A bit too simplistic. You can see a big difference between this film and, for instance, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

The movie 28 days is a rather lengthy movie about Gwen; a rude, vulgar, repulsive, alcoholic woman who is going through 28 days of rehabilitation at an unremarkable treatment center, after ruining her sister's wedding, stealing a limousine and crashing it into somebody's house. In my opinion, the characters in this movie are rather detestable; as it is painfully obvious that the main character, along with the other members of this godforsaken asylum, which is a central setting to the movie, indulge themselves in repugnant, detrimental consumption of narcotics, and thus they are subordinate in that they cannot be trusted to not destroy themselves when left alone. If this movie actually conveys any kind of message at all, then this message is the consequences of being dependent; particularly, on drugs. Indeed, I have never before seen so many elaborate examples of derelicts in a movie. This movie was rather painful for me to watch, as I am apparently not comfortable in the presence of so much failure. It is true that nearly all the greatest and most successful movies inspire us, however this movie's abominable portrayal of humanity is rather dejecting in nature. This movie was, indeed, the worst movie I have ever seen.
Sandra Bullock does a good job in portraying Gwen, a drug addict and an epic failure of a human-being. At times, I was actually convinced that I was observing an actual manifestation of the lowest ends of human civilization. The relatively accurate portrayal of the more disgusting parts of humanity was indeed impressive to see as physically rendered, but rather difficult to watch as a cinematic end-result.

In most anti-drug films, the point of the film (that drugs are bad) is made clear once the guinea-pig drug-addict is arrested for some obscene act, is put into jail for the epilogue, and then rolling the credits. This movie somehow finds a way to extend the epilogue of this archetype concept into a tedious, two-hour sit-fest.

I'm Guessing These Funny Moments Riding The Up's & Down's On An Emotional Rollercoaster Of Withdrawal Are Not Too Far Off The Mark. It Works Nicely & Of Course Sandra Looks Beautiful.. ;-)

Ehkä paras Sandra Bullockin leffa, jonka oon nähnyt. Niinkin vaikeasta aiheesta kuin alkoholiriippuvuus on onnistuttu saamaan hauska elokuva. (Suom. 28 päivää)

A Hallmark Channel movie masquerading as a serious film with something to say.

An interesting movie choice for her. Loved Sandra Bullock in this movie. Loved the chemistry between all the actors.

I enjoyed it. Bullock, Buscemi, and others were pretty good.

This certainly had its moments, but overall I just didn't find this very compelling.

***Due to the recent RT changes that have basically ruined my past reviews, I am mostly only giving a rating rather than a full review.***

Awful movie, trivializes rehab and is just boring and stupid to boot!

It's no Girl Interrupted.

Almost made me want to hate myself. Good movie on the whole. Conflict scenes get to be a little over dramatic bordering on silly, but it almost evens out.

Could have done better with the whole story!

Actors are good and some very interesting characters but it never really conclude as much as it stops
