"I can watch this movie all day long.. this movie reminds me so much of my family when i was coming up the sunday dinners, just being around each other , the sibling riviarly i can most defintely relate to.. this a breath of fresh air from the normal hood type movies.. yes that is a part of life but it just a portion of life .. Good to see us as african american people seein an another light .. Hats off to Producers, Directors, Writers .. Love the soundtrack also !"
Great insight into the joys and complications of family life | 06/11/2001

"The family in this movie is head by "Big Mama" (don't even think about the recent Martin Lawrence farce "Big Momma's House"), a larger than life weathered woman who keeps the family going with her straight-shooting wisdom and hearty Sunday dinners. Vanessa Williams, who plays the oldest sister, is a wealthy attorney who constantly annoys her two sisters with her snobbery. She is involved in a crumbling marriage, which eventually turns adulterous. Vivica Fox plays the middle sister, a woman who is a devoted wife and mother. Nia Long plays the youngest sister, a newlywed to a small-time crook. Big Mama's death sends the family into a tailspin, all of a sudden the glue holding the sisters together is gone, and they have to laugh, cry, love, and fight their way into finding out how to hold it together themselves. Touching and so true."
Food for the soul and the eyes.....good movie!

"This movie is something everyone can relate to in some way no matter what race you are. Watching this reminded me of my own family. The three sisters also reminded me of my family. The rich child, child with kids and the young one who still is coming up. The grandson reminded me of myself when I was younger. This movie is about the ups and downs of life and how a family sticks together no matter what hard times come around. It shows how one person(the grandmother) had such a strong power over everybody by keeping them together. I guess the big dinners was all part of it because thats when everyone used to get together. Buying this will not leave you in doubt about wasting your money because the story is tight from beginning to end. So far this is the best movie (and soundtrack) to drop from babyface. If your not me when I say this is something u just want to have if you like collecting movies and even if you don't.get it!"
