Editorial Reviews

Based on Terry McMillan's best-selling novel, A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT, stars Academy Award(R), Golden Globe(R), Daytime Emmy(R), Grammy(R), and Tony Award(R) winner Whoopi Goldberg as irascible matriarch Viola Price. When Viola learns that her next asthma attack is likely to kill her, she sets out to fix her fractured family before she sets foot anywhere near the grave. Proudly choosing to keep her health issues a secret, she contends with sibling rivalry, teen pregnancy, and prescription drug addiction -- and that's just one of her four kids. There's also a jailbird son to teach how to be a better father, a granddaughter in big trouble, and an estranged husband to rescue from his scheming young girlfriend. It's the kind of meddling the Price family hasn't experienced from Viola in decades, and she won't have an easy time bending her loved ones to her will.

The storyline had a lot of issues that are going on in the world today with families. Some folks may be a little scared of issues like molestation, prescription drug abuse, falling out of love with your spouse, child abuse, jealousy and hatred in the family and other things that happens in the family that people dont want to talk about. BRAVO LIFETIME. I really think if they made this a movie for theaters it would've been a cult classic. It reminded me of the movie "Soul Food". You must have this movie in your collection. I will be buying it myself. My 80 y/o mother loved it and that's saying a lot coming from her. Thnx for reading my review and be blessed.

This was a movie based on the book by the same title by Terry McMillan, and for the most part, it stuck to it. Whoopi's character has a husband who has moved on from her to a younger woman with kids, her daughters are at each other's throats, and her son can't seem to keep it together long enough to stay out of jail. All she want to do is make them come together long enough to settle their issues, because she feels like the next asthma attack will kill her. In the end, they did come together,but not until all Hell breaks loose. Sometimes, things must fall apart before they can be put back together again, and this movie proves it. Wonderful cast and easily identifiable, totally loved it!!!

I don't know why this did not come to the movies, it has a great cast. This is a story any mother would love. I am a true Terry McMillian fan. I have read all her books and watch all the movies that where made from her books, I can relate to all of them. I am buying this movie for myself and for my mom. I have watched it 3 times already. Great movie, great story line. A must see!!! My husband also enjoyed it and agrees with me, should have came to the movies. I am glad I don't have to wait to order it.

I'm a big fan of Whoopi, but not necessarily some of the movies or movie rolls that she has catered to over the years. For sure, Whoopi is naturally funny--but I simply adore what she can do on a serious note (i.e., "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" episode. I've seen this episode twice--and I still shudder at Whoopi's performance.). Comedians like Whoopi, Robin & Richard are the perfect poster children for heavy (bone marrow) drama. Kudos to Terry McMillan--and welcome back! The characters are well thought out; the script is intelligent, smartly funny…complex, but clear. The letter reading scene is heart-wrenching and most effective. Bravo and thank you to Tichina, Anika, Kimberly and Mekhi—and Ving! I do hope Miss McMillan can find her way to do the sequel of "Waiting to Exhale." Because, Terry…girrrrl, you know you can work a conversation between characters.

Great Movie! Whoopi Goldberg is so down to earth. You really think that she is the mother of this crazy family, and you feel for her.

So my roommate introduced me to this movie this past Summer. And I have watched this about 5x's (that is how much I love this movie). To the creator and Mastermind of this film thank you! This film has opened my eyes to a lot of things that go on within African American Families that are left unsaid. In this film Whoopi played the mother who had realized that she had made some poor decision making as both a mother and a wife. Throughout the film she finds out that she don't have much longer to live so she tries to bring her children together so that she can tell them at once but as usual that did not happen. Moreover I LOVED LOVED LOVED this film and I encourage families to watch this movie. It can possibly help a dying family.
