Two Random Movie Reviews: ‘The Blind Side and ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby’

I love it when I randomly watch movies that I’ve never seen before and had no intention of watching but end up enjoying. That’s what happened yesterday when my family and I stopped on FX and ended up watching both of these movies back to back.

BS-16478 QUINTON AARON as Michael Oher and SANDRA BULLOCK as Leigh Anne Tuohy in Alcon EntertainmentÕs drama ÒThe Blind Side,Ó a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

The Blind Side garnered Sandra Bullock an Oscar for her performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy, a kind woman who takes in a homeless teenager, Michael Oher, who then becomes a football star. It’s a true story and a heartwarming feel-good movie that had me and my family clapping teary-eyed at the end.

The movie was very enjoyable, far better than I had expected, and Sandra Bullock deserved her Oscar win 100%.


And then there was Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. This movie was outrageously funny from beginning to end with so many hilarious twists and turns. I was very surprised to see Sacha Baron Cohen in the film and yes, he had me in stitches. In fact, there were a lot of moments that I’ll remember because it was that funny.

For years I had heard about this movie and I knew it was one of Will Ferrel’s best films. Well, now I know why.


So, basically, I had a great Saturday.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
