Even though I totally knew the ending, I loved it anyway!


Have I mentioned how much I lurve Netflix? The idea of having thousands of movies at the touch of my XBox or Wii controller button is just, well, awesome!

When my mom was in town for my birthday a few weeks ago, we wanted something to veg out to. There wasn’t something good on my DVR, so to Netflix Mom and I went. We both love Renee Zellweger and hadn’t seen this latest movie of hers.

Ok, so even though we knew EXACTLY what was going to happen at the end of this romantic comedy, it was still really, really, cute. Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr are just adorable together.

Basically, Renee is this big fancy dancy consultant from Florida. For her job, she’s sent to snowy small town Minnesota to oversee a manufacturing plant restructuring. She gets treated exactly like you’d think she’s be treated – no one wants someone coming in from out of town to redo everything about the one big business in town and who doesn’t even own a COAT. [Seriously, who moves to the frozen tundra and doesn’t bring anything heavier than a suit jacket?!]

Of course, you know what happens… she falls in love with the head of the union and manages to save the plan when the big bad company wants to shut it down. She also learns to love the back-waters-scrapbooking-dorky townspeople. So heartwarming!

We really enjoyed watching it, even if we could have written the script for them. :)

One more step towards my 101 list.


  1. I've never heard of this movie, but Renee and Harry? Sounds great! I love them both!

  2. It;s on my Netflix list as well. I was unsure about it, but now it sounds like one I need to watch. Probably next week during all my free time. haha

  3. It was definitely adorable and I'm not even a big fan of the actors!
