Jada Pinkett Smith,
This story based on the best selling novel by Terry McMillan follows the lives of four African-American women as they try to deal with their very lives. Friendship becomes the strongest bond between these women as men, careers, and families take them in different directions. Often light-hearted this movie speaks about some of the problems and struggles the modern women face in today's world. Written by

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.
[she shuts the door in his face]

Angela Basset was good as expected, but Whitney has no Range as an actress. The screenplay also neglected to portray, on film, the greatness of this novel. Instead of promoting sisterhood, they emphasized the canine-qualities of men. Read the book; rent Soul Food instead!
