Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002) as Pawn Broker
Sidda Lee Walker, a prominent young playwright living in New York City, is a long way from her Louisiana hometown and a safe distance from her loving but highly dramatic and eccentric mother, Vivi. And that's the way she'd like to keep it. But 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 for her to get over her fear of raising a family of her own. Enter the Ya-Ya Sisterhood... 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 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, celebrating each other's triumphs for more than 40 years, which they recorded in a scrapbook, known as the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Taking matters into their own hands, the Ya-Yas stage an unorthodox intervention to bring mother and daughter back together. With their help and the help of the Divine Secrets, Sidda will begin to unravel the truth about her complicated and unconventional mother, find forgiveness and acceptance, and let go of her painful past.

Dating has never been easy. The time-honored search for a soul mate has always been one part humiliation, two parts aggravation, and a little blind luck thrown in for the fortunate. Today's version of the game can be a blur of websites, speed lunches and hordes of friends and relatives who know just the "right" person for you. Thirty-something preschool teacher Sarah Nolan has been divorced for eight months, which is much too long for her family to bear. With the best intentions and only her happiness in mind, they stage an intervention in an all-out effort to get her out of pajamas and back into the dating scene, one way or another. Leading the charge are Sarah's sisters, Carol and Christine, eager to line up potential suitors, and their widowed father Bill, who sets a fine example with his own recent and very successful foray into the internet dating realm. Bill has lately been seeing the free-spirited Dolly, whom he met online, along with a number of other ladies whose names his daughters can't quite keep track of. Eager to launch their sister's own cyber-dating debut, Carol and Christine pretend to be Sarah and post her profile on perfectmatch.com, with the enticing message, "Voluptuous, sensuous, alluring and fun. DWF seeks special man to share starlit nights. Must love dogs." And wait for the responses to pour in. Sarah soon endures a series of hilariously disastrous mismatches and first dates as the website offers up a stream of eager wannabes and one possible maybe--awkward but intriguing boat builder Jake Anderson, an idealist who measures romance by a Dr. Zhivago standard. A little on the intense side, Jake might be looking for more than Sarah wants right now. Meanwhile, at work, there's a new distraction--Bob Connor, the newly separated dad of one of her young students. Charming and relaxed, Bob seems made to order, the perfect guy--but is he just too good to be true?
