Melanie Carmichael, an up and rising fashion designer in New York, has gotten almost everything she wished for since she was little. She has a great career and the JFK-like fiancée of New York City. But when he proposes to her, she doesn't forget about her family back down South. More importantly, her husband back there, who refuses to divorce her ever since she sent divorce papers seven years ago. To set matters straight, she decides to go to the south quick and make him sign the papers. When things don't turn out the way she planned them, she realizes that what she had before in the south was far more perfect than the life she had in New York City.Written by
This was the first of two movies in which Reese Witherspoon and Mary Lynn Rajskub appeared. The second was Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003). In both movies, the women are in the same circle of friends or co-workers, who become better friends as each movie progresses. See more »
Melanie would not have been able to marry Andrew even if she signed the document before the wedding. The document would have to be sent to the judge handling the case, with a least one party or two showing up to answer questions. Once the judge signs off, there is normally a cooling off period (could be up to two months depending on where they filed) before it becomes official. So if she went through with the wedding she would commit the crime of bigamy. See more »
The only reason I ain't signing is cause you've turned into some hoity-toity Yankee bitch, and I'd like nothing better right now than to piss you off.

During the end credits some photos are shown with the cast. In a sequence of them Melanie's parents are "scared" by a punk with a pierced tongue, Mel's co-worker from the beginning of the movie, who comments on her accent when she dreams. See more »
I was surprised to find the rating when I first checked it out, but I suppose it's a matter of personal experience and the taste that goes with it. I like to be reminded of my own personal experience (which is similar) and compare it to what the main character goes through in the movie. I suppose you'll like it if it means something to you, so if you've got issues with your past (relationships, particularly) and you like happy endings, give this film a shot. There's a bit of stereotyping in the film though, but they're presented humorously, so I didn't really mind. Besides, they aren't very damaging stereotypes (at least in my view), nor very annoying ones.
