She shares this roller-coaster lifestyle of hopping from dance club to bar to hangover with boyfriend Jasper-handsome, magnetic and equally attracted to life on the wild side.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"28 Days is a cutesy, heavy-handed morality tale that contains nary a believable moment."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"Eminently likable Sandra Bullock has lately shown a bizarre knack for choosing hard-to-like movies. 28 Days continues her unenviable streak ."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"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."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"Plays it pretty safe for the most part, but it does give you a hint of what goes on in the real world."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The result is a hard-knocks movie whose edges are smoothed away to please an addiction to happy endings."
‑ Duane Dudek, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"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."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Strong rehab story for mature high schoolers."
‑ Ellen MacKay, Common Sense Media
"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."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"28 Days starts out on the wrong foot by attempting to milk far too many laughs from Gwen's sloppy-drunk behavior."
‑ Brad Haynes, Orlando Weekly
"None of the characters are particularly engaging, not even Bullock."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"It's going to take more than 28 Days to jump-start Sandra Bullock's stalled career."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"28 Days contains Sandra Bullock's best performance...it's just too bad the film itself isn't up there with her."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"An out-of-control young woman who is in denial is forced to finally confront her multiple addictions."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Its effort to be both a rollicking farce and a dark drama of alcoholism doom it to a certain failure from the get-go."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Un mensaje que por momentos quiere ser profundo y reflexivo pero que, desafortunadamente, se queda en el intento"
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
