Heigl's character Stephanie Plum is an unkempt, disheveled woman that has come unglued after her divorce and various terminations of employ. She has less than no confidence and is completely broke. More so than any other character Heigl has played, Stephanie is clingy, neurotic and desperate. Heigl's strengths are her assertiveness, charm, random romantic gestures and her good looks. None of these attributes are present in this character.
Making matters worse, the leading man, the officer on the run as it were, Joe Morelli, is a chauvinistic, annoying man with a dull personality. Joe and Stephanie mesh as well together as frozen yogurt and Coldstone Creamery. One is healthy and lifeless while the other is chock full of mouth watering goodness. For those of you that have pegged me as being a fan of Jason O'Mara you would be wrong.
Ultimately, Heigl tried to will this movie to something resembling mediocrity but despite her best attempts it fails. One For the Money is a waste of time and redundantly enough, money. I adore Ms. Heigl and I find her to be beautiful but all beauty and no substance just isn't what she is normally all about. Two sticky thumbs down.
