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

Based on the 1994 book "One for the Money," by Janet Evanovich. Evanovich has published 24 novels on the Stephanie Plum series. The 24th novel, Takedown Twenty, was published on 2013. 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: You're in violation of your bond agreement. I'm gonna need you to come with me.
Joe Morelli: [laughs] Vinnie sent *you* to bring me in?
Stephanie Plum: Yeah. You think that's funny?
Joe Morelli: Yeah, I do! And I gotta tell you, I could use a good joke these days, because I haven't had a lot to laugh about lately, you know what I mean?

Very well done
27 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

I just saw the movie. I admit, I do not go to the movie theatre very often, but this was worth the money. It is a soft comedy movie and I thought both the script and the delivery were performed very well. My wife (who read the book series) thought that Carlos (the ranger) should have been hotter. I thought he delivered the role convincingly. If you are expecting a Bruce Willis action flick-this is not it. If you are expecting Jenna Elfman, you will be out of luck. Kathrine played it straight and to the point. The pace was rapid and the scenes were captured realistically (good editing.) The events in the movie are engineered to appeal to the ladies. It did. My wife really liked the film. I admit, I enjoyed it. I would recommend this film.

Congratulations to the cast and crew. This film is one in the win column and will no doubt be shown repeatedly on TV in the future with audiences taking time to watch it again and again.

Regards, Matt
