About the Movie
Stella (Angela Bassett) is a highly successful, forty-something San Francisco stock broker who is persuaded by her colorful New York girlfriend Delilah (Whoopi Goldberg) to take a well deserved, first-class vacation to Jamaica. As she soaks in the beauty of the island, she encounters a strapping, young islander, Winston Shakespeare (Taye Diggs). His pursuits for her turn into a hot and steamy romance that forces Stella to take personal inventory of her life and try to find a balance between her desire for love and companionship, and the responsibilities of mother and corporate executive.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ms. Bassett portrays this high-strung superwoman with such intensity that she makes her almost believable.
Fresh: Delivers guilt-free escapism about pretty people having wicked-hot fun in pretty places.
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: I never felt Stella and Winston were on the same wavelength, that they could share their lives, that it would be a good idea for them to try.
Where's the soundtrack! Get on your job review board or get fired! "lol" Maxi Priest 'Art of Seduction' as the rest of the sound iz amazing. Get it done.
This was good movie but where is the soundtrack? Some pretty good songs I'd like to download. Matter of fact not a lot of urban hip hop soundtracks on this site at all. Brown Sugar is another one.
Where's the soundtrack?
Great movie, one of my all time favorites, but where is the soundtrack? I want that song by Mary J. Blige called "Beautiful"!
