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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical nice but weak romantic movie February 13, 2010
Format:DVD
This is one of those fish-out-of-water romantic comedies that plays up stereotypes and over exaggerates things in the name of being funny or cute. Many people like this. I happen to think it takes away from the potential of many of these types of movies. This is the story of a hard-charging female management type from Florida who is sent by her company to Minnesota in order to lay people off and re-organize the factory. Of course she goes in the middle of the winter so we have the jarring weather along with the culture shock of being in a Minnesota. The movie includes a number of stock situations for movies like this and very little that is innovative or fresh. I think the two main characters have a bit of chemistry, but they never seem to be put in situations where it can develop much. Whenever they end up together, something else usually happens to change the focus of the action. Finally, the ending is a feel-good finale. In any case, if you like the kind of movie in which a proud city person ends up learning lessons from rural folk, you might like this movie. If you are looking for a really good romantic movie, you should probably temper your expectations.
