One for the Money Review

DoBlu
18 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Didn’t we just do this? The whole, “Awkward, unknowing bounty hunter chases down an old flame wherein romantic hijinks ensue?” It sounds familiar. A Gerard Butler/Jennifer Aniston joint? What was that called? Bounty something? Oh, right. The Bounty Hunter . Duh. People hated it. Cutting One for the Money some slack wouldn’t be the end all.

One for the Money (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
7 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Consistently bestselling authors have a hit-or-miss track record with silver-screen adaptations. Stephen King has had a few good ones, Elmore Leonard even more, and J.K. Rowling obviously hit the jackpot big time. However, there are a number of authors who've moved lots of books without also spawning a Hollywood franchise.

One for the Money (Blu-ray Review)

2 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Even with a solid Blu-ray presentation that kicks up the overall presentation a notch, I can’t help but feel that One for the Money is a completely unnecessary flick that shouldn’t have gone into production in the first place. The acting is mediocre, the writing is weak, and the direction is run-of-the-mill. One for the Money is simply not up to snuff.

One for the Money

High-Def Digest
27 April 2012
  • Conclusion: It appears there are three audiences that are going to enjoy 'One for the Money:' Women, fans of Katherine Heigl's other movies, and fans of Janet Evanovich's books. It isn't as terrible as I predicted it would be, but it sure isn't as entertaining as one would hope. In comparison to the majority of Heigl's other movies, it's slightly better than the others. The story is predictable and the cliché-riddled, by-the-numbers script is, at times, witty and smart.

One for the Money

BluRay Authority
27 April 2012
  • Excerpt: I know it’s wrong to judge a book by its cover. And, conversely, a movie by its poster or Blu-Ray artwork. But I couldn’t help myself when One for the Money arrived. I don’t recall it being in theaters, but it looks relatively new. This tells me that it was either straight to video or not a very big hit at the box office. Most likely the latter.

One For The Money

Cinema Blend
27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: One For The Money operates under the notion that its main character is likeable. Unfortunately, she’s not. She’s the type of impulsive woman that runs over ex-lovers with her car and runs over the audience’s good will with her bumbling and selfish approach to life. As the subject of nearly twenty best-selling Janet Evanovich novels, Stephanie Plum obviously has many positive qualities that make her extremely readable, but this adaptation of One For The Money doesn’t take...

One For The Money

AV Club
27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The first novel in Janet Evanovich’s bestselling Stephanie Plum series has been in development as a film for nearly 20 years, which is apparently how long it took for everything to turn out horribly wrong. The casting of Katherine Heigl, one of the least-gritty actresses on the planet, as rough-and-tumble Stephanie Plum, a laid-off lingerie saleswoman who discovers a surprising aptitude for bounty hunting, isn’t the biggest problem with One For The Money , but it’s a...

One For the Money Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
23 October 2011
  • Conclusion: One for the Money is an odd case of having a lot of winning attributes, but never really gelling into anything that is remotely as entertaining as it should be. Heigl is an appealing performer, and she does decent enough work here establishing Stephanie Plum's pluck as well as her inherent incompetence, but the scheme Stephanie is assigned to uncover never really bristles with danger or excitement the way it should.

  • Summary: One For The Money overraskede stort. Det er en sjov fortælling, som indeholder en masse spøjse episoder. Sjovt tema med den unge smukke dusørjæger, som resulterer i en særdeles underholdende film, der kan ses af alle.
