Editorial Reviews

In this contemporary version of the beloved stage play and classic film, Steel Magnolias chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana. Supporting each other through triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s Beauty Spot to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands andchildren — all the important issues that truly unite and celebrate women. Funny, wise and richly human, this immensely moving film features a brilliant all-star cast, including Queen Latifah (Chicago), Phylicia Rashad (TV’s “The Cosby Show”), Adepero Oduye (Pariah), Condola Rashad (TV’s “Smash”), Jill Scott (TV’s “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency”) and Alfre Woodard (TV’s “True Blood”).

While I love this movie and really like Queen Latifah & Phylicia Rashad, I just think this movie just did not come together.

I had almost no desire to write commentary about the Lifetime Original movie "Steel Magnolias." I'm no big fan of the original, although I understand its enduring popularity. And I'm no big fan of this interpretation, although it's a perfectly respectable adaptation. The thing that pushed me into a review was a detracting statement in one of the other blurbs that proclaimed "this attempt is about as bad as a white version of The Color Purple would be." There's a lot that I could say about such a comment for any variety of reasons, but I'll let you judge it on its own merits. First of all, though, let me just state that "Steel Magnolias" started life as a play. Plays are frequently reinterpreted through the years (oftentimes successfully, sometimes not) and restaged. Playwright Robert Harling (who also wrote the 1989 screenplay for the film) was the first to have the idea of adapting his work into a piece for African American women. It's a perfectly legitimate, if not entirely necessary, choice. As I said, I wasn't clamoring for a new "Steel Magnolias" but this production has some good actresses, has its heart in the right place, and is head and tails above most of Lifetime's Original fare.

The original film "Steel Magnolias" is undeniably beloved by many. To be sure, it's emotionally manipulative (that's the nature of the piece and why I don't love it) but it succeeds with an A-list cast, over-the-top Southern charm, and tart quotable dialogue. To think that with the original team of ladies (Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, Darryl Hannah, and Shirely Maclaine), it was Julia Roberts who was a relative unknown at the time. Roberts' Shelby was a bit too much of a saint for my taste, but she picked up a nod for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars.

I watch the original Steel Magnolias every year at Easter time. The original is much more holiday themed and structured than this remake. So I have seen the original maybe 20 times. It is unabashedly corny. The actors are not afraid to go over the top with some frankly schticky lines. I love that movie but do not think it is in any way a great movie. But this review is about the remake.

It seems like the makers of this film identified some of the same weaknesses in the original as I did. In particular, the remake fleshes out some of the male characters and gives them more of a voice. Of course Steel Magnolias is the quintessential chick flick, but I don't think it is fair to cast a bunch of men and give them very little to do but make the occasional crude remark. The men in the new version, particularly Jackson and Drum, are (at least sometimes) smart, caring, compassionate men who are not afraid to show their love for the women in their lives. They have real conversations. They help their women. It was an interesting choice to essentially remove Spud from the remake - his character was the most appealing male in the original.

I also like the treatment of some of the campier dialogue from the original. It is toned down or removed entirely. Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis are actresses who attack a bad joke with gusto. Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard approach their characters organically. I was especially interested to see how Queen Latifah would handle M'Lynn's "aria" from the cemetery scene. I found it to be very pleasing and quite possibly an improvement on the original. Setting this speech in the beauty shop was smart.

Ms Mac

I really enjoyed the twists on the original story line, having the story from another aspect of culture.

I like this version as well as the first one. It was a tear jerker also and it held my attention.

It was good but not as good as the original version with white actors. I always enjoy watching Queen Latifah. She's a talented woman as a performer and an actress.

Movie was great. Acting not so much. Sometimes I felt like they were reading cue cards to get them through a scene. Probably due to low budget.
