DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic - How Stella Got Her Groove Back is a story from the author of the surprise hit Waiting to Exhale. Viewers who enjoyed that previous film's story about the relationship woes of middle-class African-American women will probably find something to connect with in Stella. There is also some nice comic relief from Whoopi Goldberg; fans of Goldberg may be entertained simply by her performance. Other viewers may the story extremely repetitive by the second hour, with a central relationship that's underdeveloped. The pleasant scenery and humor don't often make up for the lack of dramatic tension.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
A lesson in short-term benefit vs. long-term detriment, courtesy of screenwriters Ron Bass and Terry McMillan: in adapting McMillan's novel How Stella Got Her Groove Back, the pair make a decision which gives the first half of the film a real kick, then kicks the second half into oblivion. To the story of a middle-aged woman's second-chance romance on a Jamaican holiday, they add Whoopi Goldberg as Stella's funky-sassy-Miss-Thang best pal. Adding Goldberg certainly adds spice to the first half, but it makes the Whoopi-less second half look even worse. The film quickly becomes a repetitive melodrama, finding little new to say about a relationship which doesn't really work on screen.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Stella, at age 40, seems to have it all: a great job as a high-powered, high-salaried stock broker, a beautiful home overlooking San Francisco, and a bright, loving young son. She is a dedicated single mother, and a devoted sister and friend.

But she's lost her groove.

For what seems like forever, Stella has forgotten to have fun ... to take chances. But Stella's vivacious friend, Delilah, has the antidote for Stella's rut - a vacation to the golden, sun-kissed beaches of Jamaica, where the over-worked, enjoyment-deprived Stella can forget about her job, her high-maintenance sisters and being the perfect mother. It's time, says Delilah, for something - someone - to rock Stella's world.

The lush surroundings eventually work their magic. Stella meets, and is immediately attracted to, a Jamaican named Winston. He's handsome, intelligent, sexy, attentive, charming - and crazy about Stella. What begins as a vacation fling begins to deepen. Stella is as captivated by this young man as he is of her. There's only one problem, and to her (and almost everyone around her) it's a big one:

He's only twenty years old.
