28 Days contains Sandra Bullock's best performance...it's just too bad the film itself isn't up there with her.
| Original Score: 2/4

Entertainment Today
August 30, 2002
An off-kilter collection of shallowly observational postcards from the edge... [that's] more a laundry list of emotional checkpoints than a sustained, compelling narrative.

An underrated actress, Bullock capably fulfills the demands of her role as a pill-popping drunk. But the story never allows Bullock to escape the comfort zone of a romantic comedy.

An out-of-control young woman who is in denial is forced to finally confront her multiple addictions.

Plays it pretty safe for the most part, but it does give you a hint of what goes on in the real world.

28 Days starts out on the wrong foot by attempting to milk far too many laughs from Gwen's sloppy-drunk behavior.

This is a movie afraid of its own shadows.
William Arnold
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
January 1, 2000
Its effort to be both a rollicking farce and a dark drama of alcoholism doom it to a certain failure from the get-go.
Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
January 1, 2000
The result is a hard-knocks movie whose edges are smoothed away to please an addiction to happy endings.

28 Days is too glib too often to make much of an impression any way you look at it.

It's not bad, but it's not very good, either.

San Francisco Chronicle

28 Days tries hard to be funny. Occasionally it is. But mostly it seems forced, pat and didactic.
Eric Lurio
Greenwich Village Gazette
January 1, 2000
None of the characters are particularly engaging, not even Bullock.
| Original Score: 7/10
January 1, 2000
Un mensaje que por momentos quiere ser profundo y reflexivo pero que, desafortunadamente, se queda en el intento
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Betty Thomas' amiable little rehab romantic dramedy 28 Days may aspire to be more, but it's clearly another member of this disingenuous movie family.
| Original Score: 2/4
Wesley Morris

With a script by Susannah Grant written as if in bumper stickers, fortune cookies and Oprah transcripts, 28 Days is the kitchen-sink rehab flick.
Dave Kehr

We are a long way here from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
Randall King
Winnipeg Sun
January 1, 2000
Bullock also covers herself with gratuitous comedy and predictable drama to prevent audiences from seeing the naked truth of addiction.
Todd Anthony
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
January 1, 2000
On balance, it's as bland and predictable as a domestic draft beer.
