Sweet Home Alabama

Sweet Home Alabama Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

When her upper crust boyfriend proposes, Melanie Carmichael, a rising fashion designer in New York, returns home to the South, where her current husband has refused to sign the divorce papers Melanie sent him seven years ago. Revisiting her Southern roots is far different than Melanie ever expected.

Sweet Home Alabama Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Veteran British cinematographer Andrew Dunn shot Sweet Home Alabama, having shot Ever After: A Cinderella Story for Andy Tennant; he would later shoot Hitch. Although Dunn can do highly stylized photography with the best of them (as he did in Precious), his special skill is in casting enough of a romantic sheen over daily life to sustain the romantic illusion without calling too much attention to the trickery. He's the perfect DP for a romantic comedy of this nature.

Unfortunately, the 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray of Sweet Home Alabama is not one of Disney's better catalog titles. The softness of the image is probably attributable to Dunn's original photography and to the fact that the film was released shortly before digital intermediates began to take over the post-production process. But none of that excuses the frequent and intrusive video noise that comes and goes throughout the film's running time, infecting one shot, vanishing in the next, then reappearing like a persistent cough. Screenshots will not reflect the full extent of this phenomenon, because it appears only in motion. The key point, however, is that it shouldn't be there. With source elements in good shape (which these certainly appear to be) and contemporary scanning technology, noise of this degree should not be an issue.

At least the problem hasn't been arbitrarily hidden by digital filtering. The Blu-ray's image shows a respectable level of detail, even a very good level when the noise isn't in the way. The black levels are stable, and the color palette provides a subtle but distinct contrast between the gentle warmth of the south and the somewhat harsher black, blue and beige of Melanie's adopted New York. If there were compression or other artifacts in the image, they were hidden by the video noise.


Sweet Home Alabama Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original 5.1 soundtrack is presented in DTS-HD MA 5.1, and it's an effective romantic comedy mix that provides a good sense of ambiance for crowded scenes like Melanie's fashion show, the press encounter with the mayor at Lincoln Center and Stella's bar. Otherwise, the use of the rear channels is limited, and you certainly don't play Sweet Home Alabama for its discrete sound effects. Bass extension is tight enough that the guttural barking of Jake's hound resonates deeply, and the initial lightning strike makes a suitable impression. Dialogue is clear and centered. George Fenton's original score plays with the right impact, and the selection of pop tunes, notably the Lynyrd Skynyrd title track (alternately performed by Cornbread and Jewel), fits right in.
