One for the Money (2012) -Quickie Review


Directed by: Julie Ann Robinson

Starring: Katherine Hiegl, Jason O' Mara

Genre: Comedy, Action

Colour, 91 Minutes

I do not really know why I watched this, but every now and again I watch films with bad premise deliberately just to remember what makes a good film and to balance out my reviews. Well, the premise definitely has followed up on this one and it shows as one of the worst films I have seen from 2012 so far. The humour is boring, the acting is unimpressive and the plot just gets stupid and redundant as it progresses. The acting was very flat and was the worst aspect of the film, and everything just felt so boring. Perhaps it i sjust me, but it was not a very enjoyable experience, however, the concept of a woman going after a criminal for money is an okay idea. There are a few jokes that make you smile a little and the plot is not entirely stupid. It just wasn't executed very well. It is a bad movie that does not offer much, and is definitely avoidable.

Rating: 3/10

    With only 2% on RT, I didn't really expect you to give much praise to this film, lol. Great mini-review, Thomas. Keep up the good work
