3.5 out of 10 Some very funny moments
Linda from Cork, 26 Jul 2009
Basis of the story is Renee moves from big city to a small town in Minnesota for work and meets Harry Connick Jnr. It was predictable but fortunately they didn't overdo it on the soppiness. It took me about 30mins to get into the film and care what was going on but the funny parts make it worthwhile. There was one scene where Renee goes to take a leak but can't undo the zipper on her suit. The whole scene made me cry with laughter. Def worth watching it for that! The Minnesota accents are awful

1 out of 10 obvious
dave from Meath, 09 Sep 2009
Not exactly a edge of your seat thriller, but what did you expect from a romantic comedy? The usual ingredients, however, are missing from this badly scripted uninteresting B movie. The characters are odd, to say the least, Renee looks even odder (bring back Bridget my wife says) but overall this would have been better if they tried a dark comedy angle. Tuesday night watchable - maybe!

1.5 out of 10 the trailers mde it sound better than it wasa
Petra from Dublin, 10 Aug 2009
It's very predictable - as has been said. I'm also not a Renee fan. Unfortunately it just seems like a story I must have heard or seen somewhere. But it has it's comical moments, so if you just want to kick back with popcorn it's not too bad. It is no blockbuster but it's watchable.

1.5 out of 10 Not so great
Mary from Galway, 15 Jul 2009
If you liked Fargo, then you will love this film. Unfortunately I didn't and so this film was a drag. Renee Z does her best and it's quite funny in parts but very predictable.

1 out of 10 cheesy
Maria from Louth, 15 Sep 2009
This is not Renee's best film. It can be sweet in places but overall, very cheesy. There is no chemistry between the leads.

What's it about....
Renee Zellweger plays Lucy Hill, a high-powered professional who ends up as the proverbial fish out of water when she is sent from her luxurious Miami lifestyle to folksy Minnesota on work. The locals don't quite meet her with open arms and the weather is just as welcoming but she eventually finds herself fitting in. When work commitments mean she has to do something which will damage the community, she has to reassess what she wants and find a way to save the town.
