"Sometimes What You're Looking For Is Right Where You Left It."

Sweet Home Alabama is about a woman living in New York who has to travel home to Alabama to get a divorce from her husband. Her boyfriend in New York has asked her to marry him, and she can't until her husband signs the divorce papers, which she's afraid he won't do. When Melanie returns home after all these years, she quickly falls back into her old small-town life. Her husband, Jake, doesn't want to sign the divorce papers, just like she thought. Finally after one drunken night and some rude things she says, he agrees to the divorce and signs the papers, and tells her she can be on her way back to New York and her fancy lifestyle.

Before Melanie can return however, her boyfriend Andrew's mother sends someone to spy on her, and find out if she's been hiding anything. Melanie has to stay and pretend to be the Melanie Charmichael she told them she was, although she isn't. Her real name is Melanie Smooter, and she's not from the huge Charmicael mansion like she said, but a trailer that she lived in with her typical southern parents. They also don't know that she isn't divorced yet; they didn't know she was married at all.

Once Andrew finds out that she's been hiding something, he comes to Alabama to find out the truth straight from her. She admits to everything, and he still says that he loves her and wants to marry her. He even offers to have the ceremony right there in Alabama, instead of having a huge wedding like they planned in New York. The day of the wedding, Melanie is told that her husband Jake had signed the divorce papers, but she had not. Now she has to make a decision, go back to the man she fell in love with so many years ago, or marry the man who's part of her New York lifestyle.
