Trivia

Remaking the play and movie "Steel Magnolias" with an all-black cast was the idea of the playwright, Robert Harling. Harling, who is white and who based the character of Shelby on his own sister who died in similar circumstances, nonetheless told producer Craig Zadan that "his dream would be to do it again, but do it with an African-American cast."

Very Bad Remake Of The Original
21 May 2013 | by (Myrtle Beach, SC) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but this movie was bad. I mean really bad. The first movie was lighthearted and uplifting for the most part, making you feel proud of being a Southerner. This one was dark and depressing, and felt more like it was filmed in New York instead of Louisiana. All of the idiosyncrasies and accents that made the original truly Southern were barely existent here.

Alfre Woodard's portrayal of Weezer was more angry than eccentric. Felicia Rashaad's "Clerice" was too reserved. The girl who played the beauty shop assistant was not naive and unrefined enough.

In closing, I love the over the top nature of black comedies in general, and considering the cast that was present, I really expected better. They really did this movie a huge disservice.
