Terrible injustice to a wonderful classic.
27 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I loved the original Steel Magnolias movie and really like Queen Latifah & Phylicia Rashad, I just think this movie just did not come together. The lines seemed a little robotic and about half way through I felt I was forcing myself to continue sitting through it. The dynamics of the cast in the original movie was just not here in this remake. The original movie left you with a warm, nostalgic feeling. This movie left you with a feeling you were glad it was over. I don't understand why it was necessary to remake this movie with an all black cast. It didn't add anything to the movie and sadly the actresses and actors chosen here did not convey the essence of the characters they were supposed to portray. Don't waste your time with this one.
