What surprised me about The Blind Side is how much btteer it was than I expected. I was the definition of pleasantly surprised. Hancock avoids a number of cliches you’d normally find in an Inspirational Movie (capitals are necessary) like this, and Sandra Bullock is great. Even her Southern accent’s not bad (this coming from a bona-fide Carolina girl). I suspect she knew this role would earn her some nominations, but I don’t fault her for that she’s a talented actress, and it’s high time she stopped wasting herself in crap like Miss Congeniality. After this, I don’t see how she can go back to that.

Sandra Bullock and supermodel Heidi Klum have a girly night out as they leave Mr. Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills. The pair left out the back of the restaurant and were smiling and laughing as they left in a car. March 16, 2012.
