My Favorite Small Town Movies

I've been watching Netflix more often than TV lately and I've found myself gravitating towards movies I saw when I was little but never really appreciated. I love the cheesy humor and the lack of curse words and the way not everything is about sex, but even when it is it's so 80s that it's more funny than anything. Most of these are based in the South because I am 100% biased, but I think my favorite part of all of them is the small town feel. I am so proud to be from a small town where everybody knows everybody and every time I get home I feel like I'm a part of something. I know no matter what there are people I can go to when I need help and they'll help me out, no questions asked. I always find it funny when I'm at the bank or just running in to Winn Dixie and one of my grandmother's friends stops me to tell me she reads my "journal thing on the internet" and she wants to know all about those boys in England. It's sweet. 
 These movies make me want to spend time outside drinking sweet tea on my porch and just slow down and enjoy things, and I miss that in all the hustle and bustle of school lately.
{They've also made me dream of having a Southern plantation with a screen porch for afternoon tea and a big yard filled with stately oaks for having Sunday lunch under, but that's neither here nor there.} 
 They're all great, filled with sassy women, adorable guys, and sometimes downright awful accents, but that just makes them even better! To me, these feel like home, much more than any of the other 'Southern' representations like Swamp People or Honey Boo Boo. They bring back the women with class, grace, wit, and charm, and I just love it.
