After getting into a car accident while drunk on the day of her sister's wedding, Gwen Cummings is given a choice between prison or a rehab center. She chooses rehab, but is extremely resistant to taking part in any of the treatment programs they have to offer, refusing to admit that she has an alcohol addiction. After getting to know some of the other patients, Gwen gradually begins to re-examine her life and see that she does, in fact, have a serious problem. The path to recovery will not be easy, and success will not be guaranteed or even likely, but she is now willing to give it a try. Written by

Gwen Cummings (Sandra Bullock) is a mess. She crashes the limo ruining her sister Lily (Elizabeth Perkins)'s wedding reception. She's forced into rehab for 28 days. Her boyfriend Jasper (Dominic West) is an enabler and smuggle drugs into rehab. The treatment center is full of eccentric addicts run by Cornell (Steve Buscemi).
The eccentrics have their moments. Parts of it is dark. It's tone gets uneven and changes a lot. The good part is Sandra Bullock. She has an innate charm and likability which makes all her craziness very cute. Her vulnerability seems raw and real. It's probably pretty accurate about rehab with an added splash of comedy. It's better and more serious than what's in the trailer.
