In this romantic comedy, America's new sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon, stars as New York fashion designer Melanie Carmichael. Melanie suddenly finds herself engaged to the city's most eligible bachelor, Andrew (Patrick Dempsey), but her past holds many secrets, including Jake (Josh Lucas), the redneck husband she married in high school, who refuses to divorce her.
Bound and determined to end their contentious relationship once and for all, Melanie sneaks back home to Alabama to confront her past. As Melanie discovers that falling in love a second time is even better than the first, she realises that you can take the girl out of the South, but you can never take the South out of the girl.
