  Serious chick flick. Some shortchanged secondary characters hamper "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," but it's so unabashedly manipulative, it may reduce macho men to weeping. Director Callie Khouri's adaptation of two interrelated best-sellers by Rebecca Wells introduces successful playwright Sidda Lee Walker (Sandra Bullock), who has used her contentious relationship with her mother, Vivi, as the crux of a new play. Mama (Ellen Burstyn), a Southern hell's-belle, is infuriated; her lifelong friends (Maggie Smith, Fionnula Flanagan, Shirley Knight) intervene to repair the broken mother-daughter connection and mollify the Walkers' long-suffering men (James Garner, Angus Macfadyen). Which leads us to decades-spanning flashbacks about how vivacious young Vivi (Ashley Judd, in her best role since "Ruby in Paradise") got to be such a pill. The whole she-bang is dominated by top actresses going slightly overboard with the emotional weight and brittle humor of the colorful lives on display.
