There is one scene in "The Divine Scerets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" in which they perform that ritual around the table in which I liked. But that all I got out that movie.

We meet four old women who only task is the shout and pound their cell phones against the table. Sandra Bullock played the daughter of one of the sisters who made a play based on the life of the Ya-Ya sisterhood. The sisters kidnapped her and forced her to re-live their past and heal her bad relationship with her mother, which won't be easy for either them or the audience.

Two of the four members of the sisterhood are played by Ellen Burstyn (still beautiful at age 70) and Maggie Smith, whom they played better roles in the past. Ashley Judd played the young Burstyn who addiction to pills may have been the cause for their sour relationship with her daughter. But the film never offered anything new.

I've watched this film very closely to see if there's anything special about the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and I couldn't find any. The relationship between Bullock and Burstyn isn't as intense like the relationship between Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger in the 1983 film "Terms of Endearment."

Filled with starts of the past and present, this film explores the relationship between mother and daughter. The mother’s friends, who belong to that sisterhood, help the young woman understand her mother’s life. Men, of course, are tolerated if they are extremely sensitive (one wonders what James Garner is doing here).

Mostly it’s a woman’s film. It is funny, but the final realizations is sort of a ho-hum.
