Picking up where the feature film of the same title leaves off, comedy follows a young Manhattanite as she struggles to balance her new hard-won job at a modeling agency with raising her recently orphaned nephew and nieces.
As shallow and formulaic as a sitcom.
[Garry Marshall] piles on the cornball touches with the sledgehammer effect of a bad sitcom director.
Even those who seek the undemanding entertainment of life troubles being bravely dealt with might end up wishing they were given more than just sitcom resolutions.
Marshall does a decent job with this film, keeping everything 'nice' as you find in most of his movies.
This ode to the most stifling aspects of family and motherhood make you feel like the hicks have all uprooted themselves and moved into the front office at Touchstone.
There's no real conflict, and the screenplay sometimes approaches idiocy.
Light drama with some appealing moments.
Almost nothing about Raising Helen rings very true, other than the camera's crush on Kate Hudson.
Far from the worst cookie-cutter film to come off the Hollywood assembly line, merely the latest.
Yet another social fable about women in distress from Gary Marshall with no foundation in any reality and a mannered, irritating performance from Kate Hudson.
