The Help review


One of the most anticipated books turned films to be released this summer is Dreamworks The Help. I've been one of thousands of people that have been patiently waiting. So when I was given the opportunity to attend a screening last week, I cleared my schedule to make sure I could make it.
Now I must honestly admit that I haven't finished reading the book (gasp), but I do intend to. So going into the movie I had a brief synopsis of what it was about and what I expected. I can say that this movie lived up to all my expectations. It was an AWESOME movie! I never cry. I didn't cry watching Titanic, nor the Notebook but for this I did. My eyes welled up but it could have also been from all the laughing I did too. This film was hilarious even though it dealt with serious issues of our times. This story teaches you about the powerful relationships between women. The Help will make you realize how important it is to treat those around you with equal respect and love, no matter what. We are all the same.
I really suggest you grab your spouse or group of girls and head out to the theaters this weekend to catch this movie. Even if you haven't read the book, this story will touch your heart and have you appreciate those around you even more.

Thank you for the review. Sometimes we see movie advertisements but they don't automatically grab our attention. I personally am a big fan of movies like The Help. Reading your review just made me much more interested in seeing the movie..

I have been seeing this book and the movie ads alot lately. I sure hope that they both are as good as everyone is saying. I hate it when a movie does not follow the book and ruins it! I am a new follower of your blog thru GFC, Facebook and Twitter. I would really appreciate a follow back on all three when you get a chance. Thanks so very much and have a great day!
