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...
...The formidable actor Forest Whitaker sensitively directs a sterling cast....HOPE FLOATS gives good value, starting with Bullock's and Rowland's knockout performances...

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.
