While I'm not a big fan of watching movies that are based on books that I have read, I am making plans with my sister to see One for the Money this weekend. Any other Stephanie Plum fans heading to the movies this weekend?

I want to go see it, but I don't know if I will be able to or not. (I have two funerals to attend this weekend)

Good one Pale!

Becca - I can't decide if I should do a quick reread of the book or just go with it and not be too critical.

Heading there tomorrow night with a couple of friends. We have read all the books and are Ranger Fans. Although, I know movie-wise I'll be a Morelli fan because he was cast so much better than Ranger.

didn't see half-price tickets and I'm scared about going to see it. None of the characters 'cept Lula seem to fit the images in my head.

I'll wait to hear y'all's reviews. I am so disappointed in the casting that I'll wait and see what other people who like the stories think of it.

I am so excited to see this movie! I hope it's good. I love the books and will be disappointed if the movie doesn't hold true.

Those books make me laugh out loud sometimes. Hilarious!

Also interested to see how Ranger looks on screen. whistle

OK
I have the book but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Maybe I should see the movie and then read it. Then I can picture them as the characters are being portrayed. Then I won't be disappointed. Read Twilight after it had been cast so as I was reading those books I could visualize the people as in the movie.

I'm going on Wednesday night with a girlfriend. I'm going to do my best to separate the book from the movie. I didnt do a re-read. That way I wont be too disappointed.

Ok I saw it today and was very disappointed. It wasn't even good as just a movie, let alone one take from a great series of books. Thank goodness I only paid matinee prices

Thanks for the warning! Maybe when it gets to the dollar theater I'll think about going.

DIL asked me to go with her because we'd both read the books. Mildly entertaining. Character choices grew on me as the movie went on and I disassociated what I'd read from what I was seeing. Don't think you have to worry about seeing any of the rest of the books tho. which is too bad because Lula had about ten minutes of screen time total.

I've not read these books... but how disappointing for Evanovich's readers. Movie rights are where writers can make the big bucks, and if the first one stinks, there probably won't be more. frown

I didn't hate it but...wait for it to come out on DVD. There was something just a little off about Katherine Heigl's Stephanie Plum. She had a blank look on her face for most of the movie. Didn't warm up to the guy that portrayed Morelli. Didn't hate Daniel Sunjata as Ranger and Sherri Shepard as Lula was a good casting. Stephanie's parents and Grandma Mazur...bleh.
