Li’l Sis recommends…

Li’l Sis called to tell me that we MUST see this movie… (Ma’am, yes, Ma’am!)

New In Town

The presence of Harry Connick, Jr. is a definite plus. The only rom-com I can remember him in is Hope Floats, which is an all-time favorite. The Zellweger, on the other hand, is worrisome. I never know whether I like her or not. She’s very hit or miss with me. Chicago was a hit and the Bridget Jones movies are classic. And she was exquisite in Down With Love. Ok, so I pretty much like everything she's in, so I’ve just argued with myself, apparently. Perhaps my wishy-washiness can be chalked up to things like this…

I mean… yikes.

But yes, I’ll see this movie, because Li’l Sis is a terrific movie-mate, and I’ve never said no to a good, old-fashioned, fish-out-of-water, straight-out-of-the-textbook, formulaic romantic comedy. Predictability is a like a salve on the messy warts of existence. Two tickets, please.

I just watched Jerry Maguire again a few weeks ago and fell in love with renee all over again.

and mmm harry connick jr. you HAVE to be hot to rock that name, huh? :)

I like the idea that this is a twist on the naive-girl-in-the-big-city thing... a switcheroo. should be interesting.

I adore "Down With Love!" Squeeeee! It's fun to find someone else who both knows and loves the movie.

I have to agree. That outfit isn't kind on Renee, but I do like her 'do.
