In case you haven't seen it enough already, Steel Magnolias is coming on Lifetime Channel at 8PM Central tonight.


It was a 2012 remake. With all African-American cast. Saw it, thought it was a big disappointment compared to the original, didn't care to see it again when it re-aired later Sunday night and again on Monday.

A lot of the lines fell flat -- not very good delivery -- and quite a few corners were cut from the original. Plus a few scenes were a bit different. If I hadn't been very familiar with the original movie, I would've been lost the entire time watching this one.
