Summary: New in Town drove me out. Really poor script, no laughs whatsoever, and bad acting. The movie is bland and utterly worthless, and the ending is barely existent; it just sort of ends when the writers got bored.
Summary: The first and biggest problem this film has is the fact that it is a romantic comedy. Being one, it does not deviate from the typical rom-com recipe, what-so-ever. Being rather predictable (and by rather I mean completely to an annoying degree), the film does not offer anything new to the audience.
Summary: I have no clue why some of these unfair and off balance reviews. I was expecting this movie to be very simple and average, I was pleasantly surprised and found it very funny and to have a great story line and heart warming lesson or two. Perhaps some of the stereotyping offended some?
Summary: This film is about a business woman from a big city who got transferred to a small town. She encounters much trouble adjusting to the small town life. "New In Town" is another romantic comedy with Renee Zellweger as a person who achieves despite her mischievousness.
Summary: If Renee Zelweger were any cuter, I think world peace might be possible after all. But it's her character in this romantic comedy that… will get you hooked. NEW IN TOWN is surprisingly funny story of adjusting and falling in love with more than just a person.
Summary: Guess what is not new in town at your local movie theatre? Another formulaic romantic comedy. This one is called "New in Town" but old in design. Not new= a female protagonist trying to prove that she can tackle any challenge.
Summary: The IMDb ratings were low (5.2) and I was expecting to regret my decision to go to the movies. Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick, Jr., were certainly a draw but it was the low matinée price and the fact that I had plenty of time and nothing better to do that got me in the door.
Summary: Although a personal Zellweger fan myself, I did not feel that this was one of her shining moments. The movie was predictable-one of many romantic comedy plots that have graced the screens of theatres.
Summary: This movie is hilarious! I usually go by IMDb's rating and so the 5.3 average got me entering the movie theater reluctantly. Boy, was I surprised. OK, I'm sure Minnesotans feel they're being made fun of. Even to my Dutch ears the Minnesotan accent sounds more French than anything.
