DeeDee and I saw this movie today. I have to say, I’m thankful that I went into this movie theatre with very low expactations. After reading the reviews on Flixter that ultimately gave the movie a 3% rating on rottentomatoes.com, how could I expect anything great?! The moment I read that “they” were making a One For the Money movie I was so excited, hoping that the cast would be perfect. That “they” would pick an actress who could support both Stephanie Plums strengths and weaknesses. I think that should have played a huge role in picking the actress. Well, “they” (whoever they are) went in the opposite direction and chose to go with the popular actress route instead. Kathrine Heigl is very cookie cutter. You could literally pick her up and drop her into several different chick flicks and she would be playing the same person in all of them, only this time they gave her a terrible jersey accent. Not only do I despise Kathrine Heigl for that reason, they rushed the movie along to try and get all the key points in. It didn’t get into much character development. Several other no-name actors are in the movie for comedic relief (which I was thankful for because Katherine Heigl wasn’t going to carry this movie along if you beat her with a stick!). Lola, my favorite character in the book was rushed over as well. Gave her a few funny lines here and there but when it came down to the nitty gritty stuff about Lola, they skip right over that too. Overall, this movie was a flop. I DEFINITELY choose book over movie. Did you see the movie? What did you think?
