The life of the party...before she got a life.
A disastrous drunken episode lands successful new york journalist gwen cummings in rehab, where she encounters a bizarre assortment of characters and unique rituals during her touching and often hilarious road to recovery. Special features: interactive menus, scene selections, and much more.

"Perhaps...the best work Sandra Bullock has ever done!  New York Post
"Two thumbs up!  Roger Ebert, Roger Ebert At The Movies

Editor's Note
New York City newspaper reporter Gwen Cummings (Sandra Bullock) likes to party. But at her sister Lily's (Elizabeth Perkins) wedding, she parties a little too much, makes a spectacle of herself, and ends up driving a commandeered limousine into a neighbor's front porch. In lieu of prison, Gwen is sent to a rehabilitation program at Serenity Glen, where cell phones are banned and patients chant for inspiration. Surrounded by other addicts, Gwen finds herself dealing with personal issues she has denied for years. Eventually, she realizes that in living under a cloud of alcohol, she wasn't truly living. Dapper Brit Dominic West plays Jasper, Gwen's charming partner in love and partying, and Viggo Mortensen appears as her potential love interest, Eddie Boone, a professional baseball player with an addiction to booze and women. Betty Thomas, known more for her work directing comedies (THE BRADY BUNCH MOVIE, PRIVATE PARTS), guides 28 DAYS with the hand of an assured dramatist. Perennial good girl Bullock is surprisingly believable as a party girl in need of a wake-up call.

Premiere
"...A surprisingly touching and tender affair....[A] fine ensemble cast..." -- 3 stars out of 5 -- A Satisfying Rental 10/01/2000 pp.87-8

Box Office
"...This is Bullock's film. It is a gutsy performance and she creates a totally believable character..." 05/01/2000 p.66

Chicago Sun-Times
"...Bullock brings a kind of ground-level vulnerability to 28 DAYS..." 04/14/2000 p.30

eFilmcriic.com 7 of 10
...probably the most fun I've ever had at a movie about an inconsiderate drunk... [the director] brings enough laughs to balance out the tears---alcoholism can be a rather depressing subject matter, so it's nice to see filmmakers having so much fun with it... [the script] is punchy and funny, but also knows when to cool the humor and acknowledge the seriousness behind the subject matter.

Box Office Magazine 8 of 10
...never have [Sandra Bullock's] talents been more in evidence than in this cautionary tale...there is a strong supporting cast... But this is Bullock's film. It is a gutsy performance and she creates a totally believable character. - Mike Kerrigan
