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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable romance, but hysterical February 4, 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Midwest fun August 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Movies like they made when they made movies. February 13, 2009
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reminds me of home October 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Funny. Renae does a great job and Harry is always good. Love the Minnesota accents but loved the strong faith represented in the film. It does change hearts. Good film and a great plot, seems to remind me of living in this state in a small town with small town politics. This film about sums it up. Good job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Feel Good Movie! August 14, 2009
I was thinking this would be a typical boring romance, but I really enjoyed this movie. It was predictable, but a feel good movie. I didn't give it 5 stars due to the predictability, but I think it deserves 4 stars. I enjoyed Harry Connick JR and Renee Zellweger as well. Not sure if I would purchase this movie, but I enjoyed renting it, and am glad I saw it.

There is a quiet fireside scene between stars Renée Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. on a couch about midway through this 2009 rom-com. It lasts a couple of minutes, and that is one of the very few redeemable qualities that this otherwise flat and predictable film has to offer. It's no wonder that this movie came and went very quickly in theaters because I'm really amazed at how poorly constructed it is by Danish director Jonas Elmer and how overly reliant it is on cutesy humor and dated stereotypes. I thought Zellweger already went down the path of the smug career woman with her unctuous turn as a Doris Day wannabe in Peyton Reed's retro-kitschy Down with Love, but it looks like she is going down the well once again with even less fortuitous results this time. She plays Lucy Hill, a cutthroat middle management executive on the fast track in a Miami-based food processing conglomerate. Sent to the arctic-level cold of New Ulm, Minnesota, Lucy has been assigned to dismantle and downsize operations in order to produce a new snack bar line.

Tough as nails with the high heels to match, Lucy is unsurprisingly hated by most of the townsfolk with two exceptions. One is her devoted secretary, Blanche Gunderson, who has a secret tapioca recipe that figures into the by-the-numbers plot, and the other is Ted Mitchell, the local union representative who pushes Lucy off her self-anointed pedestal only to find himself falling in love with her. The film's first half is marked by all the typical fish-out-of-water clichés that co-screenwriters Kenneth Rance and C. Jay Cox could resuscitate, or at least copy from Charles Shyer's
