Stella's groove, like the film itself, doesn't run deep.

Rolling Stone

May 11, 2001

Delivers guilt-free escapism about pretty people having wicked-hot fun in pretty places.

This fine and funny film proves that a love that nurtures fills an emptiness that nothing else can fill.

January 01, 2000

The issues that arise from such a May/September male/female pairing are sensitively and intelligently explored.

Boxoffice Magazine

June 05, 2002

There is insufficient chemistry, more tension and fighting than romance, and no epiphanal moment to demonstrate that Stella has indeed gotten her groove back.

The "Groove" is on the move in Sullivan's ethnically snappy and exotic May-December romancer. Bassett and Diggs make for a sizzling couple

The movie meanders on and on, like a bad sexual dream, until you finally wake up mumbling: Stella, please: leave that groove thang alone.

All formula gloss, a romance that tackles some difficult issues by missing them altogether.

Gives Angela Bassett the full star treatment, and she gives it right back.

Stella may be frothy and paper-thin, but it's also another great success for star Angela Bassett, who transforms the film into an infomercial for her considerable abilities.

There's only one thing missing from this story, and it's the main ingredient: conflict.

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.
