| I could watch this movie 4 times or more a year, haven't but point is, it never gets boring and there is a huge eye opening message on female integrity. Whether or not you were aware, this message brings clarity to light in a way of morning sunshine beams on a body of calm water. |
This story reinstalls our potential as women to have a great life, independent of a man's clutches on our desires and actions. As should be all human goal, greater is to give back to our community in a particular way that fulfills a personal need. This movie depicts the very core as it moves through all kinds of emotions, assessments, plans and actions.
An indirect statement beams in which women do need women; as indeed we are venus, men are mars and that without women of integrity, the world would be a sad place to exist. Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn were perfect as main actresses to relay this very important knowledge. The choice of music was excellent. The final song and dance forces the most tone deaf clutz to recite as it is extremely pleasant to the ear and eye; proud, happy, uplifting and strong! I rate this fabulous movie as excellent and a must buy for personal and sharing with both women and men of friends and family!
