    thanks for the post. It sounds like a really good movie to watch and he does have a good line up of celebs in this one.

    SPOILER









    What happens at the end is the women are all invited to the young girl's party for getting accepted into college. Thandie's character reluctantly invites Felicia's character to the party. As most of the women are enjoying themselves, Whoppi's character comes in and gives the daughter a gift then leaves claiming they are playing the Devil's music. The women then head to the roof where they each take turns describing the situations they been through and it ends with them embracing each other after Kimberly's character delivers an touching monologue.

    So to answer your question, no Janet's character doesnt die but she does realize that her love is precious and should be given to someone who will appreciate it.


    Hope I gave enough information to satisfy you.

    If a Tyler Perry movie doesn't have Madea in it, I don't want to see it. In fact, the only parts of the movies that are bearable are usually the ones with Madea. Comedically, he is brilliant. Dramatically, though well intentioned, he has the unparalleled talent for pairing great actors with touching themes and turning them into awkward hokey after-school-special crap.

    In this case, the movie is based on a play. Well, a sort of play. More like a series of poems that was, nonetheless, produced as a play (it was described as a "choreopoem") and was hugely successful in the 1970s.

    After a long run at the New Federal Theatre down on Henry Street in Manhattan, it moved at Papp's Public Theatre, where it opened to tremendous critical acclaim, and then it moved to Broadway, where it ran almost two years.

    There's even an earlier television adaptation of the play, using some of the original stage cast, which nonetheless wasn't completely faithful to the stage production. Like the current film (from what I hear, since I haven't seen it), the television version added men and made it less abstract. The original stage production was basically just a series of poems, performed dramatically with interaction among the actresses, and adding up to a coherent and very funny and moving show.

    I gather that this film goes further than the television production in opening up the material. Still, Perry in this case has source material of true literary merit. It may well be that he's taken that material and turned it into "awkward hokey after-school-special crap." Since I haven't seen any of his films, I have no idea. But at least some of the reviews from critics who aren't in love with his other films suggest that he's done a pretty good job. Here's a link to one of them.

    From what I've heard this movie did more than it's fair share of man bashing. I'm know Tyler knows what he's doing by catering to AA women, but since my boy didn't condone this movie I'll just wait till it comes out on netfilx or cable.

    Other than something overly spectacular, I'm not making any commitments to see Tyler Perry movies. They're a bit cheesy IMO.
