New In Town

Last night Dr. Hubby rented this movie. I had heard it had some scrapbooking references and I loved the previews BUT I had also heard it BOMBED at the box office. I was worried...

I loved it though! The scrapbooking references are adorable. The women sitting at a table scrappin' at Scrap Club is so familiar. BTW...how do they work with so very little space? The characters are very likable. My fave has got to be Blanche! I love that she does not know that an executive assistant is a secretary. This movie had me laughing out loud several times!

It is definitely a very cute romantic comedy...I'd leave the men out of it, but if you are watching it with a man there is ice fishing, snow plows, guns, hunting, and a few chauvinistic jokes.

Not my favorite...I could watch it again...would have been good at the theatre.

If you've seen it...
What did you think?

I liked it. Blanche was a hoot. I loved her too. She made me want to find a friend like her. The whole town took me back to the good ole days of being neighborly.

Sometimes it's hard for me to watch Renee, but she was pretty okay in this one.

Thanks for the review. I have not seen it, but now will add it to my list of movies to watch (or try to watch is more like it) for the summer.

I loved it too! I saw it in the theater with the girls, then bought it and made Luvpilot watch it with me a few nights ago. He liked it too. Even though he thought the outcome was predictible, he was laughing during the movie.

I thought it was cute, but not the best possible movie and rather predictable. HCJr was hot in it though.
