I love football movies. Especially when they’re corny. But Laura laughed at me last week when I told her I wanted to see The Blind Side. You’re probably laughing at me for wanting to see The Blind Side. But Michael Oher’s story is irresistible. And while I can’t stand the Baltimore Ravens because I hate Ray Lewis, it’s nothing short of remarkable what Oher has accomplished.

Would it surprise you to learn that The Blind Side is receiving solid industry buzz? It surprised Laura. The studio is very optimistic about the strength of this film, and in particular Sandra Bullock’s performance. The Blind Side is receiving modestly reviews but they’re comparing Sandy to Julia’s Erin Brockovich. Looks like there’s another contender in the race. And this year’s race for Best Actress is already pretty tight.

Sandy was on The Today Show this morning promoting the movie. Trailer is below. The Blind Side opens this weekend, unfortunately it’s up against New Moon. But if it’s good enough, it could be a word of mouther and build steadily. I hope so. I love Sandra Bullock. So much.
