Yes, I know.
ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES!
Steel Magnolias (1989)
Revolving around Truvy's Beauty Parlor in a small parish in modern-day Louisiana, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives come together there. As the picture opens, we find Drum Eatenton shooting birds in the trees of his back yard in preparation for his daughter's wedding reception that afternoon. Shortly thereafter, M'Lynn and Shelby (Drum's wife and daughter) depart for Truvy's to get their hair done for the wedding. "Just the sweetest thing," Annelle Depuy Desoto (who may or may not be married because her marriage may not be legal) is introduced to Truvy's customers as her new "glamour technician." While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. As she says, later in the picture, "If you can't find anything good to say about anybody, come sit by me." Filled with humor and heartbreak, these "Steel Magnolias" make us laugh and cry as the realities of their lives in tiny Chiquapin Parish unfolds.

A Few Of The FABULOUS QUOTES
Truvy: Honey, time marches on and eventually you realize it is marchin' across your face.
Truvy: Oh get with it, Clairee. This is the eighties. If you can achieve puberty, you can achieve a past.
Clairee Belcher: [quoting her gay nephew] All gay men have track lightin'. And all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve.
Truvy: When it comes to pain and suffering, she's right up there with Elizabeth Taylor.
Truvy: There's so much static electricity in this room, I pick up everything but boys and money.
Clairee Belcher: Well, you know what they say: if you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me!
Queen Latifah to star in Lifetime's all-African-American 'Steel Magnolias'
I can not wait to see just who is cast as Jackson. He better be one big hangin' man.
