Now Melanie returns to her hometown to tell her parents the news and convince Jake to grant her a divorce. However, the more time she spends with her old flame, the more she feels sparks flying between them again, while she also learns her Eastern affectations don't fly with everyone back home.

Melanie Carmichael, a rising New York clothing designer instantaneously find herself engaged to the richest man in the city, Andrew Hennings, the mayor’s son. Even though the mayor is against their marriage Melanie still believes that Andrew is the one.There is only one problem, before she does this she must cut ties with her husband, Jake, who she married in high school back in Alabama. Melanie then sets off to Alabama with determination to end the marriage and connections with her past for good. Nothing could get Jake to sign the divorce papers not even “accidentally” spending all of his money. By staying at home it puts a great deal on her heart and she realizes that what she thought she wanted may not be what she wanted at all.

Very likeable movie and great chemistry between main carachters. Light and entertaining.

Cute, but formulaic pemise with some truly bad acting. Probably a decent movie if you're drunk.

Great cast--Dempsy, Witherspoon, Bergen and Lucas, etc.,and it's a fun movie. I really liked that both men courting her were both great guys--some movies try to make one the bad guy. Great art, no, but it's a fun movie.

I don't think she should have married either of them. Zero chemistry. The deepest emotion seems to be for the hound dog.

When they play the theme song at the dance, it just makes you wanna get out of your seat!
