Lucy Hill (Renée Zellweger) does whatever it takes to climb the corporate ladder.  Success means wearing the newest, most expensive fashions and driving similarly lavish automobiles.  When her boss suggests relocating from sunny Miami to gloomy Minnesota she's initially hesitant, though eventually jumps at the opportunity for higher pay and subsequently a fancier lifestyle.

Hill's relocation to Minnesota is expectedly monotonous at first.  Slowly she becomes acquainted with the town's quirky characters however, and the exec sent to 'restructure' a fledgling factory becomes her employees' greatest advocate.  It also doesn't hurt that she's met a cute guy named Ted Mitchell (Harry Connick Jr.), either.

New in Town was a modest commercial success, earning $29 million -- more than triple its $8 million budget.
