Case 39

What can I tell you about Renee Zellweger’s latest release Case 39? Renee plays a social worker who rescues a little girl from a grim assassination at the hands of her own parents. But all is not well with wee Lilith, and our Renee is going to regret inviting her into her home.

Case 39 filmed filmed in studio in Vancouver (with a brief sojourn to Riverview Hospital in Coquitlam) back in 2006 but it’s taken a while to get to our screens. Either the producers were just a bit embarrassed by their opus, or (more likely in m.h.o), they just kind of popped it on the shelf and completely forgot about it. You see it’s all rather silly, but mostly all rather forgettable. Not good, not bad, just forgettable.

On the plus side, it does co-star the lovely Bradley Cooper, who in the intervening years has of course gone all meteoric and super-starry. He’s also Mr. Zellweger for the moment; I do hope they didn’t meet on set, because that really wouldn’t bode well.
