Movie Monday: The Blind Side

Movie Monday @ Messy Mommy


It's another Monday which means it's time for Movie Monday with Messy Mommy! My movie this week is a movie that I had been dying to see...and it finally got sent to us via Netflix. I ripped open the package to see what had arrived and squealed with happiness--I finally got the opportunity to watch The Blind Side!


This movie was nothing short of spectacular. It's basically about a boy in high school who has nothing. No family, nowhere to live, nothing to look forward to. He gets noticed by a family one nite and they have him stay at their home. What started out as one simple and random act of kindness turns out to be much, much more.

I admit I cried during random parts...but that's typical Chelle for ya. This movie made me stop and think about just how blessed that I am with my life...I loved this movie--two HUGE thumbs up from both Leo and me. It's definitely one that I would love to buy and add to our collection of movies.

Have a movie that you watched this week? Go and link up with Messy Mommy--and you also get to check out what everyone else watched, too.

I loved this movie! But, if I had to choose (which I don't) I'd take Remember the Titans. I oould watch that movie every day.

Maybe my son will let me watch a movie this week so I can participate next week.

That is exactly how I felt watching it- that I'm so lucky to have what I do. I usually complain that we don't have enough...but in reality, we have the essentials and that's all that's important.

We **loved** this movie, glad you got to see it! I thought Sandra Bullock was fantastic in it -- she was so consistent with the character throughout, and the accent! :-D

I love this movie. Hubby and I actually went to see it on a date night and we both had a few tears rolling down our cheeks. I watched it with my kids about a month ago and they were transfixed! It is such a powerful movie.
