Everybody's a critic - 'Ya-Ya Sisterhood'

HHH 1/2

The "Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood" is about life, love, family, lifelong friendship and a dark secret.

I was a little confused in the beginning and felt as if I needed a play book to keep the characters straight but that feeling didn't last. The "Ya Ya Sisterhood" was a club started by four young girlfriends. The club and the friendships withstood the test of time. One of those friends had a well-kept secret. This Southern comedy drama held its secret to the very end.

Although there are many funny scenes, there are no frivolous ones. Every scene moves the audience closer to the revelation of the secret but gives just the right hints to move you in other directions. This director does an excellent job of "moving" the movie along to a conclusion that left me saying (to myself), "So that's the secret!"
