Did You Know?

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."See more »

Worst remake I have ever seen, 14 September 2013
Author: rollanrenee from alabama

What an absolute ATROCITY to the remake. I love lifetime movies but what the hell was that? Totally disgusting. Lifetime please stop making remakes of classic movies. I have to write 10 lines. So what else can I say. It sucked. Very poorly acted. Very, very disappointing when I found out they remade the movie. I was excited to watch it but 5 minutes into the movie I wanted to just poke my eyes out. Like I said what an atrocity to the remake. They should be ashamed. Worst acting I have ever seen. LEAVE REMAKES ALONE. LEAVE CLASSICS ALONE. And leave acting to people who can actually act. Very awful. Sucked. Worst I have seen.
