- If the trailer is any indication . . .1 star

save your money. Trailers usually offer snapshots of the best parts of a movie. In this case, it is easy to see the acting is abysmal, the lines just silly, and comedy scenes anything but. Truly looks awful.

This is definitley one of the best movies...for those of you on Rotten Tomatoes saying its completely fake and not good, then shut your little mouth! its a movie so of course its not real and its a chick flick so its suppose to be perdictable and sweet, that what makes it good. It is an amazingly great movie, and i love it. Youll like it even if you are a guy. and if you are a roll tide fan thn youll enjoy catching little Alabama football hints through out the movie. yall DEFINITLEY have to watch it sometime.

Toastandjuice - Love the film but I just want to rent it!4 star

All reviews say I want to buy not rent, I am the opposite. Why can't you give both options?!

English.lady - Excellent film.5 star

A rom com with a good story and interesting and likeable characters. The two leads enjoy a romantic chemistry that works wonderfully and the ending is satisfying. This is a very classy film that I think will stand the test of time.

Yorickbc - Rubbish1 star

Couldn’t watch it to the end. Hollywood trash.

Hobber - Funny and romantic5 star

I love this film. Watched it many times and have been longing for iTunes to sell it rather than rent it. There is a lot of humour in it as well as romance. Love it.

Andy Backhouse - Sooo sweet4 star

Before I say anything I just want to say reese witherspoon was as excellant as always,it was sweet romantic film I would defenitly watch it again.Funny but not too cheesy and romantic but not too much of a chic flic.

Ardeegee - Sweet Home Alabama5 star

Very good film, not just another chick flick. However it's the sort of film you can watch over and over again and as a result I recommend you wait until it is available to purchase and then invest.

RubiaMurphy - Delightful Rom Com4 star

This is a super film. The acting is excellent and the story a good one - save for a couple of improbable moments. It's a lovely way to pass 90 or so minutes (again and again). The shame of it all is that you only have it available to rent. I should like to buy it not rent it. WHY?

ann112 - Very Good!5 star

I just watched it on TV and I was amazed!!! It was such a cute movie, I live in Alabama so it definatly hit home-run. I loved the acting, directing, and the whole plot was actually kind of interesting (although a little predictable!) It was a really entertaining watching Reese get sooo confused and finally realise that what she wanted was there all along! Then as a respond to all negative reviews. I saw a few people were calling the movie "mean- spirited" and "offensive", well here's what I've got to say to ya'll,, darlin' no one is forcing you to watch it. And if it says "romance" as the genre, then chances are IT'S A CHICK FLICK( because guys rarely watch romances, or musicals)! Although this movie isn't a musical I thought I should just add that. So don't be over here saying how, oh noooo this movie is sooo terrible.

edwardcullengirl23 - Sweet Home Alabama = AMAZING MOVIE!!!5 star

Sweet Home Alabama is yet another HIT from Reese Witherspoon. Sure, it's not Legally Blonde but I love this movie. She plays southern NY fashion designer, Melanie Carmichael, who is engaged to the mayor's "McDreamy" son (played by "McDreamy" himself) but has to get a divorce from her southern husband Jake (the amazing and beyond handsome Josh Lucas). But, on the way, she discovers what she left behind in Alabama and maybe giving Jake a second chance isn't so bad. You'll fall in love with this five-star chick flick and want to watch it with all your friends. I recommend it!!!! luv, bellbundyfan

Lexii232 - i <33 this movie! & u will 2!5 star

critterbug85 - Reese Witherspoon at her BEST5 star

I absolutely LOVE this movie. It has a perfect storyline. It has just enough romance and comedy to make this movie perfect. This is one of my all time favorite movies. I will have to say that this movie is predictable so if you don't like predictable movies then this might not be for you BUT please rent it before you decide.

selenagomez12 - Wonderful movie5 star

I think that this is one of the best movie ever made. Resse Witherspoon is such a good actor. This movie is funny and exciting. I want to watch it over and over again.

Erika McAuliffe - One of my favorites.5 star

This movie was great. It is really realastic. Reece is my favorite actress. One of her best movies.

Pdempisfine - nice actors5 star

Patrick Dempsey and Josh Lucas are in this movie...need i say more? The scene with both of them in the truck is nice.

CaliSam1992 - Really Good4 star

I love this movie because I have been to Alabama quite a few times, and the way it portrays it is extremely accurate. This movie is really cute, and I highly recommend it if you like chick flicks with a bit of redneck humor.

kiddo21 - great movie but...4 star

it plays as a widescreen on my 80G ipod and cuts off a lot of the picture.

HorseLover111000 - BEST MOVIE EVER!!!5 star

I am in love with this movie! I could watch it a million times without ever getting tired of its drop dead hilarious sarcasm and dry humor!!! Best movie ive ever seen by far! ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL!!!!!!LOL!


I love this movie Reese dose a really good job in this movie you just have to buy it!!!!!!!

drawlinegirl8 - BEST EVER!5 star

This movie is the best I've ever seen. Reese shows us that she once again is the best actor and that she diserves that part to. The movie is great with romance, laughes, heartbreakes, and truth that it really is the best movie ever. This movie shows passion that Andy Tennant has towards his movies and surely shows him off for if too. So highly recomend this movie to all who have a passion for movies.

flywithyou97 - Reese Witherspoon rocks5 star

she is amazing in so many ways i recomend all of the legally blonds

Ashford Crowder the third. duh brotha - Yep, good movie5 star

This movie shows the love that can exist between two people, even if their lives have told them it wasn't meant to be. How is "The Notebook" not on the itunes movie list? maybe someone could change that....?

wizzybee101 - Amazing!5 star

This movie is Amazing I can watch it over and over and never get bored of it! If your from the south like me you'll know this movie is so true! BUY IT!!!

LaurenCS - SO FUNNY5 star

I hadn't seen this movie in SO long and I just bought it on a whim. I am so glad I did! This movie is SO funny! If you are from the South at all, half the characters in this movie remind you of some one :-) The movie is rarely corny, all the jokes hit, and the love story is trully heart warming.....BUY THIS!

HarperKnits - Predictable and Mean-spirited2 star

I usually like these performers but even they could not save this movie. The plot managed to be both trite and a little offensive. Unpleasant characters and no true story arc or redemption.

southern_sweetheart - The Best5 star

This is the best movie ever. I can not think of anything that went wrong with this movie. If you like Sweet Home Alabama you should also buy/rent The Notebook. The two are very similar.

Jen n Jeff - Southern Love Story5 star

I have been watching this movie for years. I cant help but watch it anytime I find it on. I had to have it as the first movie I put on my iPod. Makes me love being a G.R.I.T.S.(GIRL RAISED IN THE SOUTH)

ZiNi2 - Take the girl out of the South, don't take the South out of the girl4 star

This is a very interesting movie. The beginning is kinda a bore, but if you didn't really like this movie or if you did I would like you 2 see the movie LEGALLY Blonde. Much much much much - keeps saying much until out of breath - better! It's the best movie I've ever seen. In this movie I would say "Sure, you can take the girl out of the south! But you can NEVER take the south out of the girl!" And in the movie LEGALLY Blonde, I would either say "Whoever said orange is the new pink, was seriously disturbed!" or "I like regaurding in everyday life! - Guy whistles - I object!" Lol, both great movies!

MOVIEHUNTER - what a sexy movie!!!!!5 star

getttttt it its a pretty good movie and funny. ITS A MUST C MOVIE!!!

jklm - hilarious!5 star

this movie is so funny! i've probably seen it about 15 times, and it is still hilarious. it never gets old
