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.

An average movie

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

"Sweet Home Alabama" was a nice pleasant romantic comedy. What made this film I think was the performance of Resse Witherspoon, her character starts off unlikeable, but in the latter half of the film we see a change of heart to her being more sympathetic. Witherspoon played her very convincingly, being her usual likable self, and she is amiably supported by Patrick Dempsey, Candice Bergen and Josh... 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.

“"Sweet Home Alabama" was a nice pleasant romantic comedy. What made this film I think was the performance of Resse Witherspoon, her character starts off unlikeable, but in the latter half of the film we see a change of heart to her being more sympathetic. Witherspoon played her very convincingly, being her usual likable self, and she is amiably supported by Patrick Dempsey, Candice Bergen and Josh Lucas. There is also a nice soundtrack, good direction, beautiful scenery and good cinematography. While essentially a pleasant film, the film is let down by some sluggish pacing and a slow and sometimes predictable story that meanders at the end. Also one or two characters are a little clichéd. In conclusion, this is not perfect by all means but it is worth watching and pleasant. 6/10 Bethany C” read more
