Embittered meanies (a.k.a. critics) can cavil all they want about this movie’s superficiality — it won’t stop an army of women from landing in video stores on release day. That’s because How Stella Got Her Groove Back offers something more potent than depth: monumental wish fulfillment, not to mention as many chic costume changes as a Saks window. Thus 40-year-old divorcée Stella (the ravishing Angela Bassett) sweeps off to a deluxe Jamaican resort with an eccentric pal (Whoopi Goldberg) and meets a native with the body of a god. Only problem: He’s half her age. But good sex and clothing can conquer all, even yakky scripts. And though Stella learns that money can’t buy happiness, it helps when you want to get to the beach and look your best.C+
