I was a big fan of the original and despite the talented cast of this remake I was skeptical but it was so much better than I expected. I thought it was thoroughly enjoyable. A film needs more than just good acting, more than good direction it needs that intangible chemisty and I'm sad to say that the intangible is lacking in so many of today's films but I am happy that this one had everything it

I love heart-tugging films. What this flick shows,is strength and Hope of a southern people. Around Truvy"s (Parton) salon, many people flock in patronage. We meet Ouiser Boudreaux(MacLaine) ,M'lynn Eaterton(Field), and Clairee Belcher (Dukakis). Eaterton's daughter Shelby (Roberts) gets married, and the town is set for a great party. Ainelle (Hannah) is Truvy's assistant who everyone worries
