Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett star in this funny and touching film about four women who find strength through their rare and special relationship. Savannah, Bernadine, Robin and Gloria are all searching for the Real Thing: true love. Bernadine thought she had it, until her husband left her for another woman. Savannah and Robin are successful in business but their love lives are bankrupt. And divorcee Gloria is getting back in the game by flirting with her new, very eligible neighbor. Based on Terry McMillan's best-selling novel, and featuring the #1 smash hit "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)," "Waiting to Exhale" is the film you and your friends have been waiting for!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Whitaker clumsily mishandles what should be a 'you go, girl!' tour de force.
Fresh: A pleasant if undemanding piece of work that is diverting to sit through though it won't stand up to any kind of rigorous examination.
Rotten: The male-bashing taken to an extreme in Waiting to Exhale is starting to seem a little like crack for the female psyche, exhilarating in the short term but ultimately crippling and dangerous.
Rotten: You want the movie to stomp and rejoice and cry like a fool; instead it meanders and lollygags, occasionally flaring up, then sputtering again.
Best sister gurl movie!
One of my favorite movies for bonding amongst black women. I've seen it so many times and I still cry. And now that Whitney is no longer with us I will shed even more tears. We love you Whitney may you rest with our heavenly father.
