One for the Money movie scene

Katherine Heigl tries to figure out what went wrong in One for the Money.

Katherine Heigl (Life As We Know It) stars as Stephanie Plum, the popular heroine of a series of novels written by Janet Evanovich, in the 2012 action-comedy film One for the Money.

Out of work and having just lost her car to a debt collector, proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl Stephanie (Heigl) turns to her last resort for cash: Convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company as a recovery agent. Stephanie quickly takes on the company’s most notorious bail-jumper—former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli (Jason O’Mara, TV’s Terra Nova), who also happens to be the guy who broke her heart back in high school. Pursuing joe with the assistance of a hunky colleague (Daniel Sunjata, TV’s Rescue Me ), Stephanie realizes that her new job isn’t nearly as easy as she thought.

Heigl executive produced the film, which was directed by Julie Ann Robinson, whose previous directing work can be seen on reruns of such television shows as Weeds, Samantha Who? and Grey’s Anatomy (which is where she probably met Heigl, who co-starred in the show several years back).

The critics came down hard on the PG-13-rated One for the Money when it opened wide in U.S. theaters in January, 2012. Still, it managed to drum up $26 million at the domestic box office, even with an average critics’ rating of 2.8 out of 10 at Rotten Tomatoes.

The Blu-ray and DVD includes featurettes, a gag reel and a deleted scene.

Check out the trailer, featuring a overly Jersey-ish Jersey accent by Ms. Heigl:
