Favorite Movies About Divorce: Sweet Home Alabama

Okay, okay, I haven't forgotten that this is supposed to be a divorce blog by an Augusta, Georgia divorce attorney containing practical tips and information about divorce for you to discuss with your own divorce lawyer!  But because it's a Monday, I thought it might be more fun to talk today some more about our favorite movies dealing with the topic of divorce!
Today, I would like to nominate the Reese Witherspoon movie Sweet Home Alabama as one of my "Best Pictures" about divorce.  In this 2002 comedy, Ms. Witherspoon's character, Melanie Smoot, returns home to Alabama, from her new life as a New York City socialite, in order to finalize her divorce from the home town boy, played by Josh Lucas.  The movie also features some other fine performances by actors Candice Bergen, Jean Smart, and Mary Kay Place.  
Have you seen this movie about divorce?  What is your opinion about it?  What are some of your other favorite movies about divorce?
