Movie Reviews

(2 out of 5 stars)

"Certainly, this film is excellent. However, the version sold here is incomplete. Several key scenes are missing including Cora and her children at _Midsummer Night's Dream_ and the infamous meatloaf scene. One of the only drawbacks of our new virtual world is that you must buy something and open it before you find out it's not what you wanted. There are two versions sold here; I bought the more expensive one, thinking it would be more comprehensive. Buy the cheaper one! You can't miss more than I've missed."
Now you done made me mad

"I remember watching this made for TV movie a few years ago. However I was disappointed with the DVD. You can actually see where it was sliced and diced.
Some parts in particular: Oprah finds Ms. Eva to be "asleep" after Ms. Eva did not pick up the kids after school. Oprah returns to the house with the kids. She calls out Ms. Eva name several times. Once Oprah touches her, she realizes that Ms. Eva has passed.
Then there were obvious cuts where there was nothing but a blank screen. Another cut scene: Basil was in jail and Oprah came to visit. "Basil don't you want to sit and talk for a spell? No mama, unless you came to bail me out I have nothing to say", or something to that effect.
This was a hard to find DVD and I was thoroughly disappointed by it. It would have been nice to view the movie in its entirety but I didn't get that."
If you can't do right leave it alone!

"What a botched up job!!!!!! I really think the producers of this DVD were on drugs when they edited out hours of this black female saga. This is a beautiful story and it has the right to be delivered in it all its splendor and glory. What a horrible job. I can't say enough about the hack job that has been done to this classic."
I got Shafted!!!!

"When this movie came on T.V. many years ago, I recorded it, edited out the commercials and everything. So when it finally was released on D.V.D. I jumped at the chance to have a better quality version.

I even gave my V.H.S. copy to my mother. Man, was I ever disappointed, the movie is missing critical scenes. Too many to even describe in this review!! I thought because [...] that that was the problem, but after reading so many other reviews that basically are saying the same thing, I can see I wasn't the only one who got shafted.
And to make things worse, my mother won't give me the V.H.S. version back!!!"
