Product Description

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

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!

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.

As a kid i recall a relative who escorted a couple to see the film Hooper..he was a young kid and he never enjoyed a film so much. I saw the film and shared his sentiments. Burt Reynolds for many years Smoky and the Bandit cannonball run and in better films such as Best Friends(in buffalo) STarting Over(with Candice Bergen who appears here)..appears in the role of the good ol southern boy making good..or a stooges short loco boy makes good..the values of smallness and here in its southern context. Theres a male figure i enjoyed watching, and its too bad burts film career nosedived too soon(Stroker Ace) was it too much of the same characterization, audiences growing tired..the point here is really small southern type characters and films needed to do well in the big cities..new york chicago L.A.,,or they really remained in the small towns where they grew up, the fantasy world of the character Reese Witherspoon plays..and plays in so many varied ways throughout a complete character who whole brain activated..looking for a similar lover..by the way we can also recall Dolly Parton whoose films i enjoyed around Burts heydey..like Best Littl..this film also explores bigness seen inthe guise of New York and a sensitive southern person leaving the environs of the big city..and there are a few scenes shot here..to the small towwn where most of the scenes are shot..many who grew up watching small town america..in our living room at home this was america and they were popular..during the cold war..so here is an interesting romantic comedy. We see few males who appear in this kind of film nowadays on a consistent basis..here the petite actress gets the better of her machismo counterparts in a few rowdy scenes..a small character utilizing all within her to deal with large burly characters..Read more ›

Sweet Home Alabama, directed by Andy Tennant, is a typical Hollywood movie for the fact that the lead actress is a blond gorgeous skinny female. Reese Witherspoon could be equated to the image of Barbie. Though there are also some nice aspects of this movie.
This movie helps to objectify women causing the young women who watch Sweet Home Alabama to further try to figure out what is wrong with them. Melanie is always shown as dressed up and heaven forbid shown without make up. She makes herself into something that she feels other people want to see, especially the eyes of her hometown hunk and her city beau. This helps promote the idea that women should be all made up because she is not sure who is going to see her and that is how men want to see.
This film does however confront the idea of the southern stereotype. This incorporates the fact that people view southerners as being slow, staying in their hometown and not amounting to much. When a person talks with a southern accent, people tend to see that person as that typecast. Though Reese's character makes the viewers aware that the stereotype is not true. Melanie depicts a woman who broke out of her hometown and goes to New York. She becomes a famous fashion designer. Though while this all is happening she tries to lose her accent as best she can as a result I feel that forces people to respect her a bit more. Though in the end when she returns back home, she still does not fit the southern stereotype.
Sweet Home Alabama helps to further the stereotype of the blond Barbie who dresses up as she feels people want to see her. Though it does criticize the stereotype of a southerner.

Sweet Home Alabama starring Reese Witherspoon as Melanie Carmichael and Josh Lucas as Jake Perry was the romantic comedy of 2002. Andy Tennet did a great job directing this film, adding plenty of cold hearted scenes for all of the characters and the follow up scenes to make you love them for it. The film is about that first love. The first love is a person's greatest love and this movie proves that. As we all grow up and sometimes apart, we yearn for the good old days when what we thought was terrible is what we wind up searching for our whole lives.
Melanie and Jake met in a small simple town in Alabama when they were ten years old. They had there first kiss with each other and every other experience for that matter. When the two were a couple in high school, Melanie became pregnant. As most small town people do, they got married. Melanie and Jake wound up losing the baby to unforeseen circumstances, as Melanie would go onto dealing with the event one way, Jake would go the other. Unable to deal with all of her emotions Melanie ran. She changed her last name, moved to New York, and became a fashion designer. She was determined to leave that life behind and start a brand new one. After several years passed Melanie became very successful and would find another great love, Andrew. Andrew unexpectedly pops the question to Melanie, she reluctantly accepts. She is now having to face her past in order to get officially divorced and move on.
Melanie flows back into the small hick town of Alabama, her feelings are mixed as she is driving through town, memories are flooding. The onset of Jake and Melanie meeting is rough, the two fight and Melanie goes to jail. This all puts Melanie back into her old life.
