Year 3 Day 85

movie: New in Town
starring: Renee Zellweger, Harry Connick Jr.
genre: Comedy, Romance
year: 2009
format: TV edit

plot: When a small town factory is scheduled for closing, a high powered exec is sent to over see the deal, but ends up finding herself befriending the town, and helping them to save the factory.

Shot in Canada, this American-Canadian film is pretty much what you would expect out of the romantic comedy genre. The big shot falls in love with the little town and the one single guy who everyone knows she'll end up with.
Yet another of those I didn't love it but I didn't hate it films. Connick spends most of the movie looking like a typical winter lumberjack with a beard, which is actually a good look on him.  Zellweger carries the whole movie, giving a bit of her Bridget Jones physical comedy style to anchor the character.
