"One for the Money" Movie Review
Just a few weeks later, the movie came out and talked everyone into going on opening night. I don't see things often on opening day because I know it will be crowded, but I knew nothing about the movie until a few weeks before it was coming out, and I figured, how bad can it be? Turns out, IT WAS TWILIGHT BAD! So many women, EVERYWHERE! lol. Nevertheless, besides being a bit claustrophobic, I enjoyed the movie immensely! I think the movie caught all the big scenes and the ones that they had to condense worked well. The only thing that disappointed me was that the movie was not nearly as scary as parts of the book were. When Stephanie is being taunted by Ramirez, I was freaked in the book. In the movie, his taunting was diluted to one message left on her answering machine! Ramirez was barely a part of the movie, when I would have counted him as the fourth or fifth biggest character in the book! Other than that, I was thoroughly entertained.
My friend would probably add that she thought Ranger talked too much in the movie lol. She said that he should have been more of the sexy silent type. She's a major Ranger fan, though.
Well, what did you think? Of the book? The Movie?
