Fresh: Perry benefits from the fire, heft, velocity, and lyricism of the language, but he also updates the material and makes it work onscreen, eliciting powerhouse performances from an ensemble of actresses.

I kinda hate Tyler Perry but I did kinda enjoy this movie. I thought it mostly pretty well acted but Janet Jackson's character could have been cast better. A harsher watch than I expected but it was mostly pretty well written and relateable.

Tragic, terrifying and beautifully poetic. For Colored Girls? is a poetically woven tragedy about the trials and struggles of black women. The movie is based on Ntozake Shange's play "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf." Janet Jackson, Anika Noni Rose, Whoopi Goldberg, Kimberly Elise, Loretta Devine, Thandie Newton, Phylicia Rashad and the entire cast give remarkable emotionally powerful and moving performances. This movie will rub some people the wrong way. It is different in style and approach, and very graphic, blatant and shocking. Yes a lot happens and yes there is a deliberate urgency here and I say, so what? What better time for deliberate urgency then when the subject is so relevant?
