I just got done watching Steel Magnolias. This is seriously one of the best movies EVER!!!! It gets me every time, every single time!! I shed tears no matter what. It made me kind of sad the other day when I said something about this movie to my students and not one of them knew what I was talking about. So to all you mothers out there...force you children (daughters especially) to watch this movie. Don't let the classic die!!!!!!! Not only does my mother look very similar to Sally Field, but every time I watch this movie I think of my own Mom and how she would do anything for all six of her children, much like Shelby's mother!!
I also noticed this time through the movie that Weeza admits she would give a kidney to her dog if he needed one, and while I do not totally identify with the character of Weeza, I totes would give a kidney for either of my dogs:). Kidding...but I would probably think about it!!
Kora this is for you...
"Shelby, open your eyes! Open your eyes! Open, open, open your eyes!"
How many times did we reenact that scene?!?
Amazing movie. Watch it the next time you get the chance. What are some other classic movies that are great? Share your opinion....
