One for the Money Trailer

I ran across this trailer for the upcoming movie based on the first book in Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series over at the excellent Bookyurt and had to share it here. This one's been a long time in the making. I discovered these books at a somewhat trying time in life, and they brought a lot of laughter and fun into my long days. And while the series itself has grown too long-winded for words, I will be going to see Stephanie, Lula, and the gang on the big screen. Even if they did cast Katherine Heigl. *sigh* 
So what do you think Plum fans? Yay or nay?

Comments

  1. I can't stand Katherine Heigl, but I'll probably see this it looks entertaining enough

  2. you know, I am actually thinking this could be pretty decent. It's probably just my love for Stephanie Plum coming through.

  3. I didn't really like Katherine as Stephanie but that was a pretty good trailer. I'm actually excited for the movie now! Thanks for posting it, I didn't even know the trailer was out.

  4. I like Katherine Heigl but she doesn't exactly seem like the type to be Stephanie Plum. Maybe it''ll take some time to get used to seeing her as that character...but the trailer does look pretty good!

  5. I've been pretty nervous to watch this trailer cause really? Katherine Heigl? But it looks promising. Mainly I just want Grandma and Lula to be dead hilarious.

    Sadly, I'm guessing they aren't going to have Stephanie running around in classic Stephanie outfits like spandex shorts and baggy jerseys...

  6. Oooo Heigl? There doesn't seem to be an awful lot of love for her, but the trailer definitely has me sold on seeing the movie, so long as it has Grandma Mazur and Lulu in it I'll be happy as a clam.

  7. I haven't read the books but the movie looks cute and I know the books are usually better.

  8. I'm so glad you posted this, I hadn't seen it yet!

    I'm looking forward to this a lot, I love Katherine Heigl :)

    The good thing about this CRAZY LONG SERIES is that they can basically make it into...what do you think? two (MAYBE 3) movies and include absolutely all the plot development from the 17+ books.

    I... don't think I've seen Katherine Heigl in anything that has stuck in my memory so I'm not too worried about it in general. I might change my mind when I go to see it.

    Like you, Angie, the books came to me at a very trying time in life and I started with book 3 (which I think was good because the writing in book 1 wouldn't have had me running back for more). I now own them all up until book 13ish, more or less, and they're some of the only books I have in used form because I wanted them so badly, I snapped them up as soon as I saw them. I am sad to hear the series got more convoluted as it went on; I checked out early I think out of an unconscious desire to avoid Anita Blake Syndrome should it appear, but I love the books so hard.

    At first when I saw the trailer, I was a little "!!!" about Morelli and Ranger but by the end of the trailer I was squealing. I am so glad they avoided obvious casting choices like David Boringaz for Morelli because it could have gone badly. - Elle

  10. I am cautiously optimistic after seeing the trailer, although I am not sold on the choice of Heigel. Never mind!

  11. I think it looks like it could be pretty fun. Katherine Heigl isn't anything like what I think of Stephanie Plum, but since I got tired of the books after #4 or 5, I'm willing to give her a shot.

  12. I was worried when I heard the rumor that this would be a TV show. Movie, I can handle. I couldn't read past the first book in this series, but the trailer looks more appetizing than I found the books to be.

  13. Not a Katherine Heigl fan at all but after seeing the trailer I almost think she's gonna be able to pull it off. I really don't give a flip if she does or not since I'm only going to watch Jason O'Mara score a big WIN for Team Morelli.

  14. Rebs, agreed.

    Alicia, I have high hopes of much fond laughter. :)

    Kristina, that's how I feel about it. She's not right, but the whole thing looks fun.

    Sandy, exactly.

    Michelle, lol. You're probably right. But I'm with you on Grandma and Lula. hehehe.

    Holly, and me.

    Jenny, the book is a bit grittier actually. But just the first one. They get progressively lighter and funnier from there on out.

    Allison, so true. I mean each book takes place over a period of--what--a week? Maybe? lol.

    Elle, I feel the same way about her. She's rather pleasantly forgettable. It's nice to hear you read these at the right time as well. I simply tore through them, incredibly relieved to be laughing so hard. It's funny you mention the Anita books. I checked out of them veeeeery early on after having heard how nutjob they got. The Plums didn't get crazy, they merely got formulaic. Also, no choosing between Morelli and Ranger. I'm all for the hotness of those two, but come on! A girl's gotta choose eventually. And I felt the same way by the end of the trailer. HUGE grin on my face...

    Marg, I'm in perfect agreement with you.

    Misti, this is how I should go into it. Willing to give her a shot.

    Janice, the first is the hardest to read, I think. But you do have to be in the mood for mindless entertainment and hilarious antics. I'm also very glad it's a movie and not a series.

    Laura, I hope you're right. So you're a cupcake, eh? I'm really more of a babe, myself . . . probably best we don't have to fight over them. ;)

  15. I can't wait. I know, Kathrine isn't who I would cast as Steph. but God. This movie will be something to laugh at. Either if it bombs (which I hope not) or it it rocks. Its going to be funny

  16. I tried to read the books and did not like them. The movie looks a bit more intersting.

  17. Kristen might not be that bad. She's so annoying because she gets casts in annoying roles. Relieved of that burden, I'm hoping she's all right.

    What was the male lead's name? I'm blanking on it, but I've liked his work

    Unfortunately, I'll have to pass. I really can't watch K Heigl in anything. I usually like Jason O' Mara, but I don't like the accent he's using for this and reminds me of a demented Mel Gibson! KarenS

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin
