate flirting, car chases and guns firing. The blandness of the movie is further accentuated thanks to Stephanie's pointless voice-over narrations for scenes that are already perceptibly laid bare to what it may entail.

"One For The Money" is excellent as merely a time-pass kind of movie for the occasional lazy day at home, as it really will give you 'None for the money'.
