  • 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

  • Good story, great characters, a setting plucked from history - and a multiracial, multigenerational ensemble cast stacked with fabulous actresses. But the thing that makes The Help such a rousing crowd-pleaser is its generous helping of baked goods. show more

  • The Help sidesteps easy sentimentality. As the film's heart and soul, Davis and Spencer add vast reserves of depth and dignity to a crowd-pleasing tale. 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!
