Ma'am, were you aware that your car was on fire?
[Bernadine nods her head while smoking a cigarette]
Ma'am, did you start this fire?
[she puffs smoke and plainly looks at him]
You know, it's against the law to burn anything except trash in your yard.
[flicks off ashes from her cigarette]
It is trash.
Look, this is a nice area. Luckily, a neighbor cared enough. Listen, the next time you want to burn something...
It won't happen again.

While this movie truly is bound to be more appealing to women than men, it is a touching story of four best friends. How they stick together and grow together through life's mistakes, joys, and bad taste in men. I love Angela Bassett and she is outstanding in this movie. The other 3 ladies, Whitney,Lela, and Loretta do great jobs too. This movie is filled with sweet moments, great laughter, and maybe some tears. Just a wonderful movie that shows what friendship is about. I have not read the book, but I have heard many times that the book is better... but hey thats true for almost every book turned movie. So all I know is I love this movie, and every time I watch it, it gives me great pleasure. Not too mention the soundtrack is fabulous! Whitney, Brandy, Babyface,Faith Evans,and Mary J Blige make the music in the film absolutely great.
