is it just me or does the film "the blindside" look kinda, sorta, maybe a little ridiculous? affluent, white family adopts big black kid, turns him into an awesome football player, they become a "family" and learn "valuable lessons" about each other, and we're all supposed to be heart-warmed? makes me feel funny. also, i used to totally dig sandra bullock, but she married a douchebag and has made more treacle than movies lately.

this all just makes me miss marissa tomei.

Strangely, "The Blindside" is actually based on a true story - the kid is now (I think) an offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens.

That being said, Sandra Bullock's performance looks over the top to the point where it's straight up campy. You've met me. I'm from Texas. Do I wiggle around and sass people while wearing my pencil skirt? Um, NO.

PS: Tim McGraw's rug is even worse.
PPS: What, no "New Moon" for you this weekend?
