Adorable Katherine Heigl becomes a stage five stalker -- for hire! -- when she hunts down her ex-boyfriend in One for the Money.
She's cute, she's spunky and she's got an ex-boyfriend (if you can call him that) on the run. Katherine Heigl plays Stephanie Plum, the lingerie-saleswoman-turned-bounty-hunter, in One for the Money, the new action romantic comedy that has our gal packing heat and patching up old relationships in order to score 50 grand.
Enter scruffy and down-right hot Jason O'Mara (where has he been hiding?). He's the newest resident hottie on our rom-com radar, and we've got to say he's looking pretty good telling Heigl where to take it. In One for the Money, he plays Joe Morelli, the ex-cop on the run trying to prove his innocence for a murder he didn't commit.
Known more for his action roles in Resident Evil: Extinction, Live on Mars and Terra Nova, it's interesting to see O'Mara go up against the queen of romantic comedies.
The on-screen chemistry between O'Mara and Heigl is the sexy highlight of this film, but the plot, on the other hand, is a little more than flimsy. It's not only tough to believe Heigl is a girl from Jersey with enough spunk to outwit a cop, but also that the man she's chasing is dumb enough to be caught -- or fall in love, whichever story you're tracking.
The plot, however, is heavy with cliché, but comic relief is provided by Sherri Shepherd, whom you'll recognize from her less comical role in Precious.
Rounding out the "who is the right guy for me?" choices Heigl's character has to endure is the buff, beautiful gentleman by the name of Daniel Sunjata. He plays "Ranger," an expert in the field that we know is always one step away when Steph bites off more than she can chew.
