"Gwen Cummings (Sandra Bullock), a successful N.Y. journalist and ultimate party girl, loves to have a good time! Trouble is, she never can tell when she's had enough. When Gwen borrows her sister's (Elizabeth Perkins) wedding limo and plows it into someone's front porch, the wild life she shares with her boyfriend Jasper (Dominic West) comes to a screeching halt. Earning herself a DUI and a 28-day stretch in rehab. She faces an unthinkable set of rules (no cell phones!) and some strange rituals, like chanting and (gulp!) sharing her feelings. Joining up with an eccentric group of fellow rehabbers led by the inimitable Counselor Cornell (Steve Buscemi), Gwen embarks on a touching and often hilarious road to recovery, where she learns that life is not always a party and that real happiness comes from within."--Container.

28 DAYS makes rehab and alcoholism and addiction seem like a bit of a joke, too sunny and cavalier about what it's dealing with to be taken seriously. It had a quick-and-cheap TV-movie quality to it. Perhaps it was a TV movie; I didn't look much further after watching it. I feel like I may have seen it on a Sunday afternoon playing on the telly, but I can't be sure. It's an incredibly forgettable watch, one that I'll probably end up seeing again for lack of memory of having seen it in the first place. It's basically harmless, though, and written a little haphazardly with some gaping holes and loose ends left flapping in the wind that I wish were tied and tightened up. But like I said -- harmless. So, if you're interested in it, give it a watch; you won't gain much, but you'll only lose a couple of hours.

This was like a poor man's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." A very very poor man. One redeeming feature is that it gave me a chance to see what Vigo Mortensen, Steve Buscemi and Marianne Jean-Baptiste were doing 15 years ago.

Sandra Bullock is exceptional in this film. She plays a character who is forced to be in rehab due to alcoholism. She experiences many good and bad experiences while there, but it only helps to strengthen her for the world.
