4.0 out of 5 stars Feel good movie Oct. 14 2004
By A Customer
This is a great feel-good movie. Helen, a young, single, successful woman working at a modeling agency in New York, finds herself playing "mom" when her sister dies leaving Helen in charge of the three children. Helen moves to Queens and several changes occurr in her life. She meets "Pastor Dan" and the two become involved. After a crisis - of course - Helen must decide if she wants her old life back or this new one.
It is just a great feel good movie. Kate Hudson is just magical. I did not like the choice of Joan Cousack as the third sister... the two women were just two disparate in looks to be plausible as sisters.
A nice movie to watch again and again.
The DVD has a couple of deleted scenes and some commentary, but nothing that is crucial to the enjoyment of the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raising Helen April 4 2008
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Helen finds herself in a situation she is not familiar with. After her sister's death, she is given custody of the three children. She has always been the party girl, but now she in the position of being a mom, and has no idea how to do it. This is a good film that touches on many issues. How to deal with loss, and how to raise children being at the forefront. Kate Hudson was well chosen to play Helen. You really get the feeling that she was completely out of her element being an authority figure with the kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raising Helen- A Great Movie for the Whole Family Nov. 15 2004
By C. MacIntosh - Published on Amazon.com
Raising Helen is a heartwarming story of an aunt learning how to raise her sister's three children. Starring Kate Hudson, Felicity Hoffman and Sean O'Brian, this will be a movie the whole family will enjoy.

After the unexpected death of her sister and brother in law, Helen Harris (Kate Hudson) finds out that she is now the primary caregiver for her sister's three children. But along with her job, fifteen year old Audrey, ten year old Henry and five year old Sarah are quite a handful. This comes as shocking news and trying to balance her job at a modeling agency and her hot nightlife is more than she can handle. Her other sister, Jenny, an already devoted mother, is unhappy that her sister, Lindsey, didn't leave her with the responsibility of raising her kids. She knows that Helen is not ready for the responsibility of being a mother. She has to help Helen learn the responsibilities of being a mom.

Despite some moments with a defiant teen and some mild profanities, this movie is a romantic comedy and demonstrates how a "family" can include more than just the people who share your genetics. Raising Helen is a heartwarming movie recommended for the whole family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected Aug. 28 2005
By K. Stuckey - Published on Amazon.com
A tip: watch Raising Helen the first time by yourself. I bawled at several points during this movie and that surprised me because I usually don't do that. I like how Kate Hudson's Helen grows up during the movie, at first she is career-oriented and likes to party, but she ends up settled at the end. The two younger kids in this movie are adorable and the oldest would cause any parent anxiety. Joan Cusack and John Corbett turn in awesome performances as well, Joan with her trademark subtle humor and John as the sexy pastor of the kids school. One of the funniest parts is the Inter-Faith hockey league (whoever came up with the names was very clever) and Helen's neighbor in Queens (and her baseball bat). All of the characters are well-written and the story really is touching, I felt a connection to all of the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars ~Raising Helen~ Feb. 23 2005
By American CowGirl - Published on Amazon.com
This is a VERY sweet movie about a girl who is very into her own life, and enjoys not really growing up. She was like the best aunt, she loved her family, and they loved her! But when a tragic accident occurs, she is left with her sisters 3 kids. She has to learn what is important in life, what matters most, how to be a mom, and how to live with 3 other kids, one that likes the bathroom as much as she does! Its a very sweet, heart-warming movie that anyone can enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars The hardest thing of all Jan. 22 2008
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Parenthood. An adoptive parent once told me that biological parents have 9 months to prepare for a child, often longer. Adoptive parents can hope, but nothing's a done deal til the child arrives.

It's got to be even worse for people who inherit their kids from a family member.

Helen (Katie Holmes) was the go-to girl at her modeling agency if you wanted a model placed at a popular club or a table at a fabulous restaurant. She had it all--a glamorous life in New York City, a great apartment, a fab job--and she was even dating a Ralph Lauren underwear model.

That is, until her sister died and left her three children with her. Helen did have a choice. She could cede the kids to her older sister, Jenny (Joan Cusack) who'd raised her after their mother died. But her sister chose her first so she had to try.

"Raising Helen's" a family friendly comedy about grief and reshaping your family. Mostly the show was typical Gary Marshall fare, which isn't bad, it just may not be to everyone's taste. This film was a rental for me and probably a one-time view.
