For me this is THE Whoopi film. Yep, it tops The Color Purple and Jumping Jack Flash, and most certainly Theodore Rex and even the sequel (which is not just a Whoopi film but a Lauryn Hill film too hence it's in a different league) when it comes to entertainment value and cockle-warming. Support comes in spades from Najimy, Makkena and our own Maggie. As for the soundtrack, it's the cream of the crop! They really REALLY don't make them like they used to. But please, Hollywood, don't remake it!
