Nurse Betty

Nurse Betty

Nurse Betty is an above average film that has a very dark tone with it’s humor but still sophisticated if you want to think about it. There are a few scenes in the movie, especially the scene with Betty’s husband, Del, that turns very violent, but there are some wonderful lines of dialog that come from it. Of course this is how the movie gets its start with Betty and a traumatic event, that throw her into shock where she believes she is a character in her favorite soap opera. And the quest is on to find her soap opera love, David Ravell, played by Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets).

Renne Zellweger (Best Supporting actress Cold Mountain) gives her standard performance with basically playing a similar role to Bridget Jones. She does have some wonderful scenes late in the film with Greg Kinnear when they encounter each other and she is convinced he is her reality, the surgeon from Loma Vista, the soap’s hospital. Both Greg Kinnear and Morgan Freeman (Best Supporting Actor for Million Dollar Baby) are good in their roles, but the scene stealer throughout this movie is Chris Rock…something I thought I would never thought I would say. He has a very quick tongue and is very witty in his comments and conversations with Morgan Freeman.

Overall, this isn’t a movie that was made for awards and nominations, but a dark comedy that delivers. To me I don’t have to have movies that need to be discussed philosophically to no end, I just want to have fun and be entertained sometimes. Seeing this movie, I was entertained.
