If those two statements combined are enough to make you want to see One For the Money, the latest film to front former Gray's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl, then my job is done. Nothing to see here folks, go to the theater right now and see this film to your heart's desire. No? That's not nearly enough to convince you to see this movie? You're still recovering from The Killers to fall for that twice? Clever girl. Based on first of the extensive Stephanie Plum series by mystery author Janet Evanovich, One for the Money introduces us to one of the more enduring heroines in modern fiction. Stephanie Plum has been the protagonist in eighteen (EIGHTEEN!!) full-length novels, and one has to wonder why with such a loyal fan-base and obvious popularity she hasn't been given the cinematic treatment until now. Maybe producers were just waiting for the right actress to come along, and I'll more than readily give Heigl credit for her talents as an actress, even if she has yet to attain dominance in the film industry. Money seems at least different on the surface from her usual romantic roles, and if it turned out to actually be GOOD, then maybe I could get behind seeing more of this promising performer in the future.
