A backwoods Alabama boy named Peejoe -short for Peter Joseph- gets a quick education in grown-up matters like freedom in 1965. The catalyst is an unlikely source – his glamorous, eccentric Aunt Lucille, who escapes from her abusive husband and takes off for Hollywood to pursue her dreams of TV stardom.

Film Review

Crazy in Alabama pits violence against our attempts to understand, live with, and stop it. * A woman, abused by her husband, responds by killing him and decapitating him so she can hold him prisoner and prove her worth to him.* A community, abused by those in power, responds with civil disobedience.* A boy, horrified by the violence, prejudice, and hypocrisy of his role models, calls on the law and the media to bring about justice.And yet… it’s funny! "All I know is, one minute she was married to Uncle Charlie; and the next, she was gone wid’ his head." The instant I heard that one line I was hooked, and would not turn away until it was done.Excellent filmmaking.

Yet, another movie about a battered wife in the south. Melanie Griffith plays a battered wife who snaps and decapatates her abusive husband and heads to Hollywood to become a movie star with his head in a hotbox. The film’s only redeeming quality was the character Peejoe (Lucas Black), who was the hero in the film, and the film’s focus on the Civil Rights Movement. And Meat Loaf’s role as the evil sherriff who kills a black teen for swimming in the pool was downright abysmal. Everytime he opened his mouth, you’d expect him to sing "Paradise By the Light", or "Two out of Three Ain’t Bad". This was Antonio Bandaras’s directorial debut. If you’re a fan of Antonio or Melanie Griffith see some of their other movies. Skip this one. It’s just your typical "vitcimized woman" movie, nothing special about it. Not worth the time.

OK, I’m not going into any highbrow, "see how smart I am", socio-anthropological analysis. This movie is not about social commentary. This movie is ridiculous and absurd,and oh so funny. Melanie Griffith is delightful as the kooky aunt who seems to be teetering on the edge. Yeah, yeah, she brutally murdered and decapitated her abusive husband. So what? He had it coming. Aside from this little mistake, you just can’t help loving her. She is kind and caring, and sweet as sugar. See the movie for what it is, a far-fetched farce, and you will split a gut laughing. If you’re looking for social commentary try "Schindler’s List".
