Make no mistake about it. Sandra Bullock is funny in this movie, playing a very intelligent woman who sometimes lacks common sense and goes with a lot of off-the-cuff moments. She is unique. She quotes Jesus and philosophers and understands physics which, by the way, comes in handy for her in this film. She also falls hard for a guy named Steve, and she uses Steve in her next crossword puzzle at the newspaper she works for. The puzzle includes things such as the color of Steve’s eyes, and so forth, which results in her losing her job.
However, she is resilient and she makes friends everywhere she goes. When she comes to the rescue of a deaf child who fell into a mine, she soon becomes a national heroine and Steve, who previously avoided her like the plague, begins to see her with new eyes. Unfortunately, the film is peppered with strong language and strong sexual comments, as well as a few sexual moments, and we are therefore unable to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to the movie.
