Okay, so I've read every review on this movie, and none of them touch upon the things that I (and most of my friends) personally think make this movie great. One might say this movie is man-bashing, woman-empowering, etc, etc, and while it IS about these things, I think that those aspects pale in comparison to why this movie is great for me: these women are such DIVAS, it's RIDICULOUSLY hilarious! The lines that come out of their mouths, and the situations that they get themselves into are utterly jaw-dropping, causing you to say "NO SHE DIDN'T" just say that! "No, she DIDN'T just do that!" "NO SHE DIDN'T" just have sex with a man and say "my body NEEDS this!" You are constantly left absolutely amazed with the boldness, brashness, and utter DIVA-ness of these crazy hoochie ghetto mamas, who do and say the things that you wouldn't dare do yourself. If you are into seeing beautiful black divas who know they da sh*t, work their bad-a** selves and shake their booties, and still come out clean without breakin their acrylic nails, then you will think this movie is off the hizzy. If you don't understand what I just meant when I said all that, then you probably won't appreciate the humor in these BLACK DIVAS!

This was a great Whitney movie. She did a great job and so did all the others. I feel that some people are unfair towards Whitney, sure she's not an oscar caliber actress, but she definitly is a GOOD ACTRESS. I really also liked her acting in The Bodyguard and The Preacher's Wife. All her 3 movies were good. The movie was funny, touching and I didn't find it to be male bashing but rather about experiences of a group of women friends. I am also happy that it was a great success at the box office because it's rare that a movie about black women can go no.1, but thanks to the star power of Whitney Houston, it debuted at no.1 and was a big hit despite being released in limited theaters because it's a black movie who are a minority in the US in terms of numbers. By the way, Wesley Snipes is in the movie, he chose not to be credited but he's there for several minutes.

I'm not gay, but I loved this movie. When Angela Bassett (foxy, foxy FOXY!) burned that car I jumped up and yelled "You go, girl!" and I almost knocked over my wine spritzer. My mom was like "shut up." I gave her the finger but she didn't see because she was upstairs on "the machine." She's invalid, but she just says she's resting. Screw her. Walk! Anyway, I wish I was Whitney Houston. I'd punch that Bobby Brown in the teeth and then sleep in satin. My life makes me cry... I'm still waiting to exhale...

That is what it is. Really, you need to 'inhale' the classic. This movie is timeless. It deals with universal laughter and heartaches. Angela Basset gives one hell of a performance.
Also, a "myth" about this movie is that it is "all women" cast. Untrue. Some of the finest black actors are in this movie.
The very expressive soundtrack that features an all woman artist is really cool.
I watch this movie a lot because it really is a fun movie.

What first attracted me to this movie was the theme song ( waiting to exhale) or as I call it waiting for the new life. I am really amazed with how the society of Afro American life is presented in this movie characters were all well chosen. I do recommend this movie to everyone.
