a good mother daughter flim. it show kids that your mom was young once and had a whole different life before you. also it is a great flim on forgiveness, we are not perfect. would say some scene would be hard on younger kids.

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood is overacted by its performers and is too serious to be a comedy.

When a woman discusses her challenging childhood during a interview, the door is opened for full disclosure with her difficult mother. Uneven, and not very convincing, this dramedy lacks the sincerity and depth of true emotion that the material requires.

Very confusing and boring.

A portrait of a seemingly normal southern family, Divine Secrets digs deep into the psyche of troubled Siddha and her tumultuous relationship with her Southern Belle mother.

"Divine" indeed. This is such a wonderful movie. Albeit corny at times, and overly dramatic it is still worth seeing. Ellen Burstyn kicks butt as the vivacious and eccentric Vivi. This is a movie about trials and tribulations, but also love that surpasses all understanding and the deep type of forgiveness that heals old wounds. The Ya-Ya Sisterhood rules!

No mortal man should ever experience this atrocity.

Gosh, I almost stopped watching this because of Sandra Bullock, just can't stand her - but I'm glad I did watch this to the end. What this movie gave to me - don't know though...

I don't really remember this movie cause it's been a long time sense I've seen it, so I want to see it again. But I remember it being very boring.

It wasn't as bad as it could have been for a movie my girlfriend forced me to watch at 11:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning.

I knew there was a reason why I haven't watched this until now. It's depressing and reminds me of events from my childhood. Not going to watch again.

Sandra Bullock is the best thing about this movie, everything she does rings emotionally true while she still manages to be funny. Ellen Burstyn also shines as the older Vivi. However, her coven of friends seem to be stretching to play Southern women - two of them (Maggie Smith and Fionnula Flanagan) are not even American, and somehow I was aware of this throughout. The story is also an uneasy mix of really awful personal histories and bad behavior, with lighthearted comic touches of wacky Southern women. For me, it didn't work. Vivi had so much spunk and humor as a young girl, and also as an older woman. Where she falls flat and seems like an entirely different person from the other two is her years as a young woman, played by Ashley Judd. For some reason, whenever Ashley Judd is on screen, the movie just seems to go flat. I just don't believe her as this wacky, spunky, fiery troubled woman. You can see her acting in every scene, and it's tiresome. And, in the scene where she supposedly whips her children, she's clearly holding back - it's like a fight scene where you see how the fist misses the chin.

Not a bad movie. Good story, good actors, good ending.
