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.
Rotten: Despite her relentless vim and winsome facial symmetry, Witherspoon is just too dialed-up to be America's Sweetheart.
Fresh: This is a feel-good movie that does just that.
Rotten: Physical charms are no match for the generic predictability of the story.
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.
