Product Description

This delightfully entertaining romantic comedy stars Reese Witherspoon (LEGALLY BLONDE) as sophisticated Melanie Carmichael, a rising New York clothing designer who suddenly finds herself engaged to the city's most eligible bachelor. But this is no fairy tale romance for Melanie. She has skeletons in her fashion-filled closet that include Jake -- the backwoods husband she married in high school who refuses to divorce her. Determined to end their marriage and sever all ties with her past once and for all, Melanie returns to Alabama. But home starts to tug at her heartstrings, and what she thought she wanted may not be what she wants at all.


La star américaine montante Reese Witherspoon avait déjà sauvé du désastre la comédie Legally Blonde. Elle récidive en faisant de Sweet Home Alabama, réalisé par Andy Tennant, un film romantique plus que respectable.

Mélanie Carmichael a tout ce dont elle peut rêver. Conceptrice de mode remarquée, ravissante, elle est sur le point d’épouser le célibataire le plus en vue de New York : le fils de la Maire (interprétée par une Candice Bergen délectable). Mais avant de vivre pleinement son conte de fées, elle devra retourner dans sa ville natale de l’Alabama pour divorcer de son premier mari, Jake.

Il est vrai que, dans ce Sweet Home Alabama irrémédiablement sentimental, l’amour finit par triompher des fossés culturels et sociaux de façon un peu simple et prévisible, et que la bande sonore est parfois agaçante. En revanche, l’exagération du décalage entre le monde huppé et branché de New York et l’univers rustre de l’Alabama donne lieu à des situations assez drôles et dynamiques. Si l’ensemble manque d’un certain cynisme qui le rendrait plus croustillant, il est cependant facile de se laisser porter par la fraîcheur et la personnalité de Reese Witherspoon. La jeune actrice fait de son personnage plus qu’une midinette écervelée et ajoute grandement au charme de cette comédie au final plutôt honorable. --Helen Faradji

Yes, this is a chick flick, and an excellent one at that. Reese Witherspoon plays the New York socialite returning to her southern roots. This is a story of finding who you are, while remembering where you come from. The film is predictable at times, but still heartwarmingly adorable. Though Reese is clearly the star, the entire cast makes the movie worth watching. I love this film, and it's one of the few that I can watch over and over again.

Again, my disclaimer: I am not the best writer here, so bear with me!
I saw this movie at the theatre when it came out and found myself watching it over and over again on cable. In fact, I watched it 4 time last week on STARZ.
The movie has a simple plot: Melanie is from the country and is now an up and coming fashion designer. She wants to marry NYC's most eligible bachelor, Andrew, the son of the mayor. However, she is still married to a high school sweetheart, Jake. She has to go back to her hometown to get her divorce, but finds that she still has feelings for Jake.
I think the purpose of the movie is to give the viewers enjoyment for an hour and a half. We aren't saving the world, but we sure feel good which watching this movie. I love Patrick Dempsey and it is great to see him looking so sophisticated and suave. Josh Lucas isn't really a newcomer (he was in A Beautiful Mind) but he is able to star in this one (think Matthew McConaghey meets Paul Newman).
And of course, Reese Witherspoon does a great job as the country girl/hot shot city girl!

"Sweet Home Alabama" is a romantic comedy, with the emphasis on the romance. A beautiful, young Manhattan clothes designer (Witherspoon) becomes engaged to the son of the mayor (the gorgeous Patrick Dempsey). One hitch: unbeknownst to her fiance, she is still married to her high school sweetheart (the also gorgeous Josh Lucas) in Alabama. So our heroine must travel to the South, and to her forgotten past, to get her divorce. Of course, her trip back home does not turn out the way she envisioned and she ends up having to stay there longer than expected.
When you see the movie the first time, many of the scenes are very funny. When you see it again, you still enjoy it (if you're a fan of this genre), but more for the romance and the beautiful settings (there is a scene in Tiffany's that is amazing) than the humor. However, it is still well worth the trip to Alabama again and again. Witherspoon packs so much charm and grace in her role.
The DVD is actually a great buy for movie fans. The director takes you through an entire storyline that was cut (Witherspoon's assistant having a crush on Dempsey's character) and explains why. He also shows you an alternate ending that was shot and cut. His commentary over the film is also interesting, particularly as this was one of the first films shot in NY after September 11th. Plus, he tells you about various choices he made-for example, both guys were good guys, making the heroine's decision harder.
I would recommend "Sweet Home Alabama" to fans of the romantic comedy genre or Southern flavored movies. I would caution those who don't like romantic comedy-this movie most likely won't change your mind. However, for all students of film, the dvd is interesting for the insights into the process of making this movie.

The delightful Reese Witherspoon carries "Sweet Home Alabama" on her capable shoulders. The director of the film, Andy Tennant, makes the wise decision to put his leading lady in nearly every scene. Witherspoon plays New Yorker Melanie Carmichael, a girl with a past. She is a rising star as a fashion designer and she is engaged to the gorgeous Andrew Hennings, the mayor's son.
The problem is that Melanie hails from from Pigeon Creek, Alabama, a town that has not changed much in years, and her past is not pretty. Since she is ashamed of her roots, Melanie has invented a more palatable story about her upbringing, pretending that she grew up as an upper class young lady in a mansion. Will she be able to keep her secrets hidden long enough to marry Andrew? Or will the easygoing charm of Pigeon Creek lure her away from the excitement and challenges of life in New York City?
If you do not know the answers to these questions, then you are not paying attention. The entire plot of this movie is telegraphed after the first fifteen minutes. Since we know where the movie is headed, what makes it watchable? The answer is the cast. Witherspoon is cute, charming and spunky. Both Josh Lucas and Patrick Dempsey are adorable as the two men who love Melanie. Good supporting work is provided by Candice Bergen who is typecast as the overbearing and snooty mayor and Fred Ward and Mary Kay Place as Melanie's loving but confused parents.
If you want a movie with surprises, twists and turns, this is not the film for you. If you want to kick back and watch an old fashioned, easy-to-take romantic comedy with a perfectly cast leading lady, you could do worse than "Sweet Home Alabama."

Rich son of big-city mayor proposes to fashion-designer girlfriend, despite his mother's misgivings about her. The newly betrothed fiancee realizes she has some unfinished business, though, in the form of the redneck hillbilly backwoods husband she left seven years prior.
Melanie Carmichael (Reese Witherspoon) is riding high. Her recent fashion show went off perfectly, and the man of her dreams (Patrick Dempsey) has asked her to marry him. One problem - she needs to get her husband Jake (Josh Lucas) to sign the divorce papers. So she hightails it down to Alabamy, anxious to get the papers signed so she can get on with her life.
Ah, but not so fast. Jake's not letting her off the hook that easily. Nope, first he calls the cops on her, since she appropriates his spare key and enters his (their) house. When the sheriff discovers they're still married, though, he holds up his hands and calls it a domestic dispute. Jake won't sign the papers, he says, because she's turned into a a high-class, highfalutin, effete snob. Ok, those are my words, not Jakes, but you get the picture. Our little girl has some growing up to do!
Much of the plot has to do with culture clash - Melanie walking down Main Street gabbing on a cell phone, Melanie in a honkytonk bar shootin' pool while women with babies linger nearby. This is all that Melanie left when she escaped from her tiny hometown seven years ago to make it on her own, and naturally at first she can do nothing more than turn up her nose at everything in the hamlet.
Ah, but of course she's due for her comeuppance, and that's where Jake and the rest of the town come in. Someone must be Taught a Lesson, else it wouldn't be much of a movie. Jake refuses to sign the papers so Melanie can be Taught a Lesson.
