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

Trivia

The film was considered a box office disappointment by all involved and plans for a big screen adaptation of the second book in the series, "Two for the Dough", were scrapped. See more »

Goofs

The second lock picking scene where Stephanie picks a padlocked door is inaccurate. The tool she is using is a bypass knife not a pick. A bypass knife is used to exploit certain poorly manufactured locks, which does not include the BEST branded lock used in the movie. You can also see the tension wrench being held nowhere inside the lock tumbler in her right? hand. There is no way this lock would actually open with this manner of picking. See more »

Quotes

Stephanie Plum: [v.o] 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.
Mrs. Plum: I thought you were dead!
Stephanie Plum: Five minutes late, Ma. What's for dinner?
Mrs. Plum: Pot roast.
Stephanie Plum: Yum.
Mrs. Plum: Dried out, but...
Stephanie Plum: [v.o] As for my dad, those five minutes were spent contemplating how to kill Grandma Mazur and where to bury the body.

I was disappointed
28 January 2012 | by harmnegirlSee all my reviews

If you haven't read the book you MIGHT like the movie. If you've read and loved the books this movie leaves a lot to be desired.

I suppose the MAIN part of the plot is the same but the details are scrambled or in some cases completely left out. Maybe I'm in the minority but a lot of the really funny stuff in the book was in the details and these parts got lost in the translation to the big screen. There was nothing too extreme in the book that might not have fit in the PG-13 rating so why did they change so many things? It was like the added more dialog in places and took out the fun and exciting stuff. Time shouldn't have been the reason either because the movie ran only an hour and a half - if they'd gone for two they could have had a much better (and closer to the book) adaptation.

I didn't care for the casting. Lula, Connie, and Vinnie matched the book descriptions of the characters fairly well but everyone else was off. It was like the casting director didn't read the book.

I'm disappointed because I had high hopes for the movie. I won't be buying the DVD or going to any sequels. Really, I think they'd have been better off to cast all unknowns that FITTED the characters and stuck to the plot from the book - it would have had a better shot.
