The Blind Side

It's weird seeing Tim McGraw without his cowboy hat. But he does a good job in The Blind Side. The true star is Sandra Bullock. You watch her in this film and you can't believe how any guy would cheat on her. She keeps getting better as an actress.

Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy - the woman who essentially adopted and raised a future Baltimore Raven's football player named Michael Oher.

This is a movie touted as a family-friendly film about acceptance and showing the right kind of love to another human being.

While it is based on true events, The Blind Side often feels like it's trying too hard to tug on your emotions. It's like it knows it's supposed to be a tear-jerker and wants to play that card too many times. This caused me to really detach from the movie and wonder, "Did this really happen or are they embellishing stuff just a bit.

With that out of the way, I thought it was a good movie. Bullock did a great job and I can't wait to see her next film.
