Film: One For The Money

Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl) is down on her luck. Broke and unemployed she visits her cousin’s bail bonds office and soon finds herself chasing a fugitive with a $50,000 price tag.

The fugitive just happens to be her ex-boyfriend and she must navigate a world populated by crooks, hookers and hitmen to bring him back to custody.

But is he guilty of his crime?

This comedy drama is light on laughs and feels more like a tv pilot episode than a movie but Heigl is easy to watch and her oddball family do provide the odd chuckle.

Jason O’Mara does his best George Clooney impersonation as the fugitive cop but there’s nothing on show here to drag this out of mediocrity.

If it turns up on tv and you’ve nothing else to do then give it a try but don’t go out your way to catch this one.

Ric’s Rating: Dodgy
