Sweet Home Alabama: Then and Now – 12 Years Later
Green Railroad Bridge (Real name: CSX Railroad)
Jake and Andrew are making their way to the Civil War Battlefield in this scene so Andrew can surprise Melanie. We all know how that surprise turned out. Nonetheless, notice the green CSX railroad bridge in Jake’s rear window. This bridge is located only a few hundred feet away from the courthouse (aka Pigeon Creek Sheriff’s Department).
Side note: The cat story that Jake shares with Andrew in this scene is actually a true story that dates back to 1932. It took place in a small town in Arizona. The story almost didn’t make it into the movie since it was a bit raw.
