    Never dull, but it's rarely more than gently entertaining. show more

    David Hiltbrand Philadelphia Inquirer

    An engaging if transparent tearjerker of the first water. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    It's fair to say that Bullock's appealing portrait of a strong-willed Tennessee belle ranks among the best work of her career. It's just too bad the movie around her comes up short. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Bullock is an irrepressible hoot in writer-director John Lee Hancock's otherwise thoroughly conventional take on Michael Lewis' fact-based book "The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game." show more

    Unlike the tale told in "Precious", however, The Blind Side's story is contrived, storybook sweet, credulity-straining and ... um, true. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    What makes The Blind Side a Thanksgiving treat is director Hancock's subtle touch and admirable refusal to yield to sports movie clichés, something he did previously with "The Rookie" and "Remember the Titans." show more

    Ann Hornaday Washington Post

    Grounded in the direct, disarming truth of their experience, the movie has a straightforward lack of cheap sentiment that saves it from being either too maudlin or saccharine-sweet. show more

    In a head-to-head comparison, one would be hard-pressed not to declare that "Precious" is the better film - it makes fewer compromises and doesn't shy from showing the true ugliness only hinted at in this movie, but The Blind Side is more accessible. It's easier to digest. In the end, both films tell stories of triumph over adversity - a category of drama that uplifts while offering a dollop of social commentary. show more

    Without restraint or subtlety, but with a lot of heart and energy, this movie tells a real-life tall tale. show more

    I love Sandra Bullok and this movie was so great and inspiring. It shows that we do still have such nice and wonderful people in this world that are willing to do such great things for other people. I give Leigh Ann Tuohy great props for doing what she did. In today's unfortunate cruel world many people would have just left him there and stared at him wondering why he was in the freezing cold in shorts and a tee but Leigh Ann didn't much more than that she took him in, even though it started out as just for a night she and the rest of the family grew to love him and it just goes to show how good people in today's world sometimes go unnoticed and if it wasn't for this movie I don't know if the world would of ever of known of such a great and heart warming story.

    This family film is one that makes me realize our great blessings in America; Leigh Ann Tuohy(Bullock), is the hero *********** an african-american teen from the impoverished lifestyle he led in childhood.Kathy Bates stars as Miss Sue,the tutor who makes Michael aspire for great dreams.With Sean( Tim McGraw) and their two children,Leigh Ann helps Michael Oher realize the spirit of determination and motivation.Bravo and cheers to Bullock, Bates and cast for this memorable film !
