  • This crap is supposed to be the chick flick antidote to Super Bowl fever. Ha! show more

  • Zellweger takes an otherwise passable mainstream comedy and all but ruins it with her lack of effort. show more

  • To say that New in Town is the worst movie of this fledgling year is to damn it with faint praise. It may be one of the worst movies of any year. Not content to be merely inane and predictable, it is downright insulting, humorlessly deriding those who choose to live in rural America, labor in factories or have a strong Christian faith. show more
