Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "The Help" takes us on a pop-cultural tour that savors the picturesque, and strengthens stereotypes it purports to shatter.
Fresh: As hard to dislike as it is to truly admire, this artfully manipulative issue movie knows where its strengths lie... and most of them lie in Viola Davis.
Fresh: There are some magnificent elements here... The downside is the mawkishness and the rambling narrative structure.
Fresh: It tackles a challenging, inflammatory subject in the corniest, safest way possible.
This movie was great. Superb performances and is now one of my favorites ! Do watch , all fingers up
Could have been a little darker. Kept true to the book nicely. Emotional with amazing acting, worth watching.
