We at B&C are no movie critics but we give The Help 3 bumps out of 5–okay movie.  

I personally loved Octavia Spencer as  the sassy housekeeper Minny.  She stole every scene.   I must admit many of the characters were made to be funny or exaggerated stereotypes.  It was funny.  Thought provoking?  Not so much.    I do get the criticism that the Civil Right Movement was graced over.    Should the movie have spent more time on it?  Don’t know.  What I do know is that I am intelligent enough to determine whats fluff and whats real.
