4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing family film, 5 Mar 2014
This review is from: Raising Helen [DVD] (DVD)
Helen (Kate Hudson) stars as a 20-something career girl who suddenly finds herself having to house - and raise - three children, one of them a hormonal 15-year-old girl. For a romantic comedy, it starts in rather a dramatic way and has a thread of tragedy running through it; and yet overall it's an encouraging story with quite a message of hope.

It's not laugh-aloud funny, although there are plenty of light-hearted moments. It's not a passionate romance - instead, a very low-key developing friendship, with, unusually, nobody leaping into bed after the first kiss. The language is clean, there's plenty of love and understanding, and there's even a pastor who is neither elderly nor a dork.

I wouldn't rate this amongst my absolute favourites, but we enjoyed it very much.
