Why I ❤️ Steel Magnolias

The women. The hair. The one liners. The terrible accents (I'm looking at you Julia Roberts). Pure gold!
  1. "If you can't say anything nice about anybody come sit by me"
  2. Sally Field/M'Lynn
    There's something about this woman I love. She's understated and brilliant in every role.
  3. "What's wrong with you these days? You got a reindeer up your butt?"
  4. Shirley MacLaine/Ouiser
    I dare you to name a better female movie character. I want to be her friend just so she can rip me a new one every day.
  5. "You are too twisted for color TV"
  6. Dolly Parton/Truvy
    She's basically playing herself and I couldn't ask for more.
  7. "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion"
  8. The funeral scene...
    Now that I think about it, this is my favorite scene from any movie.
  9. First, Sally's monologue...
    Grab a box a tissue and prepare for an emotional roller coaster.
  10. Then the comic relief
    Clairee and Ouiser should have gotten their own sequel.
  11. "Eat shit and die"
