My first impression of this film left me thinking that Renee Zellweger probably took on this project while she was waiting for something better to come along, but on second thought, ?New in Town? is actually not a bad film at all. It is a comedy/drama that could just as well have aired on any number of TV stations, but I rather enjoyed it. The story itself runs along formulaic lines that is, girl comes to new town to reorganize the local factory, girl alienates herself from towns-folk by making questionable decisions regarding the town?
