New In Town

Renee Zellweger plays a power-dressing career girl, living a swanky beachside lifestyle in Miami. When her company sends her to a small town in Minnesota to work on the restructuring of a factory, she finds herself way outside her comfort zone – the locals are less than friendly and the weather’s colder still. But soon she finds her feelings towards the town - and the factory’s union rep, played by Harry Connick Jr. - changing, and by the time her company orders the closure of the factory, she’s ready to fight for the community’s survival.

The supporting cast includes the always entertaining JK Simmons (Spider-Man, Juno), Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) and Rashida Jones (The Office, US version).

It doesn't help that Zellweger, in an unfortunate attempt to make the aud appreciate her character's uptightness, spends many of the early scenes moving about as stiff as a flagpole in January.

Watching Ms. Zellweger’s joyless performance, you have to wonder what happened to this formerly charming actress who not so long ago seemed on the verge of becoming a softer, more vulnerable Shirley MacLaine.

Not even the normally charming Zellweger can save this one.

The new comedy is flat, the romance is listless, the pacing is sluggish, and the fish-out-of-water flops -- flip-flop, flip-flop, I can hear it still.

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