New in Town

She's an executive on the move. But her career is taking her a little farther than she expected.


New in Town
An up-and-coming young executive accepts an assignment in Minnesota, a far cry from her warm and humid Miami. She has to restructure (as in: close down) a food processing plant. Once there, however, her icy demeanour warms to the locals, if not the weather, and she finds that completing her mission will be more difficult than she thought. This is especially because she finds herself romantically attracted to the local shop steward... in spite of their fireworks-driven relationship.

95 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 10 (Language).

Ulpha Edries quote iconIf love is looking a bit on the glum then this movie will remind you love does win in the end.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe real question is, do you like this sort of rom-com? It's a fair example of its type, not good, but competent.

Kate Carraway quote iconThe experience is more cringe-inducing than lovable.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconNew in Town feels like nothing more than reheated leftovers with a few new garnishes thrown in as an attempt to fool consumers that it's something new that they haven't had before. But they have, and it's not only stale, but also suffers from freezer burn and existing beyond its expiration date.

Tomatometer quote iconCliched and short on charm, New In Town is a pat genre exercise that fails to bring the necessary heat to its Minnesota setting.
