Awful, Awful, Awful
31 May 2013 | by (Fairfield, CA) – See all my reviews

This was so bad I could barely get through it. It was boring, poorly acted, and many of the great scenes and funny lines from the original were cut out. I was very disappointed. The original was hilarious and heart-warming. This remake is dull, boring, and a waste of time. Even the more seasoned actresses failed in this remake. Condola Rashad sucked as Shelby. She is a bad actress. Her character always seemed angry and was very sarcastic and unlikeable. I really like Alfre Woodard, but she was unconvincing as Ouiser. I also like Queen Latifah, but she too was unconvincing as M'Lynn. Afemo Omilami was awful as Drum. I could've played that role better. Jill Scott as Truvy was dull. Truvy was supposed to be a funny, witty character. Jill Scott's Truvy was a complete yawn.
