Editorial Reviews

Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, and Whoopi Goldberg head up an all-star cast in a vibrant world where friends and strangers dream, fear, cry, love, and laugh out loud in an attempt to find their true selves. Adapted by writer/director Tyler Perry from Ntozake Shange's acclaimed choreopoem, this gripping film paints an unforgettable portrait of what it means to be a woman of color in the modern world.

Customer Reviews

Much needed movie for all to see.
ALETHA G. BLACKSHEAR
When women have a healthy love and esteem for themselves they will not put up with certain things or allow unhealthy men to enter into their lives.

Tyler Perry did a wonderful job of casting such great actress.

I absolutely loved this movie. I titled my review "Multifaceted" because Black women are multifaceted like diamonds. They are beautiful and come in all colors, are strong and endure. Some may be a little rough around the edges at first but if or when that precious gem finally shines through they are awesome.

I also loved this movie because it didn't focus on one part of the Black female culture. It showed Black women who are successful, talented, trusting, naive, hopeful, bitter, religious, fanatic, loving, intelligent, insightful, wise, troubled and above all strong.

I truly hope that critics don't take the title literally and label it as just a movie about Black women. The issues that the characters faced concerned all women. Any woman, Black, White, Hispanic, etc. can see a little bit of themselves in at least one of the characters. I saw a little of myself in at least three.

Thank you Tyler Perry for bringing this wonderful story to the big screen.

I watched this one with my wife...and to say we "enjoyed it" doesn't quite seem sufficient or even apt here.
While black women are indeed the focal point characters..there are indeed so many colors on display that all girls and boys can learn a lot or at least ask themselves some serious questions regardless of origin...

Some couldnt watch the scenes in this one in the movie theatre...it was too powerful they said, too strong,too much...but they went back after pulling themselves together.

Tyler take a bow....I don't need Hollywood to justify your place among the very best for me....but it would be nice ...around awards time.

God Bless you Sir.

I was a little worried about how they were going to write a script from a poem into a movie, but they pulled it off. This movie was telling the story of black women, but it could have been any women in these stories. We all have choices and not all of the choices are wise but we do have the ability to change our course in life and this movie showed this. From domestic violence and rape to abortion, nothing was left unturned.

I would recommend this to be part of a women's study curriculum or at the least apart of sex/health education. I am a married woman in her 40's with children and any one of those could have been me. I highly recommend this movie for every woman, especially young women.

If you love the original play you will love this movies. Tyler interacts the characters without destroying the original impact of the poetry. Each actress shines in her own right. This movie reminds us of the power within each of us is ready to be put to good use. Do not lose yourself in love. If you respect yourself you will love yourself. Don't be a victim. Be a victor.

Wow..Tyler Perry & his cast makes you feel for these women, if you can't relate. But, this is more than a movie its art in motion..with dance, poetry, and a beautiful soundtrack. If you haven't opened your mind to change, this will definitely give you several reasons why we all need to be more attentive towards one another. I'm so glad I purchased this movie instead of renting it. The poetry at times was a little too deep to grasp within that moment , so to watch & to listen closely, it will help you to grasp the full knowledge & understanding , as to where each colorful character was leading us to , and that is to the end of their rainbows. Then, I sat back & wondered how did I get over? Never alone.

Mr. Perry gets no love from Hollywood because he is doing his thing outside of Hollywood. "For Colored Girls" is in my opinion his best film to date. It keeps the poems from the play and weaves them into a story.
Janet Jackson looks like the A-list woman she has become. Glammed up and just beautiful. Kimberly Elise should have gotten some Oscar consideration. She carries alot of the weight of the mega-emotionally charged drama. I am pleased to welcome this picture into my collection.

I saw the movie in theaters and I must say I was sorely disappointed with this movie. I've read the poetry, which was written in the 1970's and reflected upon a much different time and placement for Black women. I understand Tyler Perry's want to re-invent and structure the story for this day and age, but I wasn't impressed by any means. I was actually quite saddened at how naive and completely victimized every female character in this movie was. I mean one female after the other seemed to walk directly into a fire pit and then seem to look dauntingly for sympathy. Speaking as a Black woman, I found no way to relate to ANY of these women. A mother too blind to see the cancer of a man she's living and allowing to control the miserable life around her for which she later seeks sympathy for his antics; A woman desperately seeking male attention that she continually allows a man to dictate when she receives his love because she's sharing him with another woman; A woman who is so aptly blinded by a man's slight charm that she becomes his rape victim; A woman grasping so tightly to power and control around her because she's lost control in her love life and wakes up with AIDS; A girl who becomes sexually promiscuous before her time and ends up pregnant; Her sister who uses her body as a means of "trade" to make sense of being sexually abused years earlier; Then you have Phylicia Rashad & Whoopi Goldberg's whose story lines seemed to be dropped in more as product placement than anything. Then you have the seventh woman who cannot have children and that seems to be her only problem, which compared to the other women really can be solved. I was appalled at this film and I would not buy it or ever watch it again, the depictions don't resonate "Empowerment" but shear and utter contempt because as Black women I believe we're supposed to not only be smarter than this, but a whole lot better than this. This movie doesn't make us look strong but weak and misguided.
