Hilariously Funny Film
14 June 2007 | by skylark1965See all my reviews

I found the film LORD HELP US inspirational with a sweet love story between two best friends. It was hilariously funny too! I highly recommend this film to any family member, it's appropriate for all age groups! The cast is perfect in all roles, from the pastor to the secretaries at the church. I found that the film is a bird's eye view of a culture in America that enriches us socially and leads us to a better understanding between races and ethnicities. The role of Mrs. Ortiz added the view that Hispanics may be afraid of African-Americans, or may fear them, by her hysterical display. However, since this is a satire, her actions were appropriate and very funny. It' nice to know we can still laugh at ourselves, while still respecting each other's cultures.
