Consensus: Even though 28 Days is tackling a difficult subject, it comes off light and superficial, and maybe even a little preachy.

Mark Caro
Chicago Tribune

28 Days is a cutesy, heavy-handed morality tale that contains nary a believable moment.

An off-kilter collection of shallowly observational postcards from the edge... [that's] more a laundry list of emotional checkpoints than a sustained, compelling narrative.

Bullock brings a kind of ground-level vulnerability to 28 Days that doesn't make her into a victim but simply into one more suitable case for treatment.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

An underrated actress, Bullock capably fulfills the demands of her role as a pill-popping drunk. But the story never allows Bullock to escape the comfort zone of a romantic comedy.

Employs its share of cliches here and there, but overall, this is a fairly entertaining and well acted take on rehab and the path to ending self-destruction.… More
