You know how sometimes you rate a new movie’s worth by saying, ‘Oh, it’s a rental,’ and they know exactly what you mean? Well, One for the Money is not a rental. At best, it’s a made-for-TV movie. I can say this with some authority, not because I watch a lot of small-and big-screen mystery series (although I do), but be-cause I’ve read all 18 of Janet Evanovich’s numerically titled books, the bestselling source material for this misguided clunker. They may not be John le Carré, but Evan-ovich’s comedy, romance and mystery hybrids (dubbed “comedy thrillers”) are very entertaining and pretty addictive, thanks to her main creation, Stephanie Plum.
My name is Nathalie, and I’m a Plum-oholic.
In an interview several years ago, Evanovich explained the original inspiration for Stephanie and her nemesis-paramour, local cop Joe Morelli: the love/hate relationship between Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd in the 1980s Moonlighting series. For perennially flat-broke and less than competent Stephanie, her love life is just part of the adventure.
In this movie, however, Katherine Heigl and Jason O’Mara, who plays Morelli, have so little chemistry – sparring, sexual or other-wise – you don’t much care whether they end up loving or hating each other.
