Movie trailer


In my opinion this had huge potential.
But I seriously felt sick from Bullock's acting at some point. She just annoys me on another level in this one
Watched this great movie awhile back. Loved it. Now just this past week he will be playing for the Tn. Titans in 2014. Welcome to the team.
Very touching story. Wish there were more people like that in this world. Sandra did an amazing job in this role as did Quinton as Michael. 10/10

I loved this movie! I didn't think it was THAT sad like I've heard, but it was a cute feel-good movie.

great movie...pretty interesting to see big mike like that after all he was a homeless

"The Blind Side" is certainly a touching story and what makes it more compelling is it's based on a true story. Even though these miracles only happen in life rarely it did in this case with Michael Oher an orphaned teen who goes on to athletic stardom by getting drafted to the NFL. Yet "The Blind Side" is more than a story of a down on his luck kid that rises to fame, it's main showcase is the tough love of Leigh Anne Tuohy(played to perfection by Sandra Bullock her best performance ever)Sandy really steals the show.

Based on the true story of Michael Oher(Quinton Aaron)who's orphaned from a young age by having a runaway day and a drug addicted mother. He's grown up in a life of the hood and projects his only hope and escape is that a family member has contacted and wedged a local Memphis, TN high school(Wingate)to see his potential as this kid is big as a mountain he certainly has the size to be a powerful lineman. Oher enrolls yet he's awkward not well educated in the books and still homeless only by happens chance while walking along a road one night he's spotted by a family. This family happens to be the Tuohys a well to do wealthy conservative republican family who rank as the class of Memphis, TN. It's when the backbone of the clan Leigh Anne(Bullock) says right in front of her two children and husband Sean(nice appearance by Tim McGraw)to pull over and take the boy home as her children have noticed him from school.

The adaptation is tough at first only to narrowly grow as one by one they get to know Michael and Leigh Anne with her good Christian heart decides that the Tuohys will become his newly legally adopted family. Along the way growing pains are expected but never fear with this families resources Michael is educated and learns a lot as his book skills improve. Still Michael is odd showing no interest in girls yet his one to be discovered talent is playing left tackle on the football team. As his power and god given ability is well showcased in the film. Yet all along his desire to do well comes from his new loving family the Tuohys who give him inspiration mostly Leigh Anne who struts her stuff in memorable scenes by telling Michael on the scrimmage field how to block by giving him words of encouragement. Plus Leigh stands up to her elegant and rich snob female friends at dinner who make fun of her for adopting a black boy.

All of this standing tall love and support lead to Michael getting recruited to play college ball at Ole Miss(where the Tuohys went to school). Then after that journey Michael is drafted by The NFL's Baltimore Ravens and he's currently their starting rookie left tackle. Really this film does have a little to much hyperbole and even though it's real and compelling it's a fairy tale story that's slim even though these stories happen they are far and few in between. Still the wild card and film backbone is Sandra Bullock(Sandy is so good with the southern accent) who's near perfect in her portrayal of Mrs. Tuohy who's such a good hearted and nice Christian southern woman. It proves with a strong mother figure who gives tough love, caring, and support a young man can be molded into not only something great but something special and become a grown man. "The Blind Side" is hyperbole and a real fairy tale type that showcases a feel good story of a man coming of age by finding out what a loving family brings. And most important It doesn't blind our feelings of tough love as Sandra Bullock's strong and direct southern belle performance proves a mother figure is so important.

Two and a half stars with a plus, out of four.
Sandra was amazing, emotional side dragged on about 10 minutes longer than it should have, but entertaining nonetheless.
AMAZING! Sandra Bullock totally diserved the Best Actreee. Good story, no cliches, AMAZING prefeormances, make this THE BEST of 2009.
The great and inspiring story behind this movie added with Sandra Bullock's amazing performance makes The Blind Side a movie definitely worth seeing.
My girl Sandra was as good as ever, and you cant say this movie was not entertaining. But this movie was so drawn out and it dragged so much. It may have been my fault for going into a Sandra Bullock movie and expecting it to be a football movie, but I had no idea it would be this boring. Regardless, this movie was very well done but I think it was "disneyfied" a lot more than I would have liked- mostly the interaction between Michael Oher and his new little brother. Lets face facts, this was a feel-good movie to the extreme, the only problem was I left the theater feeling like I had wasted what seemed like 4 hours of my life on a movie that didn't do anything for me. If you are a Sandra fan then you should see this, its her best, but otherwise I think this movie is pretty overrated.
