Jersey Girl Alert!

The first Stephanie Plum novel (Janet Evanovich writes them) is coming out as a movie. Debbie Reynolds as Grandma Mazur! Can she play Hungarian?

The books are problematic in lots of ways, but they do capture and celebrate the Jersey/Philly working-class ethnic addytood. (This is something people there are *proud of*, not an external stereotype.) I'm just afraid the books will be WASPified beyond recognition.

The casting of Morelli and Ranger looks good. I'm not so sure about Katherine Heigl as Stephanie.

Anyone interested in going? I'll be away until 2/6, but I could see it opening night.
