We went and saw New in Town with Harry Connick, Jr. and Renee Zellweger. Well, we didn't go with them, they were in the movie.
I loves me some HC, Jr. I love his voice, insanely mad piano skills, sense of humor, hunkiness....sigh. He is the total package. I like Renee Zellweger as an actress, but there is something not right with her face.
The movie is pretty formulatic: fish out of water comes to town, nobody likes her, she changes, finds love, everybody likes her. I'm not letting any cats out of any bags here. You all knew that's what happens, right? Lots of jokes about how Minnesotans talk funny and are square. Everyone in the theatre seemed to be enjoying it from all the gut busting laughter I heard, which I kind of didn't get. It was cute, but this was Blazing Saddles kind of belly laughs. Maybe I just wasn't feeling well watching Harry and Renee mack on each other.
So, to erase that sight from my mind (and possibly yours), here is a little gift from me to you. My favoritist HC, Jr. song. If you have to watch a commercial first, I apologize. However, it's really short and I couldn't embed the You Tube version, so I had to go with Yahoo.
My girls used to call this "The Bakery Song", because of the "Pass me some of that fried chicken!" line.
