Best friends Bell and Belle are tired of just killing time, throwing back margaritas in their trailer park, waiting for something - anything - to happen. Determined to start new lives in the big city of Atlanta, they plot a series of half baked money mak

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie April 21, 2006
By Shawna
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Definitely a buy. I first thought it would be a campy movie that would be a good way to kill two hours with. Wrong... watched it twice in one evening and can't wait to see it with my friend later today.

This movie has so many different nuances and contrasts in it that just watching it the second time makes it worth while. For example, there's a bar fight scene where Belle is sitting leisurely at the bar sipping her beer and scheming while behind her two characters are literally doing a fast paced fist dance scene. Fists up, move twice back then twice forward while partner does the same. They each have a buddy who decides to react differently to the situation. What you think is going to happen in this movie... rarely does.

The more I think about it, the more I appreciate it. I rarely encounter a movie that makes me want to view the script and see where the director added to it but this one does.

The characters are awesome. Justin Chambers is the only one whose work I've seen before. He plays such a different character in this movie as compared to his role as Alex in 'Grey's Anatomy" that it's hard to believe it's even him. His acting is that good. He is a strong, down to earth (literally), character that makes you feel for him. In fact, it would be impossible to not identify with a lot of the characters in the movie.

Sound... whoever did the music in this one knew what they were doing. They knew when to put in the sappy music and when to scratch the album, thereby emphasizing what was going on in that scene and added the voice of the characters instead of usurping it.

Very interesting movie that I highly recommend. I'd love to say more but...

5.0 out of 5 stars Southern Belles March 21, 2006
Format:DVD
Wow. Pleasant surprise is an understatement. I sat down to watch this movie with some friends thinking it would be another B rated made for TV movie, but boy was I wrong. This movie is incredibily entertaining and full of subtle wit. Think a cross between Raising Cain and the Big Lebowski. I found myself disappointed that it ended when it did, as after a few Reebs I was craving more Southern Belles dialogue.

Keep this movie team together, pump out more films, ladies and fellas. This is what the movie industry needs today.

I highly recommend this movie as a return to entertaining with the mind and portrayals of life, rather than mindless special effects. Buy one for your home, one for your office, and one for the glovebox of your IROC.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heapin' Helpin' of Southern Pride, Y'all March 20, 2006
Format:DVD
Despite the "Gone with the Wind" references that crop up periodically throughout "Southern Belles," it is clear from the inception that this is a portrait of the American south altogether different from that depicted in the 1939 Civil War epic.

Think gritty trailer parks instead of sweeping plantations; denim and wife beaters rather than pressed suits and flowing gowns. (Then again, the confederate flag is presented prominently in both pictures; some things never change, after all.) Our heroine Bell is no Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler is a far cry from, well, Rhett Butler.

But that's the beauty of it. Just ask anyone who's ever spent any time in a small town south of the Mason-Dixon line and they'll tell you that "Southern Belles" gets it right: from the "hill-hop" culture to the overzealous law enforcement; from the casseroles to the cars to the constellations. (Sure, the turkey hunting scene may have been less than plausible, but what movie has ever depticted hunting with any degree of accuracy?)

And in the same way that Jerry Seinfeld (or, perhaps more appropriately in the presetnt context, Jeff Foxworthy) is funny because his observations are true, so it is with "Southern Belles." Kevin is a kid we all knew in grade school, with extra blankness in his stare for added effect. And that kid probably grew up to become Hampton, complete with the ever-present cigarettes and misplaced pride in a piece-of-crap car.

The main characters, while far from flawless, keep the over-the-top supporting cast from careening out of control. But they do more than that. Even if Belle and Bell are not perfect dramatic foils, by the end of the picture they at least serve to highlight the differing - yet equally legitimate - perspectives on the world from which they hail.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very underrated movie. May 1, 2013

I love the movie. It's funny without being stupid which is what a lot of folks think is funny. Every actor in it is above average and believable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a smart comedy April 19, 2006
Format:DVD
This is the kind of comedy that becomes an immediate cult classic and lines from it are recited over and over again by its many intelligent fans. I filed my copy right next to Terry Gilliam's 'Brazil' and the Coen brother's 'Raising Arizona'. Seeing it once simply isn't enough.
