I'll be the first to admit, I am normally not a big reader.  I can read a magazine from cover to cover...but unless a book really grabs my attention from the beginning to the end...I don't finish it.  Unless, of course, it's a Janet Evanovich novel.  I have been hooked to her Stephanie Plum series since it's inception with her first book "One For The Money".  I have spent many hours laughing out loud to her books...so much in fact, that my husband Jim, who is an avid reader, had to read them too just to see if they were ans funny as I had made them out to be.  We've read all the books in the series and we've always said it would be cool if they made them into a movie or even a mini series...and our wishes are now coming true this Friday when "One For The Money" hits theaters based on the Janet Evanovich  novel of the same.

A proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl, Stephanie Plum's got plenty of attitude, even if she's been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector.  Desperate for some fast cash, Stephanie turns to her last resort:  convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company...as a recovery agent.  True, she doesn't even own a pair of handcuffs and her weapon of choice is pepper spray, but that doesn't stop Stephanie from taking on Vinny's biggest bail-jumper: former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli - yup, the same sexy, irresistible Joe Morelli who seduced and dumped her back in high school.

Nabbing Morelli would be satisfying payback - and a hefty payday - but as Stephanie learns the ins and outs of becoming a recovery agent from Ranger, a hunky colleague who's the best in the business, she also realizes the case against Morelli isn't airtight. Add to the mix her meddling family, a potentially homicidal boxer, witnesses who keep dying and the problem of all those flying sparks when she finds Morelli himself...well, suddenly Stephanie's new job isn't nearly as easy as she thought.

Starring Katherine Heigl, ONE FOR THE MONEY is a fresh, funny action-comedy directed by Julie Anne Robinson and also starring Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata, John Leguiziamo, Debbie Reynolds and Debra Monk.

Here's a sneak peek of what to expect:

 

I hope to get to the movie this Friday...and I'll be sure to give you a review as soon as I see the movie!
