The Blind Side is a terrific light hearted drama. Light hearted, because it could have been PG if it wanted to. Drama, because I watch it more for the drama than I do for the football. Like I said in my Remember the Titans review, I’m not a big sports guy. Most sports movies that I see, I like for the story. Not that I didn’t enjoy learning more about football, but The Blind Side has a great story. I didn’t know who Michael Oher was and I definitely didn’t know about his upbringing. He was a homeless black teen and a wealthy white family took him in. Specifically Leigh Anne Tuohy, a mother who was just doing her christian duty. I don’t know if I’d be able to do that, but I’m glad there are people who do. Sandra bullock gives the best performance of her career. She absolutely disappears in the role. So much so that it earned her an Oscar for Best Actress. Which is ironic considering she won a Razzie for Worst Actress the day before. To this date, she’s the only person to ever do that. The Blind Side was a pleasant surprise that held my attention beginning to end.
