It was cheap acting and had zero ability to be any where near entertaining in the least. This was a pathetic attempt to copy the original. For people that never saw the original, don't bother with this remake, you'll get the wrong impression about the original cast, acting ability, and storyline. The original comedy drama has Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton, etc. and was nominated for eight Academy awards. Stick to the original film.

I didn't see the original film that this is a remake of,but this remake is so annoying it kind of makes me wonder how the original film actually is.This is a miserable failure as a comedy because i didn't laugh one time at none of it's attempts to be funny.It is definitely better on the drama tip,but this is still an instantly forgettable film despite the fact that is it well made with good performances overall.It's a DAMN shame that Phylicia Rashad is just another BEAUTIFUL black actress that also bleached her skin as well,and i am sick and tired of seeing these extremely BEAUTIFUL black actresses do this in real life by the way period.It's also unfortunate how the movie does not explain the very relevant death of one of the other extremely BEAUTIFUL black actresses character in this film,BUT I DIGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Average black drama. Remake of a movie I had no desire to watch when everyone raved about it. Boring and overwrought with drama. Well acted, but I didn't care enough about the characters or the story to recommend watching it.
