  • A deeply touching human story filled with humor and heartbreak is rare in any movie season, especially summer. That's what makes The Help an exhilarating gift. show more

  • Instead of plunging us into a racist past, however, The Help takes us on a pop-cultural tour that savors the picturesque, and strengthens stereotypes it purports to shatter. show more

  • Like its characters, it has its faults. But overall, it is a movie of imaginative sympathy that gets into the skin of its characters, into their hearts, and, ultimately, into ours. show more

    This movie is ok. It doesn\'t deserve an OSCAR, but is good to see.

    Unbelievable movie about the social dynamics of that period of time. And quite a statement about the ability of a group of people to get together and make a statement. If I had a daughter, I would want her to see this film!
