"Two thumbs up! Roger Ebert, Roger Ebert At The Movies
Editor's NoteNew 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.
