One for the Money

One for the Money
The Grand Theater
Good

It was at the request of my smokin' hot wife that I saw this movie. Becky is a big fan of Janet Evanovich and was super psyched to see this movie (She's hoping for 17 sequals). She was pleased with the casting and performance of all the main characters with the exception of Ranger, who she liked but just didn't live up to her mental image. "Ranger needs more presence" In any case I really enjoyed the movie because it pleased my wife. Her enthusuasm for the characters and the story was infectious. Multiple times over the evening I asked her "Are they getting it right?" and every time she said yes. To see her happy and satisfied made me happy and satidfied.

Without Becky's interest I would have never have seen the movie. Becky even said that as a movie alone she would not have gone to see it either. That's probably true for 99% of the people who went to see it. It is loved only because it appeared in book form first. If it stood on its own, noone would have gone to see it.
