Our Score
In this sentimental drama, Sandra Bullock plays the Manhattan wild child forced into rehab after hijacking a limo at her sister's wedding and driving it into a house. Refusing to admit she has a drink problem, Bullock slowly comes to terms with her alcoholism with help from tough-but-fair guidance counsellor Steve Buscemi and the usual round of kooky Hollywood misfits. From Viggo Mortensen's womanising sports star to Dominic West's irresponsible English drunkard, there's not a single sympathetic male character. Directed by Betty Ford... sorry, Thomas, this is the kind of touchy-feely hogwash that's more likely to drive people to drink than keep them off it. Twenty-eight days? More like a life sentence.

Summary
