Tagline: Mothers. Daughters. The never-ending story of good vs. evil.

Plot: Sidda Lee Walker (Sandra Bullock), a prominent young playwright living in New York Dity, is a long way from her Louisiana hometown and a nice safe distance from her loving but highly dramatic and eccentric mother, Vivi (Ellen Burstyn). And that's the way she'd like to keep it.

When a Time Magazine profile on Sidda implies that Vivi was not a good mother, Vivi is outraged and the two women get into a fight that threatens to destroy not only their relationship but Sidda's tenuous wedding plans with a man who has waited seven years from her to get over her fear of raising a family of her own.

Enter the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (Finnula Flanagan, Shirley Knight, Maggie Smiht)... Vivi's intrepid gang of lifelong friends, eager to restore peace no matter what it takes.

To truly understand Vivi, the Ya-Yas believe, Sidda must know who her mother was as a young woman. A high-spirited beauty who valued love and loyalty above all else, young Vivi (portrayed by Ashley Judd) was dealt many disappointments in life but was also blessed with an indomitable sense of humor, an adventurous spirit and three best friends. Together, this inseparable foursome shared both good and bad times with grace and humor, celebrating each other's triumphs for more than 40 years, which they recorded in a scrapbook
