fantastic movie!!! good from beginning to end. very funny and heartwarming look at life through the eyes of black servants in the south.
i really loved this movie. "the help" conducted themselves in a most dignified manner working for the most part for individuals who were not. an interesting look at our not too distant past. i did not see meryl streep in the iron lady, however, the performance by viola davis was magnificent. hard to believe meryl out-did that one.
this is an amazing movie! so great, i loved it.
beautiful movie!! viola davis is awesome in this movie!!!
What an excellent movie. At first I thought it was going to be boring but it just kept getting better and better. A definite must see !
While not as good as the book, the movie is echanting and emotional. A very good adaptation of a wonderful book.
Very engaging. I love period pieces and it was everything I hoped for. Perfect cast.
Loved this movie. i will watch it again
The best movie that I saw. great writing & acting.
It is a great movie and I can recomend you see it and I will watch it again
Great film with a twist of humour!!!
I am so glad I wasn't born in that era! Good acting!
excellent movie. well worth seeing
One of the best movies of the year.
a must own movie!
I really enjoyed this movie lots to learn!!
The book is better but still an enjoyable interpretation
This is the best movie I have seen this year. It is unforgettable. I have read the book, and sometimes that does injustice for a movie, but not this one. I think it should get alot of awards. awesome.
Loved the book! Movie was good too.
Great story told about being THE HELP. Moving and interesting to watch. I would recommend this.
I liked the movie. I found it funny and moving at the same time. I am sure that the majority of people have not idea what it was like to be a black maid during that era.
THE MOVIE WAS A GREAT PORTRAIT OF THE AMERICAN SOUTH. THE CHARACTERS WERE WONDERFUL AND ACTING WAS GREAT. YOUR EMOTIONS WERE TAKEN TO ALL LEVELS.
I loved it,great characters and plot ,not easily forgotten.
an amazing movie
If Viola Davis doesn't win an oscar for this there is no justice. Amazing ensemble. Bravo Cisily Tyson and Sissy Spacek!
I truly enjoyedvthis movie. Will definitely be adding this movie to my movie collection to watch over again
Possibly a new favourite of mine !
I have to give this a 5-star! Excellent movie, excellent script and excellent acting. In it's crude and sometimes hurtful ways this movie takes us on pop-cultural trip to visit the old ways. Very touching and heartfelt movie.
INCREDIABLE!!! Best movie i have seen in a long time!!! And i see 3-4 movies a week so that says something!!
Great movie - loved it
Well-meaning, but it reinforces unfortunate stereotypes, and oversimplifies complicated issues.
academy award material
It was an excellent movie! Very inspiring and gave you a little knowledge while being quite funny. I loved how the ending wasn't cliche but still great!
Oscar bound!!! Can't wait to buy this movie when it comes out on dvd. Great acting and an amazing story line!! Don't miss out!
you have to see this - great
good good movie
One film that I hope does not get overlooked at the upcoming oscars. It is by far one of the best films of the year and one not to be missed. For a fan of great film making, this one is for you.
I thought they kept true to the book for most of the movie. The actresses were well suited to their parts, and all in all the movie was very entertaining!
Awesome movie! Loved the story line, and Minny was unpredictable. I've highly recommended this movie to all my friends :)
story line and acting very very good...told the truth what happened in the 60's in the south and what blacks had to endure...
Really enjoyed this movie.It was really acccurate in the way people behaved in the 1950's in the US southern states.
good movie .Historical
Dramatic, funny, poignant. Great cast, emotional. Great great great movie!
Excellent movie! As a mixed (black and white) person, parts of this movie were especially difficult to watch with my parents. It depicted what was happening in that era in a way that really touched everyone's hearts, not just ours. This was the kind of movie where you are crying one minute and laughing the next. Excellently acted and one of my favourite movies of the year!
I give this a 5 star as it ws such a excellent movie
Fan of the book, and while I loved the acting, there were too many differences in/ things that were cut from the movie when compared to the book. I realize you sometimes can't fit EVERYTHING in, but there were things I was expecting to see happen that didn't make it in
