The South: People Should Need a Passport to Come Down Here

June 16, 2014

I will never forget when I saw the movie Sweet Home Alabama for the first time. I was in college and Gail and I did a girls night on a Friday evening to see the movie. It was the first weekend it opened and the theater was packed.

This quote was said early in the movie and it is so true! It is just such a wonderful and unique culture down here. To me that is one of the beauties of the United States… it is so very diverse!

But back to the first time I saw the movie. In that packed theater on a Friday night in the heart of the south. There is a scene towards the end where Melanie breaks off the wedding and punches the potential Yankee mother-in-law. The father of the bride cheers and says something along the lines of “the south rises again.” The ENTIRE theater started clapping and cheering. Seriously. Gail and I were totally taken aback. It was unlike any movie-going experience that I have ever had. Cheering in the middle of the film?! Only in the South 🙂 Gotta love it!
