One for the Money stars Katherine Heigl as the character adored by millions of Janet Evanovich fans, Stephanie Plum. Her exploits have resulted in 18 books by the author and her first to hit the big screen, One for the Money, is out now and has given us an armful of fantastic quotes.
Heigl’s Plum must find a job. When she’s just about out of options, she takes a job as a bounty hunter for her cousin’s bail bonds business. Her first assignment is to bring back a cop who is being sought for murder. The fact that the man, Joe Morelli, is also the high school chum who did her wrong back in the day, makes it all the better.
Sherri Shepherd stars as Lula, an Evanovich character beloved almost as much as Plum. She is the classic hooker with a heart of gold and herself provides some of the best One for the Money quotes.
