Sweet Home Alabama is one of the feel-good movies that I could watch over and over again! Now, you can celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this Classic Romantic Comedy starring Reese Witherspoon on Blu-ray. Available on November 6th, 2012, Sweet Home Alabama can be purchased online and in stores, retailing for $20.00.


Melanie Carmichael, an up and rising fashion designer in New York, has gotten almost everything she wished for since she was little. She has a great career and the JFK-like fiancée of New York City. But when he proposes to her, she doesn’t forget about her family back down South. More importantly, her husband back there, who refuses to divorce her ever since she sent divorce papers seven years ago. To set matters straight, she decides to go to the south quick and make him sign the papers. When things don’t turn out the way she planned them, she realizes that what she had before in the south was far more perfect than the life she had in New York City.

Sweet Home Alabama is one of my favorite movies, but now it’s even better watching it on Blu-ray. The picture and sound is so much better, not to mention the Special Features! The Alternate ending with introduction was my favorite. I’m glad we can add Sweet Home Alabama on Blu-ray to our movie collection.

    Haha, my girlfriend has the DVD.. she’s watched like 4 times this year. I’m not a huge fan, but I do like the civil war reenactments by the dad or uncle.
