Sweet Home Alabama

While completely predictable, this is a sweet and entertaining movie. If you put your brain on hold and watch it for what it is, it is quite enjoyable. The story is decent; the acting, also decent. I don't know that I will watch this movie more than once or twice in my life, but it was one I don't regret seeing.

I have just came across an article in the Guardian about the fact that Reese Witherspoon, for the 2nd time in a row, was in the top Forbes list of overpaid actors, once again at the 3rd place. So, it seems that she is not having the greatest success in her career right now but, back in 2002 when she made this romantic-comedy, she was a really hot item. Indeed, a year before, she showed up in ‘Le... read more

It is at that point that Melanie flees for Alabama, hoping to take care of some unfinished business before Andrew and his mother, New York mayor Kate Hennings (Candice Bergan), discover the truth about her. The truth is that Melanie, whose real last name is Smooter, is st ... (more)

“I have just came across an article in the Guardian about the fact that Reese Witherspoon, for the 2nd time in a row, was in the top Forbes list of overpaid actors, once again at the 3rd place. So, it seems that she is not having the greatest success in her career right now but, back in 2002 when she made this romantic-comedy, she was a really hot item. Indeed, a year before, she showed up in ‘Legally Blonde’, a movie with a really lame concept which turned out to be actually decent. It was a huge box-office and she joined the A list, a spot she has never left ever since. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I have to admit it, Witherspoon was really charming and whimsical and she had a good chemistry with Josh Lucas (this guy was supposed to become the next Brad Pitt, what happened” read more

"Day 15 - A character who you can relate to the most - Melanie Smooter (Reese Witherspoon) I can see this being me in a few years. Caught in the middle of two men, from a small town, married at a young age. I'm sure that there are better characters that I can relate to, but for now, this is what I chose. "
