Quinton Aaron and Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side

Photo: Warner Bros. In an attempt at full disclosure, I saw the trailers for The Blind Side and had little hope it could be any good. I walked in expecting yet another sappy melodrama featuring a poor black kid saved by a rich white person story. In reality, that's exactly what this film is, but it's executed on a level where it isn't as dreadful as one would assume, or the trailers would lead you to believe. As a matter of fact, it's actually pretty good.

I will also tell you there wasn't a single woman I met that wasn't looking forward to this movie. Any conversation I had with a female about movies inevitably led to the question, "What do you think about The Blind Side?" Even those that would poke fun at the trailer were still excited to see it. »
