Storyline

The movie is based on Ntozake Shange's play "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf." Unlike the original play which featured only 7 women known by colors performing the collection of 20 poems, the movie has given each of the 20 characters names. Each of the poems deal with intense issues that particularly impact women in a thought-provoking commentary on what it means to be a female of color in the world. Written by Anonymous

its sad to see so much haters...
10 November 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry to write this down, there is so much haters around here! people that don't know anything about movies whatsoever.

don't write a review after reading the "expert critics" those journal critics are so lame they are full of sorrow, dreams that they didn't accomplish, its sad to see the beautiful work from Tyler Perry, getting so much hate.

GREAT MOVIE!!! personal opinion here shouldn't be used as review, there is a lot of kind of movies, people that like horror, thriller, drama, comedy.

if you don't like, please don't be a hater!
