Amazing, the movie is spectacular and Hayden Panettiere is amazing!!!

Great Movie

Don't listen to the critics. This is a good movie and worth watching. It may seem a little over-sentimental to some, but it tells a good story. Kate Hudson's character finds herself the guardians of her sister's children after her sister and brother-in-law are killed in a car accident. She's obviously not mature enough to handle the new situation but with help from a Lutheran Pastor and her surviving sister she begins to make some headway. The movie doesn't show everything as sweet as apple pie. The kids do rebel at times, especially the older daughter.
You have to watch it to the end, especially when Joan Cusack's character allows Kate Hudson to read a letter. Best part of the movie.
I'd recommend this to anybody.

Amazing movie

This is always been my personal Kate Hudson movie of all time because I can totally relate to kate's character of Helen Harris ever since I have an
Funny avid niece Vivian faye and
An adorable baby nephew William
Anton Also known as Willie but that's just my nickname for him and of course Vivian's nickname is vivi
But enough about my niece and nephew this is just my review on
Raising Helen and how Abigail
Breslin is the role model for my
Sweet little niece Vivian Faye
But in the future she's not going
To grow up and be like Hayden
Panettiere's character of Audrey
Harris from this movie but she'll
Be just as sweet as Hayden is
In real life and that's my review
