    I went to Negril – Hedonism and read the book, “Stella Gets her Groove Back”, while I was there in 1998. Everyone at the resort called me Stella. I was 38 workaholic met a Fireman 22. I got my groove back. Came back after vacation and was layed off. Yep I was Stella.

    I found this to be one of the exceptions when I liked the movie much better than the book. No stream-of-consciousness narration intention (which is fine) that actually ended up being headache-inducing run-on sentences that lasted up to a page at a time. No constant dropping of product names or then-current songs (Stella Payne had awfully mainstream musical tastes for someone who furnished her house with innovative juxtaposition of colors and fabrics and even designed some furniture). No obsessing over feminine hygiene, or judgmental rants about stinky Rastas and ugly tourists or anyone who didn't happen to have a slim taut physique. No holing up in an all-inclusive for days except for a couple of trips to Rick's Cafe (that's a vacation. That's not travel.) It didn't hurt that Angela Bassett did well as Bernadine in 'Waiting To Exhale', because she was easily cast in a second McMillan adaptation and was just as suited for Stella's assertive corporate-career role. She gave off her suit-of-armor-over-a-bruised-heart vibe quite convincingly. A lot of reviewers had little to say about Taye Diggs except "Oooh" "Yum" "Sigh…", whereas the book's Winston was very handsome yet skinny and not overly muscular. (And this was often emphasized, so I was a little disappointed in seeing Winston played by an actor with a calendar-guy physique.) But that's about it. I had returned from my 4th and last Reggae Sunsplash shortly before reading the book. Even though I traveled there alone for the festival and I stayed in all-inclusives each time, I did some excursion tours and went into the mountains to Nine Miles in St. Ann each time. So I was looking forward to imagery of Jamaica's natural beauty and maybe the contrasts between fancy high-rise resorts and the far more humble buildings in their shadows. Forget it. Book-Stella's eyes were usually closed to everything in Jamaica but other people's looks and clothing and- to be fair- the gorgeous tropical sea. She did an inadequate job of describing everything her eyes did take in. But as I recall, the movie mostly made up for that. I'll probably see it again soon; it's been nearly 20 years.

    My therapist told me to watch this movie this weekend because I went to Jamaica last week and started a romance similar to this. He's 22 and I'm 31. She told me to watch this movie because I am tripping out over our age difference, but we clique really well though. I'm going back to see him next month. Wish me luck!
