4.0 out of 5 stars BEST CHICK FLICK I'VE EVER SEEN! 6 Jun 2004
By K. Jump - Published on
Like most red-blooded American males, this reviewer doesn't usually go for this kind of show, but I thought it was one my wife would really enjoy so I took her out to see it. To my utmost surprise, "Raising Helen" was a hit with both of us and one I can readily recommend to any prospective watcher.
"Raising Helen" is the story of a carefree New York fashion agent played perfectly by Kate Hudson whose life is turned upside down when her sister and brother-in-law are tragically killed in a car accident, leaving behind three stunned children in need of a parent. Helen expects the children to go to her big sister Jenny, Supermom, but to everyone's shock the will makes the inexperienced and flighty Helen the kids' guardian. Totally unprepared, Helen must learn what it takes to be a mom in a hurry--and ultimately if it's all really even worth it.
Three-fifths light family fare and two-fifths bittersweet drama, "Raising Helen" is a touching, funny, and poignant portrayal of maturation and self-discovery. Hudson is perfectly cast and shines throughout, and John Corbett is likewise excellent as a fully-realized pastor at the kids' school whose unexpected attentions throw yet another monkey wrench--ableit a positive one--into Helen's spinning world. Combining romance, comedy, and drama in a suprisingly effective mix, "Raising Helen" is worth seeing at least once by anybody. Go see it and remember how important love and family are to your own life!

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!! (My rating for this movie is actually 3 1/2 stars) 18 May 2004
By moviefreak2255 - Published on
This movie was far above my expectations. This story surrounds Helen (Kate Hudson) who works at a modeling agency. Everything is going well for her until she finds out her sister and her husband died in a car crash and they left in their will custody of their three children to Helen. Helen first thinks this is absurd because her older sister has children and is more mother like than she, but she ends up taking them in. She learns how to be a mom and things go wrong. She has never had to take care of kids ever. Kate Hudson does another fantastic performance. She fits the part perfectly. When I went in to see this movie, I knew it was going to be sad, but not so sad. I almost cried. I think everyone should go see this movie, especially moms. It has a few inappropriate parts, but not very bad at all. It just has some issues about growing up. This movie was excellent!! I am so impressed. Go see it everyone!!

4.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT ... LOVED IT ... LOVED IT! 10 May 2004
By Ashton Baker - Published on
You know, I thought it was just perfect timing that they gave us a sneak preview on Mothers day, and being that my mother and I aren't very close (In fact, I didn't even see her today) It definately filled the void. Kate Hudson radiates the screen with yet another dazzling performance. She is so fluid in everything she does, I always anticipate seeing what she has done next. The story line was really inspiring, and the cast was great. I have been awaiting to see something new from John Corbett since him (Aidan) and Carrie broke up in Sex And The City. But, for future references, anyone who wants to see it, it truly is a great movie of which I think will appeal to all different types of audiences! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything a movie needs... 31 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Bring the tissues, even if you think you can tough it out. Then be ready to laugh through your sniffles. If you liked Return To Me, you'll like this one, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laughed so hard I cried! 30 May 2004
By Michelle - Published on
I didn't really know what this movie was about before my husband and I went out with some friends to watch it tonight so I had no expectations. I was delighted to be laughing hysterically at the lines here and there! I think because I am a teacher and have a "mom-like" personality, I found it especially funny.
Yes, some parts are cheesy, but it's a wonderful, heart-warming film that will entertain you. It will definitely put a smile on your face! My cheeks still feel sore from smiling and laughing so much!
