PG-13 | | Action, Comedy, Crime
Unemployed and newly-divorced Stephanie Plum lands a job at her cousin's bail-bond business, where her first assignment puts her on the trail of a wanted local cop from her romantic past.
The film was considered a box office disappointment by all involved and plans for a big screen adaptation of the second book in the series, "Two for the Dough", were scrapped.
Doing the bounty hunter thing. I'm going after Joe Morelli.
Bernie Kuntz: Didn't you run him over with a car?
Mr. Plum: Ugly rumor, never happened.
In addition to Stephanie referring to her cousin as "Sgt" Gazarra, we see him wearing both the single bar of the Lieutenant on his collar, and the double bars of a Capt. He obviously didn't get promoted, as we later see him wearing the Lt. bar again.
