Romantic comedies on DVD are often cash cows for studios, and with the all the enjoyable extras milked into Touchstone Home Entertainment's Sweet Home Alabama, this is one disc sure to rise to the top. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Patrick Dempsey, and Candice Bergen, Sweet Home Alabama is a charming film about a self-made New York designer who must rendezvous with her Southern roots before her new life can flourish. The movie, presented in anamorphic video, is shown in 2.35:1 widescreen with crisp colors and clear projection. The Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound is decent, especially during the conversations and Civil War "battle" scenes. Not much in terms of groundbreaking surround sound, but this is a romantic comedy, not an apocalyptic war adventure. A French language track is also available. In terms of extras, Touchstone included those viewer-friendly options that many fans of this genre will enjoy. There's a SHeDAISY music video and 12 chapter selections. The director's screen-specific audio commentary is worth a watch, especially since Andy Tennant uses this platform to really discuss his passion for this film as well as what funny things happened during the shoot. The anecdotes alone are worth listening to. But by far, the best extra on the disc is "Off the Cutting Room Floor," a collection of eight deleted scenes with an introduction by Tennant. To top that off is the always-popular alternate ending feature, with commentary.

Sweet Home Alabama is such a funny, cute, and enjoyable movie to watch over and over again. Reese Witherspoon is awesome in this movie. If you haven't already seen this movie, I recommend seeing it.
I loved the movie, It was one of those funny love movies. Even my friend who won't watched Love Stories watched it and liked it!
This movie is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I like that fact that she leaves her old life only to eventually come back to it. Even when she worked so hard to leave it behind her.
She does it again! Reese Witherspoon is wonderful in this movie.This movie has it all -humor, laughter,and Romance.For those who don't know ,the movie is about Melanie(WItherspoon) who is a fashion clothes desinger in New York City. After accepting a proposal she has to return home to Alabama to get a divorce from the husband she left behind. But she realizes that he is her true love. I recommed this movie is for anyone young or old. I'm sure that you won't be disspointed. After i saw this movie i loved it! 5 stars for a wonderful movie!
I loved this movie I found myself smiling throughout the whole thing.
Reese Witherspoon just comes to deliver fun in Sweet Home Alabama.You'll absouluty love it.
This is a fabulous film! My husband wouldn't go see it because he thought they would 'dis' Alabama, and he's an Alabama boy. Not true! Very balanced and believable. Not a 'chic flick' - I absolutely loved it!
Reese is very good in this romantic movie. A girl who goes to the big city,returns to her home town after excepting a proposal and to ask for a divorce from the husband she left behind.finds out he is her true love. for someone who likes these type movies you will love it as I did.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS MOVIE. REESE WITHERSPOON MAKES YOU LAUGH AND CRY ALL AT ONCE. CANDICE BERGEN WAS PERFECT FOR HER ROLE. IT'S THE PERFECT DATE MOVIE FOR YOUNG AND OLD.
i like movies that i can enjoy for two hours or more.
Great chick movie. Can watch it repeatedly.
Wity and fun this movie is great entertainment. Reese Witherspoon is absolutely charming in it and the chemistry between all the characters is amazing.
The movie is awesome,totally awesome=) Not just Reese was great, but so was Josh Lucas. Critics say that he hasn't had his big role yet, but I think, that the part in ''Sweet Home...'' is incredible! Plus he has really blue eyes! I liked the movie a lot, Eathan Embry was cute too. The plot is touching and has a lot to tell about life and love...There couldn't have been the better cast for the movie about the South that the one chosen---Reese, Lucas, Dempsey, Ward, Bergen, Embry and others... Woohoo! Let the South rule!!...
This was such a great movie. I just happened to come across it because I was watching television and it came on after the Break-up and I just loved it.
This is a great romantic comedy. Reese Witherspoon as Melanie is great, she and Josh Lucas have a wonderful chemistry together, and he is gorgeous. No one else in Hollywood could have pulled off this role.
Sweet Home Alabama is a cute and entertaining romantic comedy and I enjoyed watching it and even bought the DVD. The acting was very good, especially by Reese Witherspoon, Josh Lucas and Patrick Dempsey, and Fred Ward and Mary Kay Place were also very good as the parents of Reese Witherspoon's character. My only complaint with the movie is that Reese's character Melanie wasn't always very likeable and in some scenes was just down out nasty and cruel but all in all I still like this movie and at least Melanie learned to become a nicer person!
This movie will make you laugh until you cry and it will also make you cry. Words can hardly describe how fantastic this movie is! Reese Witherspoon, Josh Lucas, and Patrick Dempsey were just phenomenal. All of the characters were so unique and brilliant, and the overall story is just perfection in a romantic comedy!
