After losing her job, Jersey girl Stephanie Plum is broke. Needing a job she is told that her cousin, a bail bondsman, needs someone to help out in the office.

She tries to find someone who can prove his innocence, but the problem is that shortly after meeting with them they're killed or attacked.Written by
In the novel, Big Blue is a powder blue 1953 Buick Roadmaster. In the film, it is a much darker blue 1976 Buick Electra. See more »
In the first lock picking scene ranger is picking a door knob. The tension wrench used is being held with a full grip and rotated CCW. The CCW may be correct but, tension wrenches are turned with a light pressure of the thumb to receive "feedback" from the pins. Gripping a tension wrench like this would make it almost impossible to pick a lock. See more »
The clock on the dash told me I was five minutes late, and a lifetime with my mother told me she'd think that meant I was dead.
I thought you were dead!
Five minutes late, Ma. What's for dinner?
Dried out, but...
As for my dad, those five minutes were spent contemplating how to kill Grandma Mazur and where to bury the body.

First of I just learned that this film was based on a novel, and that it's the first of like 23 stories about this woman bountyhunter. So my viewpoint is based on the film, and nothing else.
I had a lot of fun with this one. It reminded me of an other character from an entirely different novel series. There the tough girl is called Anita Blake and she is a vampire hunter. Same way she starts clumsy and comes out on top in a manly (albeit fantastic) occupation. She handles guns, she gets into rough situations. I'm a man, but it's still fun seeing a woman being tough. And similarly to Anita Blake, this girl stays a woman while being though.
All the other characters were great too, my favourite was Ranger I guess, I liked the professional attitude.
To all those who think it's a bad film because it's not like the novels: I haven't read those books, but I was entertained with this film. I may even read into those books, so I guess the film reached it's goal.
