Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Steel Magnolias is so immersed by the conviction of its story that in a way it becomes an extension of our own human experience."
‑ David Keyes,
"For all its violations of good taste and critical criteria, I laugh and cry every time, and I'll never let it go. So sue me."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"What the film has to offer is superficial, though enjoyable entertainment."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"chooses to leave the rearing of her moppet to Dylan McDermott...or Dermot Mulroney. Doesn't matter."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Good character study ruined by cliche-driven plot"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Three-hanky special, but with lots of laughs, too."
‑ Ellen MacKay, Common Sense Media
