I Love This Movie!! But I probably understand it much better because I'm Southern. This movie isn't about any political issues nor was it made to raise anyone's consciousness, it is pure entertainment and that is exactly why it is one of my favorites. I don't want to sit down to a movie and be given yet more issues to deal with, I want to sit down an be entertained, to have my mind taken off of my troubles and that is exactly what this movie does. But like I said, I really think one must be a true Southerner to really enjoy this movie. To each his own.
