'New In Town' ...

Gee, I wonder if the exacting would-be executive from sun-and-sea Miami and the widower union rep who's moved to the frozen fields of Minnesota will wind up together?

And I wonder if the screenwriter was consuming a lot of Snack Pack whilst pounding out this script and therein found the inspiration to make tapioca a plot point?

And I wonder why Renee Zellweger squints so much?

Sad, really, given a few years back Zellweger starred in one of the few good romantic comedies in the past thirty years--Down With Love.

I adore "Down With Love." I own "Down With Love." But almost no one saw it, sadly. As romantic comedies go, I think it was too "smart" in its hearkening back to the '60s.

I think that was the problem, Beth. Sad, as I really liked the Sixties comedies (especially with Rock Hudson and Doris Day) a lot better than the ones now!

Tapioca, like Jell-O, is a food group to Minnesotans.

Re. your question about why Renee Zellweger is always squinting, not all of us are blessed with large, bulbous, protruding eyes. Some of us (Richard Gere is another person who comes to mind) just happen to have little squinty eyes. Deal with it.

Calm down, Anon.

My question stems from the fact that Renee is often seen in films with her eyes open quite "normally," yet often, she seems to be squinting. The squinting isn't a permanent condition, apparently, so I wonder why she does it so much.

Her future is still really bright (Renee's, that is, not Anon's), and she doesn't have any shades handy.

Squinting is all she has left.
