Zellwegger struggles in a frosty role that forces her into one comic indignity after another.

New in Town is old, and worn out. Its joints are creaky, it smells like mothballs, and it just keeps repeating the same old stories over and over again.

Serious competition for Bride Wars and Paul Blart: Mall Cop in the already heated race for worst movie of 2009.

Am I giving too much away? This is the kind of movie that gives itself away.

The movie has little to recommend it and more than a few things to encourage those who pursue quality cinema to stay away.

A flat, formulaic and annoying comedy.

You don't know it, but you've already seen New in Town, mainly because there's not a single thing in it that hasn't been stolen from Northern Exposure, Other People's Money and countless other movies and TV shows.

New in Town is The Pajama Game without the songs, the laughs or the bare-knuckled realism.

The month of January has come to be known as a graveyard for bad movies, but how bad can it get? This one answers the question.

Zellweger exudes none of the warmth and winsome behavior that helped raise the first Bridget Jones film to something solid.

Movie titles don't get any more generic and the same holds for the plot of New in Town.

Danish director Jonas Elmer doesn't quite understand romantic nuance.

This fish-out-of-water romantic comedy offers nothing new and sticks to a comfortingly predictable formula.

must have paid Zellweger a lot of money. Romcom fans should save theirs for repeat outings to He's Just Not That Into You.

Although it wasn't quite the comedy we had hoped for, the idea behind it is pretty cute; we just wished the laughs weren't so awkward and forced.

The timing couldn't have been better for a romantic comedy with a love-among-the-financial-ruins theme to come along. But if you're looking for a welcome mat for New in Town, you won't find it here.
