QUICK TAKE:
Action-Comedy: An unemployed lingerie saleswoman tries her hand as a bounty hunter, and her first assignment puts her on the trail of a former lover.
PLOT:
In Trenton, N.J., Stephanie Plum (KATHERINE HEIGL) is newly divorced and has lost her job as manager of the lingerie department at her local Macy's. Strapped from cash with her bills coming due, she decides to go to her cousin Vinny (PATRICK FISCHLER) who operates a bail-bond business. Intrigued at the amount of money bounty hunters/skip tracers can make, she decides to try and collect a bounty on Joe Morelli (JASON O'MARA), a former flame she once ran over with her car after he took her virginity back in high school.

Joe is an ex-cop accused of shooting an unarmed drug dealer. But he is innocent and is working on bringing down a local heroin ring possibly involving a local gym owner named Jimmy Alpha (JOHN LEGUIZAMO) and Hernandez (GAVIN-KEITH UMEH), a small-time boxer turned enforcer. His investigation is complicated by Stephanie's bumbling efforts to insinuate herself into the case after learning about the various players from local prostitutes Lula (SHERRI SHEPARD) and Jackie (RYAN MICHELLE BATHE).

At the same time, she has to continually explain herself to her worrying mother (DEBRA MUNK), exasperated father (LOUIS MUSTILLO), and meddlesome grandmother (DEBBIE REYNOLDS). She also shares a flirtation and a friendship with Ranger (DANIEL SUNJATA), who tries to teach her the tricks of the trade and save her from herself as she gets deeper and deeper into the local crime scene.

    I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

    I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

    I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

    Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
