Rotten Tomatoes says there are not enough votes to reach a consensus – but the odds are not tipping in the favour of One for the Money.
Out of 49 reviews, 48 are rotten.
Melissa Anderson from Village Voice is straight to the point:
As is Andrew Barker from Variety:
“Tedious and tonally inept.”
Ed Gibbs from the Sun-Herald directs his criticism at Katherine Heigl:
“With yet another ho-hum run at the multiplexes, Katherine Heigl's big-screen resumé is fast looking like an insider's gag.”
As does This is London:
“The film miscasts Heigl and doesn't do much good for Debbie Reynolds as Grandma, either.”
The general audience vote seems a little kinder, with 59% having liked it. The views of “Super reviewer” Bathsheba Monk are case-in-point:
“This is an entertaining movie and Heigel is perfect as Stephanie Plum. Okay, official critics, it's not Citizen Kane, but it isn't pretending to be...can't you see the difference between art and entertainment? Nice to see a movie where the women is the hero!"
What are your thoughts? Did you enjoy the film? Did Katherine Heigl satisfy your expectations for Stephanie Plum?
