Action, Comedy
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), the guy to whom she lost her virginity—and later tried to run over with a car. The film is based on the first in 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, because the movie is a dull dud. O’Mara is an actor who can make every line irritating; he’s just so INTENSE. Heigl does her best with the 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, if this keeps up, I see direct-to-video movies in her future.
