In addition to Stephanie referring to her cousin as "Sgt" Gazarra, we see him wearing both the single bar of the Lieutenant on his collar, and the double bars of a Capt. He obviously didn't get promoted, as we later see him wearing the Lt. bar again. See more »
The clock on the dash told me I was five minutes late, and a lifetime with my mother told me she'd think that meant I was dead.
I thought you were dead!
Five minutes late, Ma. What's for dinner?
Dried out, but...
As for my dad, those five minutes were spent contemplating how to kill Grandma Mazur and where to bury the body.

I thought the One for The Money was a fun movie. I have watched it several times and was hoping they would continue with sequels. I am sure that the low ratings here will help ensure that does not happen though. The only thing that I wish we saw more were some of the side stories form the books. But, of course, that is hard to do with a movie. You just can't add everything from the book or the movie would be 6 hours long. I was looking forward to watching these characters develop like we have seen them in the books. One of my favorite castings was Shari Sheppard as Lula. She worked that role perfectly. I was able to find the movie in the discount bin however, and now I can watch it whenever I want.
