Funny Valentines (1999)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
Alfre Woodard and Loretta Devine two of the best African American actresses today.
For the commenter here who mentioned race not being mentioned...why would the filmmakers mention race? ...what would be the point? It would be like mentioning that Oprah Winfrey is African American.
I especially liked the scene when Dearie B confronts Troy, although I think she should have had more support from the onlookers.
All I want to do is buy the movie, because it great. All I want to do is buy the movie, because it great. All I want to do is buy the movie, because it great. All I want to do is buy the movie, because it great. All I want to do is buy the movie, because it great.
When a character can make you feel the emotions that they are trying to portray, then you know that you have a great movie. And that is exactly what this movie did. You laugh, you cry and you even get mad. Alfre Woodward is a great actress and held her own in this movie. But I think that Ms. Devine stole the show. Lorretta Devine is a very versatile actress and she proved just that in this movie.
This is definitely a much see film. I would recommend this to everyone who has a heart and can let a movie take you away.
The most powerful performance by Loretta Devine bought me to tears on several occasions. Her character 'Dearie B' such a loving and caring one that you could almost 'feel' the love between herself and 'Joyce Mae'.
This movie everyone should watch for the message that it sends of friendship and love, and for the powerful acting by Loretta Devine, Alfre Woodard and the rest of the wonderful very believable cast.
Such ashame, alas, I cannot find this movie anywhere in northamerica.
