Review of film: “NEW IN TOWN” – Baby, it’s COLD Outside (tho the story is warm)

Review of film:    NEW IN TOWN  Baby, it’s COLD Outside (tho the story is warm) =   
                  [ Rating:  7.25 of 10 stars ]
Date Rated: Jan 29, 2009 | Rel. Date: Jan 30, 2009
(Based on advance preview:) I found this film to be more ROMANTIC than comedy...

...  RENEE ZELLWEGER plays an uptight, upwardly-mobile executive who’s sent from Florida to revamp the food company’s division in a small town in Minnesota...

...  It’s winter, she’s massively unprepared for the weather, and people such as her assistant Blanche (SIOBHAN FALLON HOGAN) and Union rep Ted (played by HARRY CONNICK, JR.) work to try to help her acclimate to her surroundings and get along with the work force...

...  The employees don’t know what the company’s overall plan is, and there are somewhat typical misunderstandings and machinations as she grows increasingly attached to the workers and tries to change the plans the headquarters has for the branch...

...  It’s fairly predictable, just mildly funny, but a generally warm-hearted diversion. In other words, it’s effectively “Pleasant”. I rate it as I do because the acting is decent and it succeeds in its minor ambitions.
