Oversized African American Michael Oher, the teen from across the tracks and a broken home, has nowhere to sleep at age 16. Taken in by an affluent Memphis couple, Leigh Anne and Sean, Michael embarks on a remarkable rise to play for the NFL.

Review In A Nutshell:
I am actually going to keep this review in a size of a nutshell since it is already around 8:30 pm, and to review at this time usually leads me to a series of yawns that further extends the writing process. John Lee Hancock, the film’s director, has taken an inspiring subject, a boy, Michael Oher, who has escaped the tragedies of his past and culture, finding solace under the roof and care of a sympathetic middle class Caucasian woman, Leigh Anne Tuohy, and her family. Michael’s journey is familiar, but contains the potential to raise strong points of social class and blind, thoughtful charity. Leigh was a woman who has finally seen the struggling conditions…
So sentimental and manipulative that it hurts.
At least it had some nice cinematography.
I should've just watched the Lily Collins clips on Youtube
A stirring drama that explores the dangers of affirmative action, Christian values, obesity and being sassy
It's attempts at emotional manipulation are bordering on vulgar. True story? Sure, stereotypes are based on truth as well, but they're always shallow representations of reality. This film is nothing more than that, something even Bullock's slightly less mediocre performance than normal can save.
"The Blind Side" is a straightforward film about family and football with its focus more heavily placed on the former. Moving without being maudlin, the film has tons of warmth and heart; it's very much worth seeing.
مايك الضخم قصة حقيقية تروي حكاية ذلك الفتى الذي يعيش بلا مأوى بلا عائلة ؛ إن سميتم ذلك عيشاً! انتشلته امرأة من الصفر من القاع بل أسفل من ذلك
ليصبح اللاعب رقم ١ لأمريكا بأكملها في كرة القدم. كان من الممكن أن يكون عكس ذلك تماما ولكن هي لحظة وحدة عكست مسار ذلك تماما
كذلك هي الحياة هي مجرد لحظة، فاغتنمها كما يجب فإن فاتت فاركض نحوها؛ إن استطعت اللحاق بها!! فلم جميل جداً استمتعت فيه من البداية وحتى النهاية
فلم يبعث البهجة والسرور فلم رائع مهما كنت ستتعاطف مع مايكل قصة ممتعة ، استمتعوا بها.
قالوا بأن خلف كل رجل عظيم امرأة ولكن نسوا أنه قبل ذلك "خلف كل طفل عظيم امرأة"
y'all just look in your bitter cold dark abyss of a soul and you'll learn to like it
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is a mediocre Lifetime movie which got a theatrical release exclusively because it stars almost on the B List Bullock. This being a posting on the Internet I suppose I can't just leave it at that so I guess I should give lip service to the racism question. To make a small distinction there's a huge difference between being racist and having racism as a characteristic. The film pretty clearly is not with even Corlett's concept of benign racism being largely prevented due to the film's right wing anti-pluralist reality largely leaving Oher being black irrelevant. It's a strange and foreign approach to the under 40 set for sure, but that doesn't make it racist. That said the portrayal…
Lovely story and it so sweet to see a true story like this one in our lives
This is dreadful. It is as boneheaded about race as it is about football. Also the cameos are bad enough to make any self-respecting college football fan want to swear off the sport entirely.
By the books American sports sentiment with a central conflict that gets blown out of proportion.
Bullock was better in Gravity.
One of my fav sports films
really not that good. a nice story, I guess
