Heigl’s foray into movies started auspiciously enough with her role opposite Seth Rogen in “Knocked Up.” Things went rapidly downhill after that, however. The only people who hated her next two rom-coms (“27 Dresses” and “The Ugly Truth”) more than critics were audiences, who simply stopped showing up and turned those two films into box office disasters. Another pair of flops (“Killers,” “Life as We Know It”) sealed the deal in 2010, just as Heigl was leaving “Grey’s Anatomy” seemingly for good. And things don’t seem to be getting any better. Her newest flick, “One for the Money,” opens this weekend after being pushed back from the 2011 summer block season into the barren wasteland of January releases. It’s no wonder she’s been hinting about a return to her TV roots. -Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
