Fried Green Tomatoes Review

I am so excited for the opportunity to partner with Mommy Bear Media. I love to watch movies from every genre and was happy to write a review here on Team Ibrahim. A match made in Hollywood!  

I may be one of the very few people who, until yesterday, had never watched this movie. It's always been on my "watch list" but, for some reason or another, I never had. Some might say that I spent too much time in the early nineties watching the same movies over and over and rarely branched out. My husband is often shocked by the movies I haven't watched..that is, until he is reminded that I have seen the Back to the Future series no less than 14 bazillion times.

Fried Green Tomatoes, is a good clean movie which covers it all--tragedy, comedy, and drama.  The movie alternates between present day and the past as Jessica Tandy's character (Ninny Threadgoode) tells Evelyn, played by Kathy Bates, of the happenings of a small town in 1920s Alabama. It is through Ninny's stories that Evelyn learns how to assert herself with her husband and the world around her.  

I really enjoyed this movie and I am happy to add it to our collection.  I'm looking forward to watching it again so I can pay more attention to the lesser known characters as they all have very important roles in the plot development.  

Would I watch it again? Yes
Is it family friendly? Yes, however, the plot is most likely too complicated for young children to follow, but they could be in the same room with out issue.  

Mommy Bear Media is a wonderful source for movies that you can trust are family-friendly.  They have older films like this one, as well as, new releases and they offer free shipping and competitive prices.  Check them out next time you're looking to add to your movie collection!
