Nurse Betty

This was my fave of the bunch [Note–this review was originally one of a lump of rental reviews–c]. This story of a woman who confuses reality with a soap-opera is completely original and marvelously done. Rene Zellweger has never disappointed me, and she’s great as Betty Sizemore, who travels cross-country to find her “ex-fiance”, a fictional character. Just to make it all even better, Greg Kinnear plays that character (have I mentioned lately that I love Kinnear?), and Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock play a team of killers chasing her in her travels. Perfect pacing moves everything along without needless hand-wringing. The dialog is perfection–John C. Richards uses language to express his characters effortlessly. Don’t miss this one.
