A great date flick and a very charming, well acted movie...

Witherspoon is not immune to the bland and processed feel to this rote romantic comedy.

...a sporadically amusing yet entirely ineffective romantic comedy that ultimately squanders an expectedly charismatic turn from star Reese Witherspoon.

Watching Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama is like looking at a daisy floating in a toilet: She's the best thing in it, but you wonder what she's doing there.

Mediocre is too harsh a word-this film is merely average.

...a well-intentioned but saccharine comedy... In fact, that's its problem. It doesn't do much of anything but meet our lowest expectations.

Any resemblance to reality is strenuously avoided in a piece of fluff made watchable by Reese Witherspoon. The blonde cookie with a sweet heart and the most formidable Texan twang in Tinseltown is too good to be appearing in lazy formula films.

Responsável direto pelo fracasso 'artístico' de Doce Lar, o roteirista C. Jay Cox não consegue sequer aproveitar os pouquíssimos momentos em que escapa da mediocridade.

Diversión asegurada, justo el tipo de cintas que se necesita de vez en cuando...

Would be an unendurable viewing experience for this ultra-provincial New Yorker if 26-year-old Reese Witherspoon were not on hand to inject her pure fantasy character, Melanie Carmichael, with a massive infusion of old-fashioned Hollywood magic.

Very predictable but still entertaining

A romantic comedy, sans much of the comedy, this clunky Reese Witherspoon vehicle glows with the powerful allure of its shiny, irresistible young star but little else.

Starts out great, but runs out of gas near the end.

It's a safe bet that the gutsy Lynyrd Skynyrd, particularly the outspoken and now deceased singer Ronnie Van Zant, would not have approved.

If this is Witherspoon's idea of a good career move, someone get this woman a career counselor, pronto.

Here is a movie that asks us to adore a miserable young woman who wrecks lives, treats people like discarded Biore strips and embodies the absolute worst side of metropolitan arrogance
