Storyline

Maria was on her way to becoming a beautician when her mother's illness forced the 22 year-old to come home to care for her. Maria's mom has since moved on to a better place. Maria has moved on as well - to be the maid for the insanely wealthy Ridgeway dynasty. As one of many servants who dote on the demented and dysfunctional family, Maria juggles extremely important tasks like dusting their many unread books, vacuuming their priceless rugs and picking up after their prized poodle Pookie. But the biggest surprise comes when Maria discovers there's not only a class struggle between the upstairs and the downstairs, but there's an all out war among The Help! Written by Anonymous

They do it again.
11 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I watched the Pilot episode of "The Help" and was nearly bored to death. It wasn't funny in any aspect. There are too many cast members, with not enough good lines to share between them. The fact that they brought the kid form Married...With Children back proves that they were desperate enough to bring back a has-been just to give the audience someone to identify with. None of the cast members are even likeable. Tori Spelling managed to annoy me within the second time she opened her mouth to reveal her "true" feelings.

Overall, if you miss this, it's for the greater good. You will still have a signifigant number of brain cells left over by 10:00.
