It's a fish out of water story where the fish falls in love with the town and Harry Connick Jr. It was very cute.

This movie fell flat for me. Had some funny moments, but not enough to keep me interested the whole movie through. Although I did enjoy the acting of Harry Connick Jr. and J.K. Simmons. I thought they were very funny. I don't care for Renee Zellweger. I haven't liked anything from her since Jerry Mcguire. But, if you like bad romantic comedies then this is your kind of movie. But I would watch this just for some of the funny parts it does have, and for some of the acting.
