    5.0 out of 5 stars Zellweger Brings "Betty" To Life September 25, 2000
    A young waitress in a small town in Kansas witnesses an act of violence so unspeakable that her mind refuses to accept it; instead, like a ray of light reflected through a prism, she takes a detour within herself and enters a reality in which things are just a little bit better and nicer, one that fuses with the world of her favorite soap opera wherein resides the "doctor" of her dreams. Renee Zellweger stars in "Nurse Betty," a satirical comedy/drama with some serious psychological overtones from director Neil LaBute. It's an objective look at, among other things, small town life, the aesthetics of professional hit men, an unhealthy (?) obsession with soap operas, and the ethics of car salesmen. One thing is certain: After the aforementioned incident, Dorothy isn't in Kansas anymore. And her story becomes an odyssey of sorts, one that is both exhilarating and hilarious, and by turn somber and disturbing. Since those with whom Betty comes into contact do not realize that she is dwelling within a reality of her own design, it creates moments of absolute side-splitting hilarity as they try to figure out what is going on with her; is she putting them on, or is she in fact, deranged? But at the same time, even as you're laughing, there is an element of discomfort about it, because you know the truth of it all, and what a sad and serious situation it really is. You feel, not only for Betty, but for all of those involved with her as well, and it's like manic depression; you ride the wild highs, but come down just as hard. As Betty, Renee Zellweger gives what just may be the best performance of her career; there is such a gentleness of nature about her, a winsomeness and pacificism that makes her such a wonderfully sympathetic character.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Feel-Good Movie! January 27, 2001
    This movie is a wonderful low-key comedy starring Renee Zellwegger in her brilliant performance as Betty, who believes she's a nurse on a popular soap opera after going in shock from witnessing her husband's horrific murder. The two hitmen who killed her husband are the suprizingly hilarious duo, Chris Rock and Morgan Freeman. The plot twists and turns as we follow Betty from her rural mid-west hometown to Hollywood because she believes that she is a nurse who is in love with an arrogant doctor, played fittingly by Greg Kinnear. Morgan Freeman steals the laughs from Chris Rock as they follow Betty, who's the only witness to the murder, across the country and always one step behind her. Everyone will enjoy this movie for it's talented actors, it's comedy and it's "warm and fuzzy" ending.

    4.0 out of 5 stars OVERLOOKED GEM March 26, 2001
    By EriKa
    Format:VHS Tape
    A complete departure for director Neil LaBute, his third film and first "major" vehicle, it is an amazing piece which actually turns in the total opposite direction of his first films which were not hopeful or friendly to the more human and sympathetic aspects of people. Don't get me wrong... there are still ugly, criminal, and cruel people populating this film, but this time there is a balance... and the balance is struck beautifully. Renée Zellweger is her charming self, playing the plucky soap opera addicted Kansas waitress, Betty, who is married to a corrupt car salesman played brilliantly by Aaron Eckhart. Eckhart has shady business deals going (as well as adulterous affairs). Two hit men (Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock, who are both excellent) come to town to kill him and do so most gruesomely. However, they do not realise that Betty is home and witnesses the murder. (They have previously met Betty, though, because she was their waitress at the diner). Betty is watching a videotape of her favourite soap and its heartthrob doctor (played well by Greg Kinnear) when the murder takes place. As some sort of psychological defence mechanism Betty assumes a new personality and believes that she is a nurse and the fiancée of Kinnear's character. She assumes a false life as her own, gets in the car and drives to California to reclaim that life. Things go along swimmingly at first, and the people who meet her do not realise how seriously she takes this assumed life. Most think she is joking, others think she is an overly ambitious actress trying to work her way into the soap opera. She meets the writers and stars of the soap opera, and it is only when she is told that she is going to have a walk on bit part on the soap that she "snaps out" of this psychological trauma.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nurse Betty is a curious film.... July 26, 2003
    that is very different from the cynical first two efforts of Director Neil LaBute. LaBute is working with someone else's script this time, and that may be the reason this film was more successful than his first two efforts. A dark comedy with some surprisingly graphic violence, this is definitely a departure from his character driven ensembles that have you liking absolutely no one.
    It's hard not to like Betty -- she's a down on her luck waitress that has an absolutely golden presence. Who couldn't like her? It's difficult to know whether Zellweger's more likeable here, as Bridget, or in her "Chicago" role. In a very short time, she has established herself as leading lady material, and the camera loves her. As Betty, her crush on a soap opera star (Greg Kinnear as Actor George McCord) who is a doctor in his role, becomes more serious when her low-life husband is killed by two mobsters. Betty witnesses the murder, and unknowingly takes the car that has the merchandise the mobsters are searching for. When Betty leaves her small-town life for LA, she's disassociated from reality and is going to find "Dr. Ravell" her real love.
    Kinnear is charming and alternately confused and attracted to Betty (who acts as a nurse in the soap opera). Morgan Freeman is terrific as Charlie, from the mob, who can't help his attraction to Betty, despite his mission. Only Chris Rock, who plays Charlie's son, seems to be miscast, in a whiny and bitter role. Chris -- you CAN play comedy! The screen shines when Zellweger is on it, and you are ultimately drawn into her world and are there when it comes crashing down around her.
    LaBute did a marvelous job with the film, but the DVD extras are sparse and some of the deleted scenes are truly distasteful.

    Nurse Betty is a sick piece of work and those who made it should be ashamed of themselves. It is not a comedy. Only sick people would find torture to be amusing.
