One For The Money

How realistic is this portrayal of the bail bond business? What stereotypes does this movie support? What job qualities does Stephanie bring to this position?

What dangerous things does Stephanie continue to do, even though she is supposed to be afraid for her life? What is the likelihood that she would be able to evade the thugs who are after her?

This movie mixes romantic comedy with action. Does this combination work for you? What other films do this more successfully?

One For The Money is based on a book by Janet Evanovich.
