Editorial Reviews

Award-winning actress Renée Zellweger stars as Lucy Hill, a high-powered executive in love with her upscale Miami lifestyle. Seeking to snag a big promotion, Lucy agrees to move to a remote Minnesota town to oversee the restructuring of a blue-collar manufacturing plant. After enduring icy roads, freezing weather and a chilly reception from the locals, she soon warms up to the small town and its people – especially the town’s handsome union representative (Harry Connick, Jr.). What begins as a job assignment becomes the best thing ever to happen to her, in this heartwarming comedy that proves that the warmest people are often in the coldest places.

When I saw a trailer for this film, I saw it compared with "Fargo," the Coen brothers classic. My spouse and I were both in need of a laugh so we went to see it.

I must agree with at least one other review that it's an absurdly predictable story. Boy meets girl, they despise each other, yet fall in love and they all live happily ever after. That element of the story was a letdown. But there were enough laughs to redeem the story.

I'll paraphrase, and perhaps add a little to another review: Rene plays Lucy Hill, a rising Yuppie corporate exec based in Miami. The company decides to send someone to Minnesota to close one of their plants. None of the guys will do it so Lucy volunteers. She, in true, corporate tradition, has her eye on corporate VP, something she's going to get when she faithfully fulfills the company's goals, right?

Well, when she gets to MN, she has so little perception of the conditions--cold, slippery--that she is, alas, a fish out of water. She meets her assistant, masterfully performed by Siobhan Fallon, who is an exaggeration of Frances McDormand's role in "Fargo." Her one-liners had both my spouse and I "ROFL"ing. I do have a comment though on Fallon's (Blanche Gunderson's) monolog: She asked Lucy if she's found Jesus, and that became the cause for a burst of laughter from both Lucy and presumably the audience. I thought that question to be slightly incongruous; it's something one would have more likely experienced in, say, Mississippi or Georgia than in New Ulm, MN.

Well, then, Lucy, while secretly trying to close the plant, meets fireman Ted Mitchell (Harry Connick) when she flew off the icy road. They eventually fall in love... Well, the synopsis has already been written here so I won't repeat it.

This is one of my favorite movies. If you are from the midwest or have visited someone in the midwest especially in the winter you will find this movie funny. I am from California and married someone from northern Michigan so I can relate to Renee's character in the movie as she is from Florida. I have had several trips to Michigan/midwest and discovered a totally different type of living than what I have experienced in Los Angeles. I laughed and found it very heart warming.

First let me say that I am surprised that this got such a bad review here. I went to see this movie with my mom. I didn't know how it would be when the first past came on. But I was very happy to have seen it when it had ended. I think this movie is really funny if your not thinking that it's going to make you laugh the entire way through. It gave me the feeling that I got when I was a kid watching movies that were for my age. Does that make sense? I think what I'm saying is that it worked perfectly.

Renee Zellweger is great. She is so beautiful and acts so well. She can make you laugh without making look as though she tries and she really makes you feel what her character is feeling. I'm not sure of the last movie I saw her in. But after seeing this, I look forward to her next film. Harry Connick Jr. is another actor who is great. He does such a great job of being the guy is is supposed to be in this film. He never gives you the feeling of seeing someone over act. He plays his part calm and cool. For a guy who is such a good singer and actor, we sure don't see much of him. All the actors in this movie act very well. You get the feeling that you know them, and you can understand what they're going through. It kind of reminded me of Fargo at first. I hated that movie. But I loved this one.

The movies is about Lucy Hill (Renée Zellweger), who is picked to go and restructure a factory that is out of state. When she gets there she starts out with some trouble. Some things happen and she sees this guy Ted Mitchell (Harry Connick, Jr.) She Insults him and thinks he is a slob. Come to find out he is the union rep for the company she has been sent to restructure. She is a women who does not want any ones help.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Harold Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWER on June 11, 2009
Format: DVD
Why does many reviewers automatically run down a movie one star because they guess ahead that the star female lead will fall in love with the star male lead? Of course! Studios don't make movies to loose money. Everyone knows that Scrooge will change his attitude in "A Christmas Carol" but does that make Charles Dicken's a bad writer? NO WAY.

So expect the expected but enjoy the funny, romantic, suspense, and characterization that is to be viewed along the way. That's what makes this movie so nice--so honestly 5-star good.

Take Lucy Hill (Renee Zellweger), the lone female of the corporate executive pool in a company needing someone to head to Minnesota, the arctic, to rid the company of losses and half a factory work force. Predictable because you know the lady-exec will get the draft, and you know the outcome will turn out positive. You also know that Zellweger will be sexy, completely believable, and outstanding in her portrayal of the lady-executive with an attitude needing changed--LIKE EBENEZER. She has you going "Ah!, Yuck!, whistling, applauding, & laughing during "New In Town."

Expect to laugh uncontrollably when Ms. Hill flies into the much colder-than-expected Minnesota. Then, arriving as a dinner guest, after removing her jacket [OTHERS MIGHT CONSIDER THIS SOMETHING OF A SPOILER]-----------------------she removed her light weight jacket and the housewife suggested she might need to keep wearing it because she "looked cold."

If you want bloody, vulgar, non-stop action, unrealistic suspense, dismemberment, and nudity, your not wanting this PG movie. It only has fun, humor, tenderness, and a positive turning about of ethics and character. GOOD STUFF in Charles Dicken's day, GOOD STUFF in Zellweger and Harry Connick, Jr. days.
