A tale of two friendships, one which existed several decades ago and another in the present day. Evelyn Couch (Kathy Bates) is a middle aged woman who has seen a son off to college and now finds herself trying to get her husbands attention again. One day while visiting a relative in a home she meets Mrs Threadgoode (Jessica Tandy) who begins to tell her the story of two old friends, Ruth and Idgie. Evelyn's visits become a regular occurrence as Mrs Threadgoode continues her story and the two women become good friends which helps Evelyn come to terms with her life and mid-life crisis.

At the same time we are treated to the story of Ruth and Idgie. Ruth has been asked by Idgie's mother to help tame her wild daughter and the pair form a strong bond which gets tested several times over the years by racism, an abusive husband and illness.

This is a beautiful movie about the wonders friendship. I've watched it many times and still love it. Several `laugh out loud' moments but also those which will bring a tear to your eye no matter how many times you watch it.

A must see for everyone.

You could, possibly, categorise this as a chick-flick.
But if you do, do not dismiss it as such.
One of my all-time favourite movies along with The Godfather 1&2; Pulp Fiction; and Betty Blue, to name but a few (for reference).

A middle-aged woman (Kathy Bates) finds herself becoming lost in a mid-life crisis.
Taking pity on an old lady (Jessica Tandy) in a nursing home, she is told the story of 'Idgie Threadgood' (Mary Stuart Masterson).
The two quickly become friends and news of Idgie's alter-ego T'Wanda becomes an inspiration for Bates' character and who begins to assume some of her strength and spirit when faced with 'modern-day' challenges.

Two touching and charming stories told simultaneously but set in two ages, generations apart.
Provides amusement, dismay, and excitement, all the way to the end.

Guy Warning:-
I'm a big bloke and I've watched this a dozen times or more.
Cry every time.
If watching with your lady have some Kleenex hidden a safe distance away to avoid embarrassment.

This film has it all what it takes to make a really great movie. It is well done, an impressive cast, deep emotions, drama, deep friendship, laughter and never in a tacky, unrealistic way. One can relate to these characters very easily. The switch between past and present works great. I was hooked from the very first moment. I share the previous reviewer's view that one can see it several times and not getting bored rather seeing different aspect of this excellent movie more clearly. This is "toowanda"... see the movie and you will understand what it means. For now 5 stars would actually not enough to give to this movie. Just see it!!! You really must!!

Truely one of my favourite movies of all time! Jessica Tandy and Kathy Bates shine in everything they do, so putting them together resulted in an amazing combination.

The emotional story drags you in from the get-go and has a few twists which keep you hooked throughout. The comedy moments speak for themselves - 'TOWANDA!!' (< You'll see what I mean)

The point that interested me the most in this movie was that it constantly jumps from 1920's to 1980's era as two seperate story lines intertwine beautifully and finally come together at the end. Brilliantly done!

This movie was introduced to me in a very special way by a very special person. Perfect, great memories!

THE SECRET'S IN THE SAUCE!!! Go try some! :-D

Fried Green Tomatoes is a great film, most of us already know this, just as we know that the only thing it lacks is for the romantic relationship between Idgy and Ruth to be realised on screen. Do not expect this from the extended version, the only hint of mysterious deleted scenes is at the end of a special feature documentary; while the credits roll - Ruth and Idgy are lying on a blanket (during their honey excursion). I'm surprised it didn't make the cut of the extended version. However, the documentary is good and the extended scenes, in the film, add a little more depth to the emotional ties between the characters.

The perfect gift for all movie buffs is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

One of my my favourite films,this is a touching drama surrounding a friendship between a middle-aged housewife and an elderly lady in a nursing home.

Over a series of visits the old lady recounts the tale of a now abandoned town of Whistlestop. Told in flashback form she centres her story on a couple of women (Idgie and Ruth) and there subsequent adventures. Although dare I say it a bit of a chick flick this wasn't entirely without it's moments.

As the story flits between depression-era and the 1980's we learn more about these women's live's and the home-life of downtrodden 80's house-wife Evelyn played by Kathy Bates. Mary Stuart Masterson is the star of the depression-era scenes as the precocious Idgie in a role where she brought all her tom-boyish charm to. An engaging and sentimental story this was not as bad as I had feared.
