I watched it last night. It's my first chick flick. I liked it, but my dad will be taunting me for days.

Dolly Parton plays in it as Trudy the hair stylist. Trudy hires a young woman whose husband stole everything valuable from the house and is now a wanted felon. Trudy gives the lady a job. Later, a wedding takes place (the wedding cake is a red velvet armadillo with grey icing so it appears to bleed when they slice a piece). The woman getting married is named Shelby and has type 1 diabetes, the worst kind. She really wants a kid and her husband Jackson does as well, but Shelby's mother tries to convince her no. Why? Shelby could have kidney failure. Shelby can't adopt because she says "a judge will never give a child to me, [...] not to a mother like me." She does end up having a baby boy. She then has kidney failure, and needs a kidney transplant.

Her mother gives up a kidney.

But Shelby's body rejects it (its set in the '70s, where there wasn't preventive meds) and she dies. It is based off a true story.

My fave part, at the end, is when this woman whose older (named Weeza) is at a Easter celebration. Her friend is talking to Shelby's child and tells him a story. "Once upon a time, there was a grave girl named Shelby. And there was a wicked witch called Weeza! [...] and they lived happily ever after, and the wicked witch was destroyed."

Weeza and this other elderly woman were good friends, but Weeza is the funniest of the lot. She goes up to the kid, and says, "Hello, you remember me? It's Weeza!"

Kid slaps here while Weeza's friend laughs in distance.

Priceless.

Rating: 4 stars. A little too much swearing. I rate it PG-13.
