    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

    It's unfunny at best and borderline-amateur at worst, notwithstanding the desperate efforts of Renée Zellweger. show more

    The first Hollywood feature from Danish filmmaker Jonas Elmer, New in Town is so choppy that it would seem to have been edited with a pickax. show more

    A romantic comedy that's neither romantic nor funny. show more

    Strictly old hat -- and a poorly assembled hat at that. show more

    Bob Mondello NPR

    There's no chemistry between Zellweger and Connick, and there's not a moment in which anything anyone does feels remotely plausible. show more

    It has a certain Midwestern charm that settles calmly in the stomach, making the viewer feel warm, comfortable, and quick to smile. show more

    Do you like this sort of rom-com? It's a fair example of its type, not good, but competent. show more

    Really enjoyed this movie. It was pretty much predictable, yet it was sweet and as mentioned before, no dirty language. What we really liked was that the outdoor scenes were actually in the cold. Hate when movies are supposed to be in the cold and no steam comes out of their mouths when they talk. You could tell they were cold. Made for a nice peaceful evening of movie watching.

    DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS MOVIE - IT WAS SO BAD! RENEE Z. SPENT MOST OF THE MOVIE MAKING FACES WHILE OTHERS TALKED. REALLY IT IS A GOOD RENTAL ONLY - BUT THE LAST PART WAS GOOD.

    I loved it. After a stressful week, it was perfect for an escape with some laughs and grins. Really liked that it was so clean w/no bad language (that you could actually hear) or nudity. Will see again with friends.

    I liked the movie; it had an important lesson about finding our core values. The simple life can teach us more than any other lifestyle. Renee is a great actress.

    Can you get any uglier than Rene Zellweger? She has those pig-squinty eyes, those puffy lips and that hideous voice. What a hag.

    The movie was cute, entertaining, and enjoyable. It wasn't a movie that told a sad story but one that entertained. And yes, I wish more movies were like this one. I'm from Minnesota and give this one a thumbs up. Go see it!
