At the movie's thoroughly expected conclusion, a visual joke has a bedraggled cat licking at the icing on a wedding cake, but it's really Melanie who gets to have it and eat it, too. Full Review

If you're a fan of Witherspoon, this movie was produced, shot, edited and distributed entirely for you. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Die-hard fans of Witherspoon and the romantic comedy genre will probably find enough to like in this film to make it worth a trip to the theater. Everyone else would be best served by spending their hard-earned money on something else. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
The whole dumb movie is a baloney cake, but the enticing icing on it is Reese Witherspoon, who manages to have a few moments of spontaneous fun in this half-baked store-bought comedy. Full Review
Jonathan Curiel
San Francisco Chronicle
There's a certain formulaic and familiar quality about Sweet Home Alabama, but it doesn't matter. Full Review
