    VERY FUNNY & TOUCHING

    In today's economy, with companies down-sizing or closing, this movie was reality... To one's heart it was a very heart warming & very funny... Am a fan of Renee Zellweger & Harry Connick and they delivered a great match for each other...

    Midwest Meet Miami.

    *Hilarious costumes and culture shock, right at the start make for a fun-n-y comedy. *Great entertainment. *Funny moments. *Inspiring & uplifting. *Encourages you to overcome obstacles and hindrances. *Helps you to focus on the fact that people are humans and they have feelings just as you do. *Wonderful acting by Renee Zellweger, Harry Connick, Jr. Siobhan Fallon Hogan, Frances Conroy, and J.K. Simmons. *A Minnesota fairy tale. New In Town was a fun movie. If you like trying new adventures, you may want to try this next DVD titled "Whip It!" Here is a review for it: Derby Divas. The movie "Whip It!" from 2009: anger & aggression are encouraged, and violence is a past-time for these "wild women." Drew Barrymore and the crew are absolutely "crazy" and out-of-control. *Mayhem and destruction are the norm, this DVD is a riot! Once you get passed the violence, inappropriate language & behavior it is a laugh-out-loud (LOL!) adventure. * Great storyline and entertaining character development.

    Ok - drew me to tried and true funny premiss - it had to be good, right?

    I though the movie went along at a pretty fast clip and didn't drag for me. I especially liked Harry Connick Jr.'s role and performance although Renee Zellweger was fine. Some of the scenery in the movie was very appealing to look at. All in all a pleasant escape movie that has a good ending.

    OK Movie

    The movie is ok. Makes you laugh at times, but coming from MN we aren't exactly like they portray in the movie. It was fun to see how they react to the cold, because we've seen first hand that people don't realize that 0 degrees is colder than standing in a freezer. However being that this movie was filmed in Canada vs. in New Ulm itself it was kind of dissapointing. New Ulm is a beautiful town, and this movie showed buildings that were real dull compared to the real thing. I rated it overall as a 2, mainly on the fact that I felt that it made fun of MN people. We don't talk funny, make pudding all the time, and scrap-book like crazy.

    Very Funny

    I enjoyed the movie very much. Renea and Harry really make this movie believable.

    New in Town - A sweet and humorous movie

    This movie was so refreshing to see. A romantic comedy that was truly reminiscent of the 1930's screwball movies. It was as clean as those movies. It was cute, funny and sweet. I enjoyed all the characters and story. It was good enough to hold my and my husband's interest. It's not academy award material but it is still fun to see.

    New In Town

    When I first saw the TV trailer for "New in Town", I expected a great, witty, movie. When I put in the DVD, it was not what I expected. The plot was okay, even though it took me a long while to understand what was going on. I feel bad for the people in Minnesota, who are claimed to be scrap-booking, pudding-makers who have those strange accents(not Minnesota people, the actors and actresses' "Minnesota" accents). You could tell when there was supposedly a joke, even though the humor wasn't that grand. The acting was pretty good, except for the case (like I said before) about some of the "Minnesota" actors and actresses. I might recommend this to someone, but I highly doubt it.
