A touch sappy, but nonetheless, the first African American woman bonding movie out of Hollywood was a gigantic hit. Likely because it resists the pervasive depictions of black women as welfare moms, junkies or prostitutes. The film is peopled with gorgeous black women who are skilled professionals incomes and wardrobes to match. That they engage in more than a little spirited male-bashing may deter some viewers.
