One For The Money

2

A Plum role for Katherine Heigl

At first glance, One For The Money looks like one of those eye-rollingly chauvinistic gun-in-the-handbag sort of deals, with a gum-snapping ditz channelling her inner Dirty Harry. On second glance, it’s exactly that.

Desperate for dough, jobless Stephanie (Katherine Heigl) scores a bounty-hunter gig from her scuzzball cousin, and soon finds herself embroiled in mayhem, including a car bombing and a savage beating or two.

Heigl’s fine and there’s some zingy dialogue, but the violence jars with the comedy and, despite being written and directed by women, it still comes off as needlessly sexist.
