Hope Floats Reviews:

One of the things that truly irks me are some people's rapid willingness to typecast actors and actresses, and dump on them when they test something new. While it has to be told that Sandra Bullock does not avoid exploding buses, or have to hunt down any cryogenically frozen terrible guys in this picture, "Hope Floats" is a better film than most give it credit, and Ms. Bullock and the helping cast place in fine performances of their own to create a very touching and poignant film.Forest Whitaker (acting in such movies as "Blown Away" and "Phenomenon" sits in the Director's chair on this one and crafts a tale that deals with many various emotional themes, carried earnestly by sensitive and hero revealing performances from his leading lady and the helping cast.While it gotta be told that Ms. Bullock provides some very memorable scenes in this movie (especially when drunk) the casting of Gena Rowlands, Harry Connick Jr, and Michael Pare deliever more ballast with fine performances delivered from all.But the highlight for me in this movie - young Mae Whitman and her performance as Ms. Bullock's on-screen daughter. At the conclusion of one very moving stage near the end of the movie I should only watch her and wonder at just how bright this young actress' future will be.So, if blood, bombs and action is your scene, then "Hope Floats" may not be your scene, but if you are into drama with solidly acted and well crafted characters by very fine actors, then "Hope Floats" is for you. It will leave you very pleased that you took the time to see this very finely made and acted film.


I'm surprised at the harsh reviews and weak rating of this movie!Unlike another so-called "chick flicks", this film has an authentic appeal to it and a true heart. Sandra Bullock is a shamed and distraught mother returning to her hometown after being dejected by her husband on national television. She is the beauty queen turned humiliated housewife and her old neighbors don't hesitate to rub it in. Sandra's strong-willed and adorable daughter is played wonderfully by Mae West. Their dysfunctional relationship is a central plot element throughout the film. Sandra finds strength in her own mother and finds fresh romance with a strong, sensitive cowboy kind played surprisingly well by Harry Conick Jr.Sandra gotta come to terms with her changing identity and role as mother while her daughter wars for a false allusion of Sandra's husband. An impending divorce between Sandra and her husband and the struggles of Sandra's daughter and nephew, make many heartbreakingly touching moments and at last - an intriguing storyline with a sense of humor. Living in Texas and having visited a several tiny towns, I can state that the movie's portrayal of tiny city life is a very realistic one which only adds to the films' effectiveness.


This film touched me more personally than any another film ever. The down home country feeling just screams America and what girl hasn't been in Birdie's shoes. Heck... what girl isn't looking for their Justin? This film has it all... love and pain... laughter and tears. It's perfect. The beauty of the country along with the tiny city family atmosphere makes this pure. I know I also love the humor. Bernice is the best! She has heart and knows what she wants. The fact that she can say Justin how it is impresses me and empowers me. The melody is some of the most pretty melody I've heard and it just makes this experience all the more excellent for me! I love it and suggest it to any girl who has ever been harm and survived. Thank you for giving me this occasion to express my opinion.
