Country music singer Charlotte comes back home to Tennessee a week before she's set to get married, hoping to borrow her late mother's wedding dress from her grandmother. But when she runs into her high school sweetheart, Ray, sparks begin to fly. As emotions with Ray get complicated and her record label continues to pressure her to write a new hit song, Charlotte questions if she ever should have left Tennessee in the first place and if she's even marrying the right man.

  • It gets better by 5

    I really was not a fan of the beginning of this movie. In fact, I was ready to write a whole thing about a side character having a much better love story than the protagonist. And although that might still be the case, the story went in a different direction than I guessed, so I have to give the movie some props for that. Something happens and the characters are all more likable in the last 20 minutes.

    Though I still think too much time was dedicated to Babs's wine company.

  • A Surprise Movie by 7

    I rented this for my wife. She's into the romantic genre and I liked the cover intro of the story. As for myself, I've been expecting this showing to be the usual formulaic boy meets girl, girl has trouble deciding, conflict evolves, emotions roil among parties, parties resolve situation---film credits run. Not so. This was a step above the rest. The development of the characters, the swing country music, the good songs and lyrics made this cynic into a believer, But I am not averse to enjoying country music, or the pastoral scenes of a bucolic way of life. Those were to my preferences and very appropriate for the plot. It was the portrayal of the reality within the story and the people in it. It had depth and talent that I never expected from a cast that I'm not familiar with, that went beyond the banal and trite. It was a good evening's viewing.

  • It's not that bad by 4

    It's a typical romance genre movie. Hard times that work out in the end. It's more like something you'd watch on TV when you don't feel like something heavy. The story is not that bad and the acting is passable. Except the main star, Lauren Alaina, can obviously sing, but her talents don't transpose well across to acting.

  • Ouch by 3

    Worst acting i have ever seen. Apparently they were unable to turn off the drink act.

  • So Bad, And Worse... by 1

    Enough with trying to explain, and then re-explain, that people have different expressions, colloquialisms and accents in the South, just in case the audience may not get it. We get it! How about a little respect for the South, and the intelligence of viewers? The scenery is nice, both geographical and human, as long as the volume is kept on mute. This movie is truly an embarrassment. It makes Sweet Home Alabama seem like a masterpiece.
