Product Description

Romantic comedy starring Renee Zellwegger and Harry Connick Jr. Lucy Hill (Zellwegger) is a high-powered businesswoman living a luxury life in Miami. When she is sent to a small town in icy Minnesota to oversee the restructuring of a blue collar manufacturing plant, the adjustment process takes a while. But as she gets used to small-town life, and falls in love with one of the factory's employees, union rep Ted Mitchell (Connick Jr), she comes to reconsider her own goals and priorities.

3.0 out of 5 stars the Ice Woman cometh . . . 6 Mar 2009
Every man must do his duty and so I did mine taking the girlfriend to see this movie. Renee Zellwegger, queen of the genre "chickus flickus" swaps her big pants for killer heels as ruthless career woman Lucy Hill in this small town/big town rom-com.

Drawing the short straw and unceremoniously dispatched from sunny Miami to a freezing small town in Minnesota (near Canada apparently), the unfortunate Ms Hill's task is to halve the headcount of the Muncke food processing plant; the town's main source of employment and it's lifeblood. After kitting herself out from head to toe in North Face, she surprisingly finds herself warming to the town and it's welcoming (for the most part) people and in particular Ted Mitchell, the union rep (Harry Connick Jr.) thus causing a serious conflict of interest. Rescued from the snow by the bearded "beer drinking pick-up driving loser", her heart slowly melts and she finds herself empathising...and more with the townspeople.

This is gentle stuff, all well acted, if a little predictable but none the worse for it. The "fish out of water" card is played but not overly so, same goes for the small town/big town resentments and clichés. This part was written for Zellwegger who can wear killer heels or anoraks and look hot and girl-next-door in the same film. Small town "hicks" come out on top, of course, but that's the nature of this type of movie and it's not bad stuff.

This has mum's birthday/Christmas/Mother's Day present written all over it. I'm just glad I didn't have to sit through Momma Mia (7/10)

4.0 out of 5 stars Have a Thoroughly Enjoyable Evening! 4 Dec 2010
By James Gallen TOP 1000 REVIEWER
"New In Town" is a romantical comedy set in a cold (in more ways than one), small town in Minnesota. Lucy Hill, played by Renee Zellweger, comes into town to manage a traditional home town plant with instructions to mechanize and downsize. This is a predictable story of conflict and conversion as Lucy and the workers, especially the union representative, played by Harry Connick, Jr., clash and win each other over. Amidst the story is a series of downright funny incidents. I am generally not a movie fan but my daughter told me that this was a family movie so I gave it a try. She was right! We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. You have one too!

OK. Head's above the parapet time! I bought this in HMV so that my wife and I could sit down and just watch an enjoyable easy-going film.
Having read the info on the back of the DVD jacket I had a very, very good idea on how this was going to go, and indeed I was nearly 100% right (we didn't get an ending with a marriage ceremony or during a visit by the grouchy suits at Miami Head Office one or all of them taking a tumble in snow, moose crap or a food vat).
It was a light, funny and generous film, and one I would recommend to anyone who wants to just sit back, kick off the shoes and the cares of the world. Good work by the cast!
And that is absolutely, positively, certainly well and good by me.
I just might buy the Soundtrack CD
By-the-by if you think Renee Zellweger is pure lite-weight watch Cold Mountain or Nurse Betty

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL 28 Oct 2013
By Sandie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I actually purchased two copies of New in Town and sent one to my sister as I love the film that much. I think it is a lovely chick flick and it never fails to cheer me up especially as I am a big fan of Harry Connick Jr and Renee. If the DVD wears out due to contact watching I will most certainly replace it as I love this film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needed more humour 28 Sep 2012
For a romcom, this movie seemed more Rom and less Com. It was the viewing equivilent of easy listening music. Very predictable, very easy on the viewer, but could have done with more laughs along the way and a bit more to the plot, which would have made it feel more involving. It's not a bad movie per se, but not one I'd watch again and again, if you see what I mean?

3.0 out of 5 stars This Isn't What Blu Was Made For 30 Mar 2010
New In Town is a good film, don't get me wrong, Renee Zelwegger trying to improve a town in turmoil is funny and heart warming, but sadly this blu-ray doesn't even get close, the picture is not as good as the standard def edition, which is disappointing. The colour is good, but it's just not as glitzy as Stranger Than Fiction on Blu-Ray. The sound wasn't particularly impressive either, which was disappointing too. This is no where as good as Entertainment In Video's last release - Rush Hour 3, which was high bitrate, and good quality, with rich sound.

Definitely not worth buying, this offers nothing over the standard definition version, which is really a shame.
