Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002)
Critic Consensus: Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood is more melodramatic than emotionally truthful, and uneven in its mixture of time periods, actresses, laughter and tears.

Critic Reviews for Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
While there are pleasures to be had from watching so many grand actresses strut their stuff, the fact is that the overriding preoccupation here rests with surface impressions rather than psychological probity.
Better make the most of the first ten minutes of this execrable melodrama (directed by the scriptwriter of Thelma & Louise), because from then on it's the yackety-yack sisterhood in spades.
Gives us a lot to enjoy and something most studio movies don't even try for: an attempt at the richness, density and sheer contrariness of life.
As 'chick flicks' go, this one is pretty miserable, resorting to string-pulling rather than legitimate character development and intelligent plotting.
Khouri manages, with terrific flair, to keep the extremes of screwball farce and blood-curdling family intensity on one continuum.
Audience Reviews for Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
this was a waste of time. it was well acted, but it was one of the slowest moving films i have ever seen.
Very good movie. The costumes were very realistic, the acting was awesome, and it truly felt like it captured friendship.
Jumbled movie about people you have a hard time liking.
