B

Details Release Date: Jan 30, 2009; Rated: PG; Length: 96 Minutes; Genre: Romance; With: Harry Connick Jr. and Renee Zellweger

How much do I want to believe in America 2.0 as a place where a Suit might help factory workers survive hard times? Enough to swallow New In Town, a gentle, traditional (like, from the last century) romantic comedy in which Renée Zellweger teeters in high heels as a brittle singleton executrix who relocates to a Fargo-adjacent burg and discovers the virtues of ''square'' Christian values. Bonus discovery: a cute, available man. Harry Connick Jr. plays Mr. Darcy in a pickup truck. B
