What is it about the movie Steel Magnolias? To me, the movie encompasses everything you can encoutner in life. It opens with a wedding, it portrays small town friendly spirits (especially at the local gossip spot at Truvy's salon), mothers and daughters, birth of life, complicated lifestyle due to a common condition of diabetes, death, moving on after a death, and overall friendships that help us all through the good and the bad. This movie was well made and reason being is it based on the writer's experiences with his sister who was a diabetic. For more information on the background of this movie and the writer Robert Harling here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steel_Magnolias I know every time this movie comes on I have to watch it. How about you? Are you a repeat viewer of this movie and what makes it so special to an aduience?

It's one of those movies that makes good to your heart, I think. From time to time,when it's on tv, I usually watch it. And the cast is simply terrific! It makes me discover something different about myself everytime I watch it, cos it' a movie to watch in every stage of a woman's life.

Repeat Repeat repeat.... LMAO and did I say repeat watcher yet? Taface, I just think the movie is amazing. The casting could not have been better, the southern lifestyle and values are represented so well, and the dialog rocks! LMAO But I think you already know how much I love the movie. I got to see the play in Nashville a few years ago, I was a bit disappointed but I went in thinking about the movie and the play paled a bit in comparison. Thats my fault not the actors on stage as they did a wonderful job of the play in and of itself.

It was on tv yesterday so I had to talk about it....I absolutely love it too. I would like to see the play, I had no idea there was one. So who knows maybe one day I'll see it. And I agree seeing something live is not like the movie....kinda like reading a book and then watching the movie....it leaves sooo much out.
