The story that follows is Helen's life being turned upside down as she's left to deal with a situation that she has absolutely no experience of and appears to be making an absolute pigs ear of. The reason I titled this review as 'Rings a bell?' is due to the fact that this seems like a modernised version of the Goldie Hawn film 'Overboard.' I thought this and then discovered that the same guy directed both of the films. Despite this, Raising Helen is an above average romantic comedy but don't expect ANY man to enjoy this as it is a ginormous chick flick. John Corbett is extremely likeable as the love interest and that's the main thing going for this film. Not just John Corbett but the whole cast of characters is pretty strong. The stand-out performance is from Joan Cusack who despite being the supporting actress outshines Kate Hudson by a mile.
The film is very much worth watching and it is superior to a lot of romantic comedies especially of modern times.
The extras include a Blooper Reel, a music video, deleted scenes and an audio commentary. Skip the audio commentary. It was about as interesting as watching paint dry.
