Day 58

Movie: One for the Money
Starring: Katherine Heigl, Jason O'Mara
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Crime
Year: 2012
Formant: Cinema

Plot: After loosing her job and her car, Stephanie asks her cousin to get her a job at his bail bonds company.  Soon she finds herself trying to bring in her ex boyfriend, who just happens to be a cop framed for murder.

This is based on a series of books.

It's smart, sleek and still manages to cover many of the usual basics you would expect from a crime drama.
The two leads play off each other in a way that reminded me of old McMillan and Wife episodes. 
This has the elements for the bases of a great series of films.  And Debbie Reynolds; even though she only has about 8 minutes of screen time steals the show.

I'm trying to talk about it without  spoilers given it just opened this weekend.

What do I think I learned from this film?
You can do anything if you are willing to really put your mind to it.
