If the intent of most summer movies is to rouse oohs, aahs and various other sound effects from their audiences, then "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" more than fulfills its mandate. Nothing blows up--not literally, anyway--in this adaptation of Terry McMillan's best-selling novel about a 40-year-old African American stockbroker and single mom (Angela Bassett) who travels to Jamaica on a whim and finds passionate love in the form of a 20-year-old islander, Winston (newcomer Taye Diggs).
