Product Description

Includes: Brown Sugar (2002) A hot ensemble cast featuring Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Queen Latifah and Mos Def shines in this romantic comedy about love and laughter in the world of hip-hop. Sydney (Lathan) and Dre (Diggs) are childhood friends who share a passion for music and unsung love for each other. But when Dre marries the wrong woman, Sydney must make her move or risk losing her soul mate forever. How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998) Get ready to groove with this heartwarming comedy full of love and friendship starring sexy Angela Bassett and Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg. Through good times and bad, Stella (Bassett) and Delilah (Goldberg) have always had each other. Now when Stella's so busy that she's forgotten what matters in life, Delilah encourages her friend to head for a quick vacation to Jamaica. And when she does, Stella finds herself on an unexpected voyage of self-discovery, and even love! Waiting To Exhale (1995) Based on Terry McMillan's best-selling novel and featuring the number one smash hit Exhale (Shoop, Shoop), this funny and touching film starring Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett is directed by Forest Whitaker. Four women in search of true love find that through it all - careers, children, challenges, love and loss - the one thing that remains constant in their lives is friendship.

Brown Sugar: One of 2002's most underrated films, Brown Sugar offers more than you'd expect from a conventional romantic comedy. The love story between Dre (Taye Diggs) and Sidney (Sanaa Lathan) is the least interesting part of the movie; the costars have delightful chemistry, but their hookup is a given. What's refreshing is the way the story draws a parallel between Dre and Sidney's longtime friendship (they meet as kids in a 1984 flashback) and the evolution of hip-hop music from urban roots to dubious mainstream acceptance. Dre's a disillusioned producer at pop-fueled Millennium Records, married to a beauty (Nicole Ari Parker) who cheats while embracing her coveted status quo. Editor of an influential music magazine, Sidney's tentatively engaged to a basketball star (Boris Kodjoe), but these loves are obstacles, and Dre and Sidney are meant for each other. In bringing them together, Brown Sugar allows for human mistakes, intelligent solutions, and the kind of three-dimensional behavior that romantic comedies typically don't provide. --Jeff Shannon

How Stella Got Her Groove Back: Based on Terry McMillan's best-selling novel, How Stella Got Her Groove Back stars Angela Bassett as a 40-year-old, Manhattan stock trader and single mom whose static life gets a jolt during a vacation with her pal (Whoopi Goldberg) in Jamaica. Sparks fly when Bassett meets a 20-year-old stud (Taye Diggs) who has an ambivalent career path but a great body and lots of sexual energy to burn. After some prodding by Goldberg's warm-funny secondary character, Bassett gets it on with the fellow--and proceeds to worry about what she's doing with a man half her age. The film is most enjoyable in its sunny, exotic early scenes and becomes more formulaic once the unlikely couple transports their will-we-stay-together-or-won't-we tensions back to the Big Apple. But director Kevin Rodney Sullivan goes out of his way to make a movie unabashedly thick with fantasy and wish-fulfillment for female audiences (it's Diggs who reveals a lot more flesh than the regal Bassett). This is a Saturday-night movie all around. --Tom Keogh

Waiting to Exhale: Based on a novel by Terry McMillan, this weepy melodrama about four African American women and the men who wronged them became an instant cultural phenomenon when it was released back in 1995. It's easy to see why Exhale struck a nerve: the movie boasts an attractive cast of African American actresses and personalities, including Whitney Houston, Angela Bassett, and Lela Rochon. Unfortunately, though, Exhale sags under the weight of its soapy, crisis of the week plotting and relentlessly cheery "you go, girl!" optimism. And African American men, cast here as insensitive lovers and pigheaded materialists, get the very short end of the feminist stick. Perhaps moviegoers were simply responding to the brilliant soundtrack by R&B superstar Babyface, who provided the movie's only real groove. --Ethan Brown

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jeffery Mingo on June 28, 2009
Format: DVD
Recently, I gave my father three DVDs for his birthday. Just one DVD would have come off as cheap, so several was the ticket. It is great that movies can come in bundles so that you can do less shopping.
I'm a Black male and it's my two cents that Black women would just love, love, love having this in their collection. I think a whole grip of sistas would want this for a birthday, X-mas, or Mother's Day gift. Again, less shopping with all the gratitude!
Really, if you are a Black person and the late 1990s and early 2000s were a good time in your life, then this bundle will make you nostalgic in a good way. These movies came before 9/11 and economic downturns and housing market crashes. This may help you heal in today's tragedies. I know folk love them some Tyler Perry, but this may be especially appreciated if you don't care for the way Mr. Perry's work has flooded the market and speaks for the lowest common demoninator.
My one critique is that this should have been a 4-pack, rather than a 3-pack. This should have included "Love & Basketball" since that and "Brown Sugar" were basically the same film.

Good value for your money. Not that I was crazy about them all. I don't really like "Waiting to exhale", I thought "Brown sugar" was just ok (but don't blame me- I watch anything with Sanaa Lathan in it :D), I enjoyed "How stella got her groove back". And that just about sums up my review on the "it's a love thang" box set.

I constantly reminisced on scenes from these movies that brought joy and laughter through entertainment. Now I have them and can watch them as much as I want. Great set of movies, be ready to laugh, cry, but most important rejoice in these love stories.
