I had faint recollections of "Case 39" being watchably OK. So I put it on again whilst keeping an eye on an eBay auction (I lost it). Turns out I was wrong. "Case 39" is actually a steaming heap of trite awfulness that wastes a good turn from an underused Ian McShane. And of course Renee Zellweger is appalling in the lead, because she's appalling in everything. She has to try emotions here and it really is not her thing. How on earth did she ever become a leading actress? Everything about her is monstrous.
