Storyline

After losing her job, Jersey girl Stephanie Plum is broke. Needing a job she is told that her cousin, a bail bondsman, needs someone to help out in the office. But the only job openings he has are for skip tracers. She learns that Joe Morelli, a guy she knew intimately years ago, is one of the "skips". She eventually finds him but wasn't really prepared so he gets away. Another bounty hunter, Ranger, tries to teach her. Eventually she finds Morelli again, but he claims he is innocent of the crime he is accused of and he is trying to prove his innocence. Eventually Stephanie thinks he's telling the truth so she stakes out the person who can help him. She only finds herself in trouble and Morelli saves her. She tries to find someone who can prove his innocence, but the problem is that shortly after meeting with them they're killed or attacked. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

When the driver's side window of "Big Blue" is shown broken in the close-up, shattered safety glass is shown crumbled all the way down to the door frame, and is visible several inches above it. When Stephanie is shown opening the door and getting in from a wide shot, there is no broken glass in the window, nor anywhere around it on the ground. See more »

Cute but technical sucked
4 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was cute but the technical adviser should be fired. As a Bail Bondsman for over 15 years, here are some things that were stupid. Warrants for bail jumpers are not DEAD OR ALIVE. That went out over 100 years ago. Secondly....the character used a 5 SHOT revolver, but the two shooting scenes were ridiculous. At the shooting range, the 5 shot revolver fired TWELVE ROUNDS!Then you have the scene where she shoots the bad guy and fired SEVEN ROUNDS! As you can see these technical flaws really made the movie CHEEZY. I would really love to see a sequel, but get your facts and reality straight. The overall movie was entertaining. I have have always enjoyed the actress' work. She is very talented and stunning to watch. If you decide to do a sequel, then use a real bail bondsman and bail enforcement agent for your technical advisers.
