New in Town looks to capitalize on the quaint rituals of us Northern folks with exaggerated accents and lots of ice fishing. The film looks about as predictable as they get, as plucky city girl slowly warms to the charms of nowhere Minnesota (and Harry Connick Jr.) I can't take the good natured jokes too seriously, because, well, let's face it, the winter culture we have up here is kinda funny. That being said, I saw the trailer for the first time today and it looks to be a dog of a romantic comedy that few will be convinced to see, except us Minnesotans of course.
Before you flock to the film to see familiar places, be forewarned that the film makers did not have the decency to mock us in our own habitat. The film was shot in Winnipeg. That is not very nice.
