    How Stella Got Her Groove Back

    Unlucky-in-love stockbroker Stella (Angela Bassett) jets to Jamaica with her gal pal Delilah (Whoopi Goldberg) for some fun in the sun. There she meets sexy, good-looking Winston Shakespeare (Taye Diggs). He's the man of her dreams in every way except one, he's half her age.

    Globe and Mail

    The movie meanders on and on, like a bad sexual dream, until you finally wake up mumbling: Stella, please: leave that groove thang alone.

    Rolling Stone
    May 11, 2001

    Delivers guilt-free escapism about pretty people having wicked-hot fun in pretty places.

    Los Angeles Times
    February 14, 2001

    Stella may be frothy and paper-thin, but it's also another great success for star Angela Bassett, who transforms the film into an infomercial for her considerable abilities.

    Detroit News
    January 01, 2000

    All formula gloss, a romance that tackles some difficult issues by missing them altogether.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    January 01, 2000

    I'm not denying that a 40-year- old woman might be self-conscious about going around with someone this young. But the subject isn't interesting or provocative enough to sustain an entire movie.

    January 01, 2000

    The issues that arise from such a May/September male/female pairing are sensitively and intelligently explored.
    June 07, 2003

    The "Groove" is on the move in Sullivan's ethnically snappy and exotic May-December romancer. Bassett and Diggs make for a sizzling couple

    There's only one thing missing from this story, and it's the main ingredient: conflict.

    Cincinnati Enquirer
    October 15, 2002

    Gives Angela Bassett the full star treatment, and she gives it right back.

    Boxoffice Magazine
    June 05, 2002

    There is insufficient chemistry, more tension and fighting than romance, and no epiphanal moment to demonstrate that Stella has indeed gotten her groove back.

    Sight and Sound
    March 05, 2002

    Stella's groove, like the film itself, doesn't run deep.

    Spirituality and Practice
    March 02, 2002

    This fine and funny film proves that a love that nurtures fills an emptiness that nothing else can fill.
