Last weekend, the girls and I went to see The Blind Side. Can I just tell you what an excellent movie it is? Wow.
We don't often grace the presence of movie theaters because of the price and usually lack of substance. And when we do go, I'm usually looking at my watch wondering when the movie will end. Apparently The Blind Side length is 2 hours and 4 or 6 minutes. Not once, did I look at my watch. Well, there was that time I did look wondering why two people showed up in the middle of the movie but that doesn't count.
Sure, there are things in it that makes it PG-13 but it wasn't as bad as I thought. Would I take my 12 year old? No, not yet but definitely when he is older he will watch the dvd. I've heard some reviewers didn't like it because of the sterotypes. But this was the main character's life.
Would I recommend The Blind Side? Run, don't walk, to see it! And don't forget some tissues!
