Sweet Home Alabama is a very sweet and touching romantic movie. I loved it. I don't understand why many critics didn't like this film. I think Sweet Home Alabama is a very funny film, the characters are funny, the story is touching. Like in other movies, Reese Witherspoon is excellent in this movie as well, so is Patrick Dempsey.
