Based on the best-selling novel by Janet Evanovich, One For The Money is a fast-paced comedy about a young woman forced to re-evaluate her life to make ends meet.
Times are tough for Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl) — she is out of work and out of luck, with no end in sight to her misery.
So Stephanie turns in desperation to her shady cousin Vinnie (Patrick Fischler), who runs his own company, Vinnie’s Bail Bonds.
Without any training or obvious skills, Stephanie goes to work for Vinnie, chasing down men and women who have skipped bail, beginning with her high school old flame Joe Morelli (Jason O’Mara), a former vice cop who is now wanted for murder.
Aided by the enigmatic Ranger (Daniel Sunjata), who teaches her the basics of bounty hunting, Stephanie closes in on her prey but when she finally catches up with Joe, she questions if he is truly guilty of the heinous crime.
Sparks of sexual attraction are rekindled and Stephanie risks her new career to determine Joe’s guilt or innocence while contending with her meddlesome family.
