Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Sweet Home Alabama is the latest picture to give you the sense that Hollywood filmmakers simply plucked another old pop-tune title ripe for ripping off, then were shaken by the rude reality of coming up with a script to jerry-build around it. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Nov 14, 2002

Rotten: Despite her relentless vim and winsome facial symmetry, Witherspoon is just too dialed-up to be America's Sweetheart. – Laura Sinagra, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This is a feel-good movie that does just that. – Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: As predictable as a Florida election controversy, as wholly amusing as a cold plate of grits. – John Anderson, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010

One of my Favorites

This is such a great movie. Not only is it well made, but well acted. Reece once again shows us that she deserves to be in the top ranks in the ActorDome. If you are a guy, this is a must see with your wife or girlfriend. If you are a girl, you've probably already seen it.
