Summary: Based on the true story and yes this is a true story of Michael Oher, an overlooked young African-American who was taken in by the Touhys who provide him an education and groom his natural talents in football.
Summary: This was a pretty good sports movie. True-stories are always a good way to start out a sports moive, especially when a story is as compelling as Oher's. I cannot stand Bullock in the movie as she chewed through the scenery, this is in part to what the writers gave her, but still.

Summary: I did not know about Michael Oher before this movie as I was not following football games past few years. His story was new to me. I was really inspired by this movie and his story. It is wonderful movie. I would recommend everyone to watch this movie. Overall, a great inspiring drama!

Summary: After adopting an African- American, Leigh Anne Tuohy didn't know she is not just changing a man's life, but also hers. *** Very touching and heart-warming. Sandra Bullock, indeed, made this film filled with love. The story based on true story is irresistibly good and really moving.
