Forest Whitaker's adaptation of Terry McMillan's Waiting to Exhale comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, and a French soundtrack has also been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. The film looks and sounds great, although 20th Century Fox could have done more with the extras on this release.

Love the movie really felt what a black women goes through!
RockieinLA More than 1 year ago
A story of four 'best girlfriends' living through what proves to be a life-changing year for all of them. This is a story EVERY woman can identify with. Who among us has never wanted to throw our Ex's things out into the street? Or find the courage to throw a drink in our guy's face? Or have one more romp with that Ex we never quite forgot? It's a story of their relationships: with their partners, good and bad, past and present; with themselves, now and then, before and after; but especially with their girlfriends who, for better or for worse, will always be there and will always tell them the truth, even when they don't want to hear it.

"Waiting To Exhale" is by far the best movie that women and men can relate to on relationships, friendships, and our instincts about life. Overall, outstanding material that we as black folks like to see.
