My Review...

The 10th Anniversary Edition of Sweet Home Alabama on Blu-ray is a must have! I saw this when it first came out in 2002 and I love it just as much now. There are heart felt touching moments as well as plenty of laughs. Reese Witherspoon does an amazing job as Melanie who wants to marry her New York boyfriend that just proposed to her. There is only one problem, she is still married to a guy in Alabama. When she goes back to her home town to have him sign the divorce papers, her life gets a lot more complicated. I love how this movie starts off with two kids on a beach kissing and the girl says "why would you want to marry me anyway and the boy says so I can kiss you anytime I want to." Then the movie ends the same way but with the guy saying "why would you want to be married to me and she says so I can kiss you any time I want to." That was great. I loved when Melanie punched her almost future mother in-law in the face. It was pretty funny.

We really enjoyed watching the Blu-ray special features as well!
