Dinner With Granny
Is A Bang!

Katherine Heigl wants to see what her grandma thinks about her taking a new job as a bounty hunter to track down her ex-boyfriend in One for the Money.

One for the Money

She's cute, she's tough, but she has terrible luck with men. Oh, yeah, and she just lost her job, too.

Down on her luck, but not giving up her spunk, Katherine Heigl decides she's got to take One for the Money when she accepts a job as a bounty hunter... assigned to tracking down her ex-boyfriend. Is there any better job?

Let the chase begin!

Fast becoming the poster child of adorable romantic comedies, Heigl is known for her great sense of comedic timing and adorable smile. She's played strong female characters in the past in films like The Ugly Truth, Knocked Up and Life as We Know It. But for One for the Money, Heigl received a new skill to add to her long list of talents when she picked up a gun as bounty hunter Stephanie Plum.

Assigned to the job of tracking down her ex-boyfriend, played by the sexy Jason O'Mara of Life on Mars and Terra Nova fame, Heigl's character will earn a $50,000 bounty commission if she can put her feelings aside and nab this outlaw before he skips town.

What does her family think about their daughter becoming a bounty hunter? They think she needs a husband a lot more than she needs a job. And grandma, well... she's more than a little outspoken, especially when she gets her hands on Stephanie's new gun.

In this exclusive clip of Katherine Heigl's new romantic comedy with a little bit of action and a whole lot of funny, grandma comes to turkey dinner with a pistol in hand. The question is, does she know how to pack that much heat?

One for the Money is based off the popular book by Janet Evanovich about female bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and releases in theaters Jan. 27.

It is just horrible that any Marcus theatre will not be playing this movie. I'm going to complain.

Tons of errors! Do you know your film or not?

It was also $10,000... not $50,000....

He wasn't her ex-boyfriend. He was the boy she lost her v-card to, yes, but he was not her boyfriend. He was a one-time only thing in High School after hours at work, and he never called her so the next time she saw him she ran him over with a Buick and broke his leg like the rat deserved. Geeze, movie people. How could you screw THAT one up? Read the book! All the same, mom and I will be there on the 27th for the opening. But...damn it all the same!

I think the movie will be great. Whether it was perfectly cast or not doesn't matter and all the comments I see everywhere about how they should have done this or could have done that.... Give the movie a chance. It's not even out yet! Go in for the entertainment and be glad that they thought the books were good enough to give it a go with One For The Money. Maybe we'll get another movie out of some of the other numbers!

Hardly wait for the movie, my sister-in-law, daughter, and daughter-in-law are all going to see it asap,hopefully on Jan 27th of Jan. We all read all of Janet's books 1 thru 17. We have a good time talking about different things that happen to Stephany. I like all the ppl They have picked a great cast for the movie.

I am a HUGE fan of the books, but somehow am less than thrilled with the casting and the tag lines promoting the movie. Stephanie was "never outsmarted"...it was all dumb luck. I am still willing to watch the movie, but probably not until it hits cable. If the clip posted above is any indication to true Plum fans, this movie looks like it'll be far less spectacular, enjoyable or even comedic as the books. Sorry, but the clip and the previews haven't shown me any promise that the movie may live up to the book. Hopefully I will be proved wrong.
