Sweet Home Alabama Blu-ray Clips Celebrate The Film's Tenth Anniversary
On November 6, one of Reese Witherspoon’s biggest hits, Sweet Home Alabama, is coming to Blu-ray for the first time. The comedy about a young woman who must confront her past to face her future is mostly a charming affair, but the following clips show Witherspoon’s character, Melanie Smooter, with more than a little spitfire. Touchstone sure knows how to pick ‘em.
The first clip, “Melanie and Jake Argue,” sets up Melanie’s less-than-grand return to the small Alabama town where she grew up. We are also introduced to Josh Lucas’ Jake, who is mostly laid back and likeable in the role, and provides what is probably the best line in the segment when he calls Melanie a “hoity toity Yankee bitch.” So, it’s not really a laid back or likeable comment, but if you haven’t seen the flick, you’ll just have to take my word for it.
