niceBy a customer from London , 21 Oct 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm not sure what I expected from this, but I was dissapointed in the movie. It's a similar vain to How To Make An American Quilt, but just not as good.
It's a story about a mother and daughter that don't get on and the mothers crazy friends who are stupidly part of a 'ya ya' siterhood try to bring them together. It all centers around a secret past the mother has and the story drags until the ending when you are finally told what this is...I felt a little betrayed.
Although there are some really nice parts to this film and some really funny parts, there just wasn't enough of anything to keep me amused for so long.

Divinely Entertaining!By Shelley21 (25 reviews) from Wimborne, Dorset , 13 Aug 2009A stellar cast and a touching story make this an extremely easy film to watch and connect with the characters.
Told in flash backs to their younger, wilder days. The story focuses on four friends bound to each other by love, devotion and the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, a childish game of solidarity that continued throughout their lives and helped preserve their dearest memories and darkest secrets.
A truly enjoyable film!

PredictableBy a customer from East Grinstead , 24 Jul 2009could have been better with such a good cast.
A good filmBy a customer from Bromley , 19 Jul 2009This was the third time I've seen this film - its one of those that you can keep coming back to. the mix of older and yonger stars, moving backwards and forward through stories keep you on your toes. I lovely film.
Disappointing overallBy a customer from Reading , 23 Jun 2009I was looking forward to seeing the DVD having had read the book but it was the same old story - much had been edited out which left the film looking a bit thin. Some of the deleted scenes should have been left in to make more sense of the story. I thought the casting was spot on and the music evocotive but I was disappointed overall. I would really recommend the book if you have just watched the DVD and enjoyed it.
