The movie meanders on and on, like a bad sexual dream, until you finally wake up mumbling: Stella, please: leave that groove thang alone.
Delivers guilt-free escapism about pretty people having wicked-hot fun in pretty places.
Stella may be frothy and paper-thin, but it's also another great success for star Angela Bassett, who transforms the film into an infomercial for her considerable abilities.
All formula gloss, a romance that tackles some difficult issues by missing them altogether.
I'm not denying that a 40-year- old woman might be self-conscious about going around with someone this young. But the subject isn't interesting or provocative enough to sustain an entire movie.
The issues that arise from such a May/September male/female pairing are sensitively and intelligently explored.
The timing couldn't be better for How Stella Got Her Groove Back.
The "Groove" is on the move in Sullivan's ethnically snappy and exotic May-December romancer. Bassett and Diggs make for a sizzling couple
There's only one thing missing from this story, and it's the main ingredient: conflict.
Gives Angela Bassett the full star treatment, and she gives it right back.
There is insufficient chemistry, more tension and fighting than romance, and no epiphanal moment to demonstrate that Stella has indeed gotten her groove back.
Stella's groove, like the film itself, doesn't run deep.
This film is so fake. A shame because actresses like Angela Bassett and Whoopi Goldberg is one of my fav's but too bad they were in this. Such a waste.
Likeable chick-flick that mainly deals with whether a relationship can work around a 20 year age difference. It even chucks in "best friend dying of cancer" half way through but still manages to stay upbeat about it. And it's surprisingly well shot. But I had to remove half a star because there's a desperate rush to the airport at the end.
Great cast about a 40 plus stock broker on vacation in Jamaica.
a movie about angry women
