The movie One for the Money from 2012 is based on the novel of the same name by Janet Evanovich. The film follows Stephanie Plum (played by Katherine Heigl), a recently divorced and unemployed woman in New Jersey who is desperate for money. With no other job prospects on the horizon, Stephanie turns to her cousin, a bail bondsman named Vinnie (played by Patrick Fischler), for work.

Vinnie agrees to give Stephanie a job as a bounty hunter, with her first assignment being to track down a former cop named Joe Morelli (played by Jason O'Mara) who is wanted for murder. But here's the twist: Stephanie and Joe have a history. When they were teenagers, Joe took Stephanie's virginity and then promptly disappeared from her life. Now, Stephanie is determined to bring him to justice.

As Stephanie begins her investigation, she runs into a number of obstacles. She has no experience as a bounty hunter and is constantly making mistakes. She is also dealing with a number of personal issues, including her meddling family, a creepy stalker, and the fact that she can't seem to get Joe out of her head. To make matters worse, Joe seems to be one step ahead of her at every turn.

As Stephanie gets deeper into her investigation, she discovers that there is more to Joe's case than she initially thought. There are a number of people who want Joe dead, and Stephanie may be the only one who can keep him alive long enough to clear his name.

One for the Money is a fun and fast-paced action-comedy that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Katherine Heigl is perfectly cast as Stephanie Plum, bringing both humor and heart to the role. She has great chemistry with Jason O'Mara, who imbues Joe Morelli with just the right amount of charm and danger. Daniel Sunjata also shines as Ranger, another bounty hunter who takes Stephanie under his wing and helps her navigate the dangerous world of fugitive apprehension.

The film features a number of thrilling action sequences, including a car chase through the streets of New Jersey and a shootout in an abandoned factory. But what sets One for the Money apart from other action-comedies is its sharp writing and memorable characters. The film boasts an impressive supporting cast, including Debbie Reynolds as Stephanie's feisty grandmother and Sherri Shepherd as a sassy prostitute.

Overall, One for the Money is a highly entertaining film that will appeal to fans of both action and comedy. It's the perfect movie for a night in with friends or a lazy Sunday afternoon. Whether you're a fan of the book series or new to the world of Stephanie Plum, you won't be disappointed by this fun and exciting adventure.

One for the Money is a 2012 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3 and a MetaScore of 22.
