The Blind Side

I can not wait to go see "The Blind Side"!  I have heard so many good things about it.  My husband and I had a date night several weeks ago and saw the trailer to this movie and I knew then I wanted to see it!

Mike gets "World" magazine and Michael Oher is on the cover of the November 21st issue.  In the article is this quote from Sandra Bullock (she plays Oher's adoptive mother, Leigh Anne):
"One of my biggest issues has always been people who use their faith and their religion as a banner but don't do the right things, yet still go, 'I'm a good Christian and I go to church and this is the way you should live your life.'  And I'm like, you know, do not give me a lexture about how to live my life when you go to church every week but I know you are still sneaking around on your wife.  And I told Leigh Anne in a live interview, one of my largest concerns getting involved with this project was that whole banner-waving thing because it scares me, and I've had experiences that haven't been great with people like that.  I don't buy a lot of people who use that banner as their shield.  But she was so open and honest and forthright with me I thought, wow, I've finally met someone who practices but doesn't preach.  I finally met people who walk the walk."

Very good food for thought!

What do you think about what Ms Bullock said?

Counting it all Joy,

That's an awesome quote. I've always been a Sandra Bulloch fan and I'm excited about seeing her in this role. I wanted to go see Blind Side last night, but somehow got roped into seeing Planet 51 instead. Not quite the same!!! :)
