Raising Helen

Garry Marshall (Pretty Woman) serves up a big slice of postfeminist backlash with nondairy whipped topping. A free-spirited New Yorker who works at a modeling agency (Kate Hudson) becomes a mother after her sister dies and leaves behind three children. Luckily for Hudson the kids' school principal (John Corbett) is a tall, handsome, unmarried Lutheran minister and one of the supermodels she works with has time to give her a limo ride from Manhattan to Queens so she can soothe the tearful youngest child, who's having trouble tying her shoelaces. The picture flogs a fake dichotomy between career and family for 119 minutes until Hudson digests a feeble moral that Laverne and Shirley would have covered in 25. With Joan Cusack.
