Excellent movie
6 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am so happy that I set my VCR to record this movie back in '96 (or'97) because it hasn't aired on TV since then...at least not here in NY it hasn't. This movie basically follows the friendship of two women in their 20's, living in New York during the late 70's (not the 80's). When one of the women decides to marry a man she barely knows, the other feels abandon and goes on a journey of self-discovery. "Girlfriends" is both funny and depressing, but depressing in a good way (if that makes any sense). I won't go into any further details about this movie. I will say this, though, if you're lucky enough to get your hands on a copy of this movie, watch it and you'll find yourself watching it again and again. I've lost count on how many times I've watched it. Yes, the movie is that enjoyable. I like it.
