Nurse Betty

Year: 2000
Director: Neil Labute
Cast: Renee Zellweger, Morgan Freeman, Chris Rock, Greg Kinnear, Aaron Eckhardt, Crispin Glover, Allison Janney
A movie that got a lot more attention than it deserved, whether it was relentless marketing or there really was some sort of buzz about the stars or story.

An abused wife (Zellweger) flips out after seeing her husband murdered by thugs. Believing she's engaged to her favourite TV soap star (Kinnear), she goes to LA to find him. For some reason I can't even remember, philosopher hitman Freeman and his son (Rock) are on her trail.

The whole thing ends in a fairly bloody shootout (for what looked like it was supposed to be a straight-laced comedy) and nothing much seems to have been achieved for the characters, story or premise.
