Nurse Betty is a movie about a Kansas waitress named Betty Sizemore (Renee Zellweger), with big dreams of becoming a nurse one day. She becomes delusional after her husband's murder in front of her own eyes, and she thinks she loves the famous soap opera star George McCord (Greg Kinnear). In fact, she even thinks that she is engaged to the man. Acting very delusional, she thinks the soap opera is real and ventures to Los Angeles to find the hospital where George works as a cardiologist. At the same time, her husband's murderers Charlie (Morgan Freeman) and Wesley (Chris Rock) are searching for the drugs that he stole. The drugs happen to be locked up in the back of the car Betty is driving. Is Betty going to make it to Los Angeles? Neil LaBute directs this 2000 comedy starring Renee Zellweger who won a Golden Globe for Best Actress for her performance.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    It is easily the finest American comedy since David O. Russell's "Flirting With Disaster," another road movie that never ran out of poignantly funny surprises.

    Variety Emanuel Levy

    Few actresses can convey the kind of honesty and humanity that Zellweger does here -- it's hard to imagine the film without her dominant, thoroughly credible performance.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    One of those films where you don't know whether to laugh or cringe, and find yourself doing both. It's a challenge: How do we respond to this loaded material?
