Raising Helen

2

A two-hour power-ballad montage from Garry Pretty Woman Marshall, this is another female empowerment fantasy, except instead of hooking for happiness, you must be a mum to be complete. Credit to a Kate Hudson that she makes this saccharine slop occasionally bearable, as a go-getting city singleton saddled with her dead sister's kids. Only her scenes with other sister Joan Cusack have any heft, though; the rest has the emotional range of an autistic dog.
