New in Town

This is a kinda cute movie....as far as romantic comedies go I would say it is completely average. I will tell you that I did a double-header last Friday--this one and Slumdog (for the 4th time) and I had a moment of extreme sadness when I looked around the Slumdog theater--at the 15 people there and was sad b/c the New in Town theater was completely packed. Why do people see lame-ass movies when completely fabulous ones are available?

That aside, here are a few romantic comedies that are better than New in Town:

  • Return to Me
  • The Holiday
  • 27 Dresses
  • Waitress
  • The Notebook
  • Juno
And a few that aren't as good as New in Town:
  • Just Married
  • Fool's Gold (I haven't seen this but I am sure it is worse)
  • Good Luck Chuck (also haven't seen this one but Vanessa says it's lame)

There are mainly 2 good things about this movie:

  1. Harry Connick, Jr.
  2. The Minnesotans

Just take it from me---go see Slumdog Millionaire instead!!!

I liked the show. I thought it was funny. Harry Connick Jr. is really cute in it. I am not a huge Renee fan but she didn't bug me as bad as I thought she would. I would say go see it. It's cute.
