    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A cute romantic comedy (which isn`t that comic, come to think of it), about a city-girl rediscovering her roots back in Alabama.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs and the picture is sharp.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are used occasionally and give a nice enveloping sound.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary, 9 deleted scenes (including an alternate ending and a brilliantly edited phone scene) and a music video.
    Bottom line - yet another sweet movie from the star of "Legally Blonde".
