Perry aims high, and doesn't embarrass himself in tackling this iconic but dated play.

Big Hollywood

"For Colored Girls" features a lot of heartache and pain, but lacks any sense of purpose. It sacrifices depth for despair and suffers because of it.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Best" and "worst", "good" and "bad" are judgment calls that seem unusually difficult to apply here... [Tyler Perry's] strangest and most endlessly fascinating film.

Perry's awkwardly constructed screenplay and equally muddled direction is one 'metaphysical dilemma' not even these strong, and strongly gifted, women can conquer.

Tyler Perry movies certainly have their place in society, as they undoubtedly have a strong moral core and are made with noble intentions. On the evidence of For Colored Girls though, he should leave the serious drama alone.

Almost everyone in the cast is too talented for this.

It's refreshing to see an all black cast, in a film that places black women's stories front and centre; it's just a shame that the stories are such downers.

Director Tyler Perry has taken on a huge task in bringing Ntozake Shange's stage play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf to the screen.

These performances are exceptional. While the structure of the film doesn't work very well, there is nothing at all wrong with the acting.

'For Colored Girls' doesn't do justice to the play it's based upon. However, the talent Tyler Perry has assembled here cannot be denied.

A slice-of-life soap opera on what it's like to be a black woman in America.

While gunning for the same empowering vibe as Waiting To Exhale, enduring this miserable effort from Tyler Perry is more like praying to expire.

Excruciating when it's bad, which is far too often, but a brave failure in lots of ways.

Perry crafts poorly paced soap opera, playing out in the most obvious and crass manner possible the situations that the poems subtly dance around. Shange's original text...

At least an interesting failure.

Tyler Perry's drama is beautifully acted but Ntozake Shange's multiple, interlocking narratives ultimately defy his efforts to bring them to the screen.

So thickly does Perry lay on the sanctimony and self-pity, you begin to wonder if it's all a spoof. Stick a Wayans brother in there and you could call it Tragic Movie.

Perry has assembled a formidable ensemble, including Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, Tessa Thompson, Kerry Washington, Whoopi Goldberg, Janet Jackson, Phylicia Rashad and, in the most searing cameo, Macy Gray.

Knight at the Movies

Perry gives with one hand and takes with the other-the thrill of seeing these actresses "do their stuff" is decimated by Perry's insistence on welding a plot and adding "contemporary" additions to Shange's lyrical, timeless monologues.

Tyler Perry proves that he is even more ham-handed and cartoonish with drama than he is with his incredibly popular so-called comedies.
