Product Description

Sidda Lee Walker (Sandra Bullock) is a successful playwright living in New York City. One day, after falling out with her mother Vivi (Ellen Burstyn), Sidda Lee finds herself kidnapped and taken back to her home state of Louisiana. The kidnappers are her mother's old friends Teensy (Fionnula Flanagan), Necie (Shirley Knight) and Caro (Maggie Smith) - collectively known as the Ya-Ya Sisterhood - and they resolve to tell Sidda Lee the truth about her mother's hard life.

From Amazon.co.uk

Grab your tissues and send the guys away, because Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood is the most pedigreed chick-flick since Steel Magnolias. You can tell by the title and the novelish names of the Louisiana ladies from Rebecca Wells' precious bestseller.

First there's Sidda (Sandra Bullock), a successful playwright still wrestling with her manipulative mother, Vivi (Ellen Burstyn), after a traumatic upbringing. Then there's long-time friends Teensy (Fionnula Flanagan), Necie (Shirley Knight), and Caro (scene-stealer Maggie Smith), from Vivi's secret club of "Ya-Ya Priestesses", together since childhood and determined to heal the rift between Sidda and her mum. Through an ambitious flashback structure (including Ashley Judd as the younger Vivi), screenwriter and first-time director Callie Khouri (who wrote Thelma & Louise) establishes a rich context for this mother-daughter reunion. There's plenty of humour to temper the drama, which inspires Bullock's best work in years. Definitely worth a look for the curious, but only fans of Wells' fiction will feel any twinge of loyalty. --Jeff Shannon

Cannot put into words how much of a fantastic movie this is, brilliant acting from a stellar cast, has its sad bits but is most definately a feel good movie.

I went to see this film with my friend and enjoyed it! The film funny, sad, romantic and had a good storyline and some great characters. But after leaving the cinema I couldn't work out what the point of the film was, there was no real plot and no real ending or showdown which left me disappointed. The whole film was actually a bit confusing and difficult to keep up with! I would, however recommend it for women who enjoy a cosy, tissues and tea night in.

Understanding one's parent is a difficult issue but one has to do it because it tells you much about yourself. I could sympatize very much with the basic story as I "discover" as well secrets about my parents which helped me to understand them better. But this is as well a movie about friendship, friendship which last a life time and friends who are there and act in the most difficult of times. But it is not a sad or too deep a movie. There is enough to lighten it up, but the message does not get lost. I enjoyed it very much!!

But I have to admit as much as I love Maggie Smith she is not right in the role of a Southern American. She is simply too British for this.

Otherwise an enjoyable movie.

Having been completely hooked on the book of the same name, I expected the film to be just as good. Although the actresses provide great performances, it is not quite as special as the novel. The characters have been "flattened" for the screen, and the storyline has been mutilated.

However, as a chick flick it serves it's purpose as an enjoyable experience, and still has that essence of Ya-Ya about it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The adult Sandra Bullock felt only anger at the impact on her childhood of her mother's mental health but did reach an understanding of it by the end of the film. This was very carefully crafted with no superfluous sweetness and I could identify with the Sandra Bullock character. Can't say much more really!

Great feel good movie in the 'steel magnolias' 'witches of Watson's genre. Some lines so funny they made me laugh out loud - Maggie Smith with her portable oxygen is hilarious.

Had looked around for ages in the shops for this DVD and then found it when looking through Amazon! It arrived promptly and was exactly as described! Great value for a really girly film!

After falling in love with the book I thought the film would be a pleasant way to spend the evening...I was wrong. There are a host of fairly familiar characters, well they have the same name, but the plot has been butchered (often quite pointlessly) and the warmth, humour and depth of character cut. There is no character development (a key component of the book) and most of them are no longer that likable. As adaptations go this is one of the worst I have seen. Don't bother just read the book.
