On it's first opening weekend, the romantic comedy Sweet Home Alabama snagged the top spot at the box office, while Reese snagged hearts across North America. Now this romantic comedy is hitting your local video store.

What It's About
Sweet Home Alabama is about a girl who grew up in a small, Alabama town but left her roots to find success in New York City. Reese Witherspoon plays Melanie Carmichael, a successful 28 year-old fashion designer who's dating one of the most eligible bachelors in New York - the mayor's son, Andrew Hennings (Patrick Dempsey.) Melanie's got it all, including a dream marriage proposal right in the middle of Tiffany's.

Her engagement sends her back to her hometown to confront her unusual past and tie up a few loose ends with her husband, Jake Perry (played by Josh Lucas.) Yes - husband. Turns out she's still hitched (gosh darnit!) Melanie learns that sometimes you have to take a step back (or head off to New York,) to realize that what you had was a good thing.

DVD Special Features

The DVD is loaded with extra features including eight deleted scenes, a totally different ending that was never used, and the music video for SHeDaisy's hit Mine All Mine of the Sweet Home Alabama soundtrack.

If you're a Reese fan or just a fan of fun, mushy movies, you gotta bag this one! And guys, it's a perfect Valentine gift for your girl.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
