Also, both seem like one is for women and the other is for men. The truth is, both genders commonly went to see both movies. Also, just because one is aimed supposedly at men, the other at women, it still doesn't excuse having a righteous white. The Help had so much opportunity and failed. You can't say "Well this movie was more for women, so blah blah blah." No, there is no excuse.
OK, that's pretty much the whole point of this post, but I'll point out a few more things:
-It was really funny at times.
-It had some really heart wrenching scenes (spoiler: like when Lucky died at the end).
-It had an black/Italian couple (seriously, this is the first movie I've ever seen having that). Plus the Lucky/Sophia storyline was very well thought out, you knew they actually cared about each other. They may have both spoken different languages, but that added to their feelings.
-It had action, enough said.
Gah, I've also recently been wanting to watch the movie Bamboozled, but my library doesn't have it. Maybe this movie makes me want to watch a million others on race.
Side Note: My mother, sister, and aunt are all big fans of The Help, while I'm not. I don't understand why more people aren't seeing the book/movie as wrong.
