Positively one of the best films Helen Hunt has made. It's honest, touching, and a lovely portrayal of a woman whose life has fallen apart and her real mother who gave her up for adoption who helps her through these times. The mother, expertly played by Bette Midler comes into her life when needed most. Midler is hilarious, full of life, and almost stalks her daughter into allowing her to part of

What on earth has happened to Helen Hunt? She looks emaciated and old in the face! She was never a beauty but now she is downright ugly.

The movie was directed by Helen Hunt. Why she kept herself as the main character star in this movie is beyond me. Helen Hunt looks too thin, masked any new creative interpretation of this main character while maintaining Helen Hunt's usual interpretation and style of acting. Bette Midler was refreshing as was Colin Firth. The story line was interesting but ruined by Helen Hunt's presence.

This could have been a very nice story line. However, the unnecessary use of the F-word made this movie extremely uncomfortable for me. The backseat seen also took away from the warm fuzzy feeling of Helen Hunt and Colin Firth's relationship. I have no desire to ever see it again.

Am I the only one that noticed the microphone throughout the entire movie. What was that about? How do u not see that in editing?

Suffers from, if anything, a lack of pure confidence in the story, the actors or the audience. Full Review

There's something about Hunt's put-upon persona that grates, and it would be nice to see her for once in a role that doesn't call on her to be so angry, short-tempered and disappointed all the time...Still, all in all, Then She Found Me is a warm, entertaining and well-made little movie and an auspicious debut for Hunt the director.

Hunt's movie-directing debut frequently crackles with nice gags. Full Review

There are some wise observations about parenting. Hunt draws some good performances from the cast and wisely chose a low-key personal story for her directorial debut. Full Review
James Berardinelli
This is the sort of movie that gives "chick flicks" a bad name. It's a cross between inept melodrama and a bad sit-com. Full Review
