The Blind Side: 'Precious' for McCain voters

"The inspirational sports drama, made for just $29 million, earned a stalwart $41 million in three days, $57.5 million in five. Whereas New Moon's revenue fell 70% from last weekend's neck-swiveling $142.8 million take, The Blind Side's tally actually increased about 18% in its second weekend" — Time Magazine
Has Sandra Bullock just muscled her way to the front of the Best Actress race? According to my patented Academy Voting Pattern Progonosticator, she's about the only person who could bleed votes away from Gabby Sidibe. Precious is beginning to fade at the box office: not even a dozen Oscars will make that film a hit in the heartland. The Blind Side tackles the same themes, wrapping them in one a big shiny bow of inspiration-and-rhinestones. It's Precious for McCain voters. If ever there was a film to make peace between the urban black experience and the South it is this one, and if ever there was a time for a film like that to clean up it is now.
