      I think that Angela Bassett did a good job of filling the role of Stella. After the hype of Waiting to Exhale died down, I was waiting for the next Terry


      McMillan treat.

      This movie deviated a little from the novel.

      In the movie, Whoopi Goldberg portrays Stella’s friend.

      And although this part of the storyline is different than in the book, I feel that it works very well.

      Whoopi Goldberg ...


      • was a delightful addition to the movie.

        I think that if not for her character, the friendship between Stella and Delilah would not have been believable.

        Because I read the book, I was actually expecting an actor that looked more like Tyson Beckford,

        to play Winston.

        But because Taye Diggs is a good actor, I think he did a great job of convincing audiences that he was Jamaican.

        The story is actually very sweet.

        And even though the real Terry McMillan discovered that her husband was gay—I still love this “feel-good” film.
