I actually liked watching this movie.
I used to always hear people talk about this movie but I had never actually watched it before. How Stella got her groove back was through a young guy who loved her despite their age difference bug on some level she was not matured enough or ready to handle the relationship.
The natural beauty of Jamaica is undeniable. Sun kissed beaches, clear blue seas and a load of other gorgeous clichés. If you're going to stick to the protective confines of one of the resorts such as the one seen in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, chances are you'll come home okay. However if you step one flip flop out of the designated safe zone, do so with extreme caution. Jamaica has one of the highest crime and murder rates in the world - most happening, not surprisingly, in built up areas such as Stella's Montego Bay.
