VIDEO: The Help (2011)
Mr. Mendo joins forces with the Rosen Hacker for one of the worst Best Picture Oscar nominees ever, The Help! Based on Kathryn Stockett’s novel, Emma Stone is a White Savior character in 1960s Mississippi who writes a book about the black maids in town (Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer), which makes all the white people in town feel bad about racism. It also makes a buttload of money for Emma, while leaving the maids worse off then before. Whoops!
Also in this episode, Mendo and Rosen get a lot of help from their fellow reviewers as they try to figure out just how many cameos can physically fit in one review!
