... I must say that I doubt I'd like the film as much had it not been Christmas and just a plain ole good family flick to see with my mom.

[It] is all about the family's altruism and turns a blind eye to silent Michael, with father Sean offering up the excuse: "Michael's gift is his ability to forget." I'm not convinced but that didn't stop me from enjoying the film and admiring Bullock.

The movie is done with crispness, vigor, down-home humor, and an over-all tang of good feeling, but the pushing of buttons is the work of extraordinary calculation.
January 24, 2014
The movie is very familiar -- you've seen it all before -- but it succeeds at achieving its modest goals.

As a fable about the power of giving, it hits pretty hard.
August 2, 2012
It's certainly a heartwarming tale and Bullock delivers a big, ballsy performance as the indomitable Tuohy - but Oscar-worthy? What were they thinking?
July 21, 2012
Serves its purpose by making the audience tear up in some moments and cheer in others. It's a total button-pusher, but it does so in a very good way.

Football may the thread that runs throughout, but the movie is much more interested in the tale of how Oher left behind a life of poverty, violence and foster-home despair to become a champ on the gridiron.

July 5, 2011
A living tribute to fundamental Christian motivations, although the point is hammered home with an extraordinarily soft touch: Love thy neighbor.

You're going to be crying by the end.

The Blind Side, which has reportedly made close to 200 million dollars, is based on a true story (the operative word is "based," of course).

Sing it together with me my brothers, thank the Lawd for he created the white man that he might teach them po' negroes the value of good Christian chariddy.

While The Blind Side constantly threatens to deteriorate into sentimental saccharine, it never does. Bullock's accent grates at first, but she bonds well with McGraw
January 7, 2011
The Blind Side's heart is in the right place--how could it not be, it's got so much to go around--but that's about all that is. There's a good story in there, one that's probably worth experiencing, but load up on insulin before you go.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
September 28, 2010
A nice-as-pie story that lacks any real tension or drama and threatens repeatedly to veer into sappy territory, yet somehow, just through foolhardy "goodness", manages to be consistently enjoyable (if a little slight) for its two hours.

August 14, 2010
Generally enjoyable, but it isn't until the credits roll that you'll realize what a major sentimental impact it has on you.

May 13, 2010
Although based in reality, John Lee Hancock's tale never seems more than just a more serious version of TV's Different Strokes or Webster.

It often feels like a Republican curative for Precious.
April 4, 2010
Sports movie carefully sidesteps the issue of race and stereotypes
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 3, 2010
Una cinta amena, sencilla de digerir y apta para toda la familia, una fábula de la vida real de las que pocas veces suceden y cuando lo hacen, son dignas de llevarlas a la pantalla.
