Critic Reviews of "How Stella Got Her Groove Back"Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
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 StoneMay 11, 2001
Delivers guilt-free escapism about pretty people having wicked-hot fun in pretty places.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 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 NewsJanuary 01, 2000
All formula gloss, a romance that tackles some difficult issues by missing them altogether.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 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.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
The issues that arise from such a May/September male/female pairing are sensitively and intelligently explored.TheWorldJournal.comJune 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 coupleFilm Quips OnlineFebruary 08, 2003
There's only one thing missing from this story, and it's the main ingredient: conflict.Cincinnati EnquirerOctober 15, 2002
Gives Angela Bassett the full star treatment, and she gives it right back.Boxoffice MagazineJune 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 SoundMarch 05, 2002
Stella's groove, like the film itself, doesn't run deep.Spirituality and PracticeMarch 02, 2002
This fine and funny film proves that a love that nurtures fills an emptiness that nothing else can fill.
