28 Days (2000)

28 DAYS is walk-out worthy.  Sandra Bullock in rehab.  That's 
it.  That's the movie.  Single chick with attitude avoids DUI jail 
time at nutty-crunchy clinic in upstate New York.  Were it played 
more subtly and with fewer "colorful" touches-- like the Dr. 
Strangelove-looking gay German group-therapy member-- it might've 
been moving.  Or just baseline interesting.  This non-drinker-
had-them simply scratched his head (and occasionally his ass) and 
left after an hour.  One question:  why are patients allowed ciga-
rettes?  Nicotine's a drug, isn't it?  With Viggo Mortensen, Dom-
inic West, Diane Ladd, Elizabeth Perkins, Steve Buscemi, Marianne
Jean-Baptiste, Azura Skye, and Alan Tudyk.  Betty Thomas, the ex-
pert dramatarian of THE BRADY BUNCH MOVIE fame, directs.  (Rated
"R"/103 min.)

Grade: W/O
