    This a wonderful movie about a football player. I am not really into sports movies but I love this movie. It touched my heart and made me cry. Thank goodness Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for her performance. She is a very talented actress. Plus it's a very inspiring movie that make you want to be a better person and do kind things for others.

    In a tweet:
    Inspiring! You'll leave knowing there is still love in the world, principled families, and lessons to be learned at all stages of life.

    This is a great show for families with teenagers. I would say the rating holds true, it's not for little kids.

    It will make you want to be a better person. Most definitely worth buying.

    Some language and sexual content was made, but nothing that distracts you from the uplifting message of the show.

    Sandra Bullock won a Best Actress award for her role as the plucky, compassionate Leigh, and deservedly so. The story is touching and inspiring, and while it has elements of sports films, the focus remains on the characters, not the game. Based on the life of professional football player Michael Oher, The Blind Side is valuable because it shows the power of family, sacrifice, and good Christian charity in shaping a better world, and movies like that are in tragically short supply.

    It's about time we saw this movie. A little raw in a few parts, mostly involving confrontations in Michael Oher's old neighborhood, but important to understand his upbringing and contrast with his new life. Sandra Bullock holds the family and the movie together.

    This show is fantastic! Sandra Bullock certainly deserved her Oscar; the rest of the cast was great as well. It is a great family film if you have teenagers; it's a pretty clean film, but some of the content is too intense for youngsters. Great lessons; good film.

    Bullock turns in a terrific, ball-breaking performance. Unfortunately, the rest of the film is painfully patronizing. I like Bullock, and her character was fully realized & portrayed here, but it could have been played by most fine actresses just as well. ( I am still bitter she won the Oscar over Meryl Streep, a TRUE Oscar-worthy turn in "Doubt"). That being said, it's predictable, manipulative, and the last 30 minutes of the film completely lost me. I just didn't care anymore, because i knew how it would end. See it for Sandra. No other reason...

    This is a great family show, especially for a football fan. The best part is it's based on a true story. You will come away praising Sandra Bullock for her performance. I highly recommend it.

    I agree with @mem0ri. This is a very inspiring story with some touching scenes. Some mature content for younger audiences.

    A good and inspiring movie that doesn't hide too much from the realities of Michael Oher's childhood. Some scenes and portions of the subject matter may be inappropriate for younger children. I would probably rate it PG-15.
