The trailers seemed funny enough and the movie is funny enough for a like. The all-star ensemble cast gathers for a monthly book club ready of ‘Fifty Shades’ and to say the least, seasoned women are not boring.

Comedy drama and good acting are all exhibited in this film. A great ensemble cast of actors and a good storyline make for a good movie going experience. I really enjoyed this movie and the complexities (reminded me a lot of ‘The Family Stone’) and learning about being Jewish (rituals after someone passes).

5 stars is all I’m saying about this movie. Fabulous ensemble cast, great storyline (from the book) and well acted! There’s so much that I can write that I liked about this movie but it would be pages long. Forest Whitaker (Cecil Gaines) should definitely get an Oscar nomination as should the movie. Oprah returns to the big screen and holds her own as Gloria Gaines. Honorable mentions are Elijah Kelley as Charlie Gaines…he added humor to the film; Cuba Gooding Jr. as Carter Wilson; Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda as President and Mrs. Reagan; Mariah Carey has a small role yet it’s intense. Honestly, I thought all of the presidential performances were great. A few emotional scenes. Must see movie!
I’m so proud of Elijah! I had the opportunity of meeting him several years ago and working with him on events in Detroit.
I got a pic with Oprah at Disneyworld’s Grand Floridian Resort where she was staying (I was next door at the Polynesian). That was my first time getting a chance to talk with her for a few minutes (I attended many tapings of the OWS before she retired).
