Rating: 3/5 -- The plot of this tear-jerker is a little heavy-handed, and so is the directing by Forest Whitaker. Full Review

Rating: D- -- ... just horrible, horrible, horrible.

...A clutch of gemlike performances....[Whitaker] directs with sensitive, artful touches...and Caleb Deschanel's camerawork is pure poetry...

Rating: 2/4 -- This material could obviously lead in a lot of different directions. It seems most promising as comedy or satire, but no: Hope Floats is a turgid melodrama with the emotional range of a sympathy card. Full Review

...Painfully honest moments....Bullock stretches her acting muscles...
May 1, 1998
...The formidable actor Forest Whitaker sensitively directs a sterling cast....HOPE FLOATS gives good value, starting with Bullock's and Rowland's knockout performances...

Product Description:

Birdee (Sandra Bullock) is an unassuming housewife whose life is disrupted when her husband (Michael Pare) reveals his infidelity to her on a Jerry Springer-style talk show. She goes home to her mother and the small town in which she grew up--where, of course, everyone knows about her televised marital collapse. Things only get worse as a family tragedy brings her ex-husband back for an official divorce. Meanwhile an old friend, Justin (Harry Connick Jr.), has entered her life, sparking a romance. While Justin's intentions are good, Birdee struggles with the decision to let him fully into her life. This 1998 sleeper was a pet project of leading actress Bullock and became a surprise hit, touching the hearts of its viewers.
