Movie night with the future Mrs - we went to see NEW IN TOWN.

The best way to describe this is: Sweet Home Alabama meets the secondary cast of weirdos from an Adam Sandler movie.

The basic story: an exec is sent from her company's headquarters to the middle of nowhere (in this case, Minnesota) to prepare the company for automation and eventual shutdown. She's cold, calculating, and doesn't give a f*ck...and uses five dollar words sparingly.

Of course, she meets the town hunk, and the town and everything melts her heart.

To be honest, everything in this movie could be seen from a mile away. It's incredibly predictable. I mean, even the moment of conflict before the third act could have been predicted within five minutes of the start of the movie.

The supporting cast talks in a really terrible accent; I've never been through Minnesota, but I'm sure the locals of any small town don't talk like these guys, don'cha know? Think redneck twang meets someone from Holland. Uh huh.

Part of the movie was filmed in Winnipeg, which was cool: I'm sure either Tribal Prophet or Raygun would recognize a few of the sights.

The chemistry between Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. was non-existant, unfortunately. That sucked because the movie was built around that.

Highlight of the movie was the always watchable and always entertaining JK Simmons...though, once again, the accent had to go.

It's a stupid movie, and it's not even cute or romantic enough to be considered a chick flick...I'd have to give NEW IN TOWN a 1.5 out of 5...but I'll give it a 2.5 because Michelle enjoyed it.

This is one of my top 3 favorite shows on right now. I loved Ned Ryerson. BING! I'm usually clueless and didn't pick up on the Police Lt. being fulcrum until it was revealed.
