One for the Money is based on a novel of the same name by Janet Evanovich. It’s the first in a series featuring Evanovich’s heroine Stephanie Plum who is a New Jersey bounty hunter.
Briefly, the plot follows Plum (played by Katherine Heigl) after she’s been laid-off and recently divorced. Somehow she lands a job at her cousin’s bail-bond business. Her first assignment has her hunting down a wanted local cop that she happened to be previously involved with romantically. The main question is whether or not Heigl can pull off a Jersey accent. Maybe, maybe not.
