a must see for girls 17 and up, I would not take my 12yr old son to see it. Too much sexual references. Overall a good inspirational movie for adult viewers

decent movie with some flaws.

i am not saying that i absolutely loved it over i am blown away by this movie, it was a decent contribution to the these type of Art house movies, it was Mr Tyler Perry's first time doing this kind of movie. he did a decent job not a great one but of course he will someday but that doesn't mean to just slam this movie, give extremely bad reviews. i don't understand why critics hate it so much. i know i did not liked the whole movie or somethings in it but that doesn't mean to just call it a disaster. movie was really disturbing and very emotional, seeing these different women's life and their different problems they face and all that things were really well shown but the problem is that they were first of all too much to show in little time, audience could not just connect with it instantly, too many stories too many emotions. i think this was the problem why everyone is hating this movie. this movie has perfect casting and very great performances. Janet, kimberly, Thandie, Loretta, Phylicia and everyone else performed brilliantly their own characters. somewhat overdone but its ok. little bit problem in the writing of this movie, something to really notice and editing too. women can see that their are many different ways of abuses they have and men can see how they effects and completely change upside down women's life. Any woman can relate and men as well can see and hear struggles that their mothers,sisters, wives and friends never talk about. its deep, intense and passionate BUT definitely with some flaws or other wise this could have been a great movie. AND yes it doesn't reminded me of Precious i mean come on people grow up. Go see it for just MR Tyler perry.

powerful enough, you should take your children to see it!

I think this is such a powerful movie! although there is a rape seen, i think based on your childs maturity, that a 12 year can see this. at 12 i seen worse (for black history month that is). as a parent you, may want to talk about the metaphors used in the movie because they may not understand them . if you are a colored woman i would recommend talking about the portrayal of the black men in the movie. besides the excellent poetic style, i recommend that this will go down in our history (black history) as a film that shows just how strong black women are!
