New in Town: Nothing Actually New

Renee Zellweger continues her bid to be America's new darling girl with the rom-com New In Town. Zells looks like a high-powered L.A. woman type who gets sent out to down home Minnesota for a down home dressing down. Her high falutin' coast mentality gets a solid, frosty kick in the pants and she comes down a peg or two.

It looks quite predictable and, as a result, quite boring. There's a hint of chemistry between Zells and co-star Harry Connick Jr. so that maybe a saving grace. Otherwise I wouldn't bet too heavily on it critic-wise.

New in Town is due out January 30th.
