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

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 possesses all the depth and insight of a made-for-TV movie.

Chicago Sun-Times

Bullock brings a kind of ground-level vulnerability to 28 Days that doesn't make her into a victim but simply into one more suitable case for treatment.

28 Days is a reminder of why Bullock became a movie star in the first place
Eric D. Snider
January 1, 2000
Slight, frothy and quasi-meaningful -- a 'lite' movie if ever there was one.

Sure, alcoholism and comedy are as hard to mix correctly as a dry martini, but director Thomas can't seem to overcome this script, which could have used some rehab itself.
Andrew Manning

January 1, 2000
Not entirely original, but Bullock is charming and the supporting ensemble cast is solid in this rehab drama.

Bullock gives it her all; she's bristling and alive on screen in a way that she hasn't been since Speed.

The saddest part about 28 Days is it's more fun when it's drunk.
Bob Thompson
Jam! Movies
January 1, 2000
It's self-revealing, self-serving and just plain sitcom-like.
Jim Judy
Screen It!
January 1, 2000
The film certainly comes off as mostly effortless to watch, but ultimately doesn't turn into anything stirring, emotionally involving or special.
Carlo Cavagna
January 1, 2000
Bullock downplays her trademark mannerisms and allows her character to take precedence.

Village Voice

Thomas's fleet-footed approach suggests the anxious embarrassment of a director in an awful hurry to get it over with.
Jack Garner
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
January 1, 2000
The film lacks emotional resonance.

Mostly, though, this is a cookie-cutter drama.
