Nurse Betty (2000) Hollywood

Interference in someones dream chase may end in disaster.

Comedy | Crime  | Romance | Thriller

"She's chasing a dream... They're chasing her."
"She need to see a doctor."

      A simple, plain, straightforward story that can surprise anybody like it did to me. Frankly to say I thought it was some pure chick comedy and yes it was but little more than that. I can say that where a fun filled 'chick movie' meets the ruthless 'hit man'. The movie was kinda similar to Alfred Hitchcock's last movie 'Family Plot'. The story centers around a Kansas waitress Betty who married to a car salesman. When Betty witness her husband's murder she suffers from a post trauma shock. She forgets everything and becomes a new of her who begins to pursue her favourite soap actor.

      Impressive performance by Renee Zellweger, I totally fell for her character and tell me who can't. For that she also won the Golden globe trophy, well deserved. Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock were others two with a solid supporting roles who comes in darker shades. It was little cleverly written script than I thought, like I said it was kinda Alfred Hitchcock style theme and presentation. In a couple of scenes I came to know the secrets only when they reveal it themselves. Those were the awesome tiny-tiny twists throughout the movie. This was a pure entertainment for those who seek a movie for relaxation. One of the rare product and a tiny bit underrated movie.
