5.0 out of 5 stars Multifaceted like a Diamond November 10, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Empowering Movie November 15, 2010
By Sharen
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tyler Perry's best film to date! February 7, 2011
By M. Bell
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes! December 29, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the casting/acting! Get the message! February 12, 2011
By Pilinky
Format:DVD
It's amazing how so many people liked the book but disliked the movie, yet they are conveying the same message. That women in general, go through so many terrible things because they give so much of themselves and they overlook so many dangers for the sake of love. It's not any particular race of women who experience situations like this, but all races: asian, white, latino, black, etc. It's just that this book/film was given from a black woman's perspective. So lets look at the film and perhaps we can reach out to someone who might be going through the kind of hell that these women portray whether they are black, white, asian, latin...

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Beyond Words February 10, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Colored Girls October 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ntozake Shange's "For Colored Girls" - While watching this movie I had mixed emotions but continue to be grateful to Tyler Perry for bringing this important work to film. This film really touches all races of women in a variety of ways.

All Black women are not like and most have not experienced the tragic women portrayed in this work. However, all of us know someone who is/has. "Precious" was "exposed" with Black actresses and the Black community screamed at the audacity of showing Black women in those situations. I found "For Colored Girls" as illuminating as "Precious". I learned something more about the nature of man, albeit horrific, and have a more compassionate understanding of certain personalities.

We are the most multifacted women on the face of this earth. We, Black women, have experienced every emotional experience known to man and still "We Rise".

The movie industry has shown white (and other races) women in a variety of instances and we have laughed, cried and wondered why did they perform in that particular venue. Well, now they are showing Black women in that same critical way. In every movie I have ever seen I have either been simply entertained or I have learned something about human nature.

Enjoy lessons exposed - Thank You Tyler Perry.

Anita Jacobson
