Overview

Actor/director Forest Whitaker Waiting to Exhale helmed this romantic drama about a one-time high-school beauty queen who returns to her hometown of Smithville, TX. The Steven Rogers screenplay begins in Chicago, where blonde Connie Rosanna Arquette, uncredited appears on a trashy daytime talk show and tells a nationwide TV audience about her affair with the husband of her best friend, Birdie Pruitt Sandra Bullock. Walking into the ambush, Birdie is paraded forth for a public humiliation as Connie's claim is confirmed by husband Bill Michael Paré. Birdie and her young daughter, Bernice Mae Whitman, then move back to Texas to live with Birdie's eccentric mother, Ramona Gena Rowlands, a taxidermist who has filled the house with stuffed animals. Since most of Smithville saw the TV show, embarrassment keeps Birdie sitting around the house in her pajamas; however, her moment of glory as the homecoming "Queen of Corn" has not been forgotten by handyman Justin Matisse Harry Connick Jr., the first guy who kissed her back in high school, so a romance soon begins. "Just give hope a chance to float up and it will," says Birdie.

    Birdie learns on a TV talk show that her husband has been sleepi

    Birdie learns on a TV talk show that her husband has been sleeping with her best friend. She packs up her car and drives to her mother’s home in Texas. Her mother still lives in the same house as Birdie grew up. She talks to many people from her past as she tries to figure out her future.


    This is a story of how some people will do anything to make other happy, when all it does is make everyone miserable. While it does show the dangers of being a people pleaser and trying to be someone you’re not; some will find it hard to see this message past the character of Justin attempting to date a married woman.

    A good Curl up in a blanket Movie

    This is a wonderful rainy day, curl up in a blanket and watch movies, movie. Sandra Bullock is wonderful, Mae Whitman (Bernice) is charming, and Gena Rowlands (Momma) is unique. Then who wouldn't mind looking at Harry Connick, Jr. (Justin)either???? The soundtrack is great. I loved everything about this movie.

    Realistic and honest

    One of my favorite films. Is it sensitive? Yes. Is it female-centric? Absolutely. Sandra Bullock delivers an honest performance of a woman betrayed and trying to heal. Gena Rowlands is charming as her eccentric mother and Mae Whitman does a fantastic job as a daughter who, although sometimes petulant, is fragile and as heartbroken as her newly-separated mom.

    funny, romantic and entertaining

    We loved this movie. It was funny, clever and romantic. Harry Connick is charming, adorable and very endearing as ''Birdie's'' (Sandra Bullock) love interest. Sandra Bullock's character goes through a lot of the same things many of us face after a lost love, including the painful humiliation of going home to a small town where everyone knows your business. Gena Rollands is brilliant as Birdie's ecentric, but wise mother.
