Good, but bites off more than it can chew
"Heaven Help Us" is a warm, funny, and insightful look at Catholic high school life in the 60s. The cast is great, and I'm glad they cast actors who actually look like teenagers, instead of actors in their 20s. I'm also glad the movie had some serious moments, because it makes all the antics and events all the more realistic.

These serious moments are the best parts of the movie. Unfortunately, a lot of them seem undernourished - I have to agree with a writer of an earlier user comment that this movie seems to have been cut down in the editing room. As a result, many subplots seem unfinished or lacking detail, and this includes the characters of some of the Brothers.

I enjoyed this movie a lot, but I would love to see a director's cut one day.
