New on DVD, New in Town, The Closer

What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue. In addition to my selections below, you can also add Jessica Biel's Powder Blue to your queue, along with the first season of Designing Women.

New in Town
Renée Zellweger stars in this quirky romantic comedy as Lucy Hill, a tough Miami executive who is sent to take over a processing plant located in the frozen tundra of New Ulm, MN. Lucy is supposed to lay off a bunch of employees, but the longer she's in town the more she sees how devastating her actions would be to the people of New Ulm who have been so gosh darn nice to her. The plight of the townfolk is given voice through the local hottie union rep, Ted (Harry Connick Jr.), who has lots of initial contempt for the new lady in town and sees Lucy as a corporate stooge. Until, of course . . . he doesn't.

This isn't the best thing you'll ever see but it's fun enough for a little movie romance on the couch. Special features include featurettes titled "The Folk Art of Scrap Booking" and "Pudding's Delicious Role," along with deleted scenes and audio commentary with cast and crew.


One more up next so


The Closer: Season Four
I haven't watched The Closer in a little while so I'll definitely be adding this to my queue. There are lots of fans of this show out there so I'll leave the season's description to some folks who know better than I (Netflix): "L.A.'s top high-priority homicide detective, Brenda Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick), returns to tackle more intriguing cases, such as the reappearance of a wanted psychopath, while trying to maintain her relationship with her fiancé, Fritz (Jon Tenney). This exciting and powerful fourth season blazes onto the screen as a murdered body is discovered in fire-ravaged Griffith Park."

Special features include unaired scenes, observational tips from an FBI interrogator, a gag reel and a featurette titled, "A Day in the Life of a Homicide Detective: Series star Corey Reynolds rides along with retired LAPD detective Mike Berchem."

I went to see NEW IN TOWN at the $1 was worth every penny...but not a penny more. Connick makes it and saves it. The supporting cast was funny and quirky...but Renee just does not appeal to me...never has even in her Jerry Macguire days.
