    A cutesy, heavy-handed morality tale that contains nary a believable moment.

    Bullock's character goes through some changes, but she never turns into some unrecognizably serious actress.
  3. 30
    Thomas's fleet-footed approach suggests the anxious embarrassment of a director in an awful hurry to get it over with.

    So shapeless, pointless and witless a film that it can be explained only by surmising that the people who made it were bombed at the time.

  7. 10

    Sandra Bullock convinced me that she was in rehab about as much as Lindsay Lohan. Bullock, an entertainment vehicle for those going through rehab, stuck out like a sore thumb. The unrealistic scenes and lack of bonding in this film was an embarrassment to those going through such a struggle. Full Review »
