One for the Money Katherine Heigl is Stephanie Plum, a former Macy’s employee who goes into the bail-bond business. Her first gig is to go after a cop in trouble, Joe Morelli (Jason O’Mara), a guy she lost her virginity to and tried to run over with a car. It’s all based on the first of a popular string of novels by Janet Evanovich, and my guess is that director Julie Anne Robinson missed something in the translation from book to film. The movie is a dull dud. O’Mara is an actor who has a talent for making every line irritating. He’s just so intense. This is a guy who visits the catering table for coffee a lot during the shoot. Heigl does her best with lazy material, and Debbie Reynolds shows up in the kooky grandma role. This isn’t the movie that will take Heigl to the next level. Actually, I see direct-to-video movies in her future.
