Hope FloatsDirector: Forest Whitaker, Sandra Bullock, Harry Connick Jr., Gena Rowlands
Forest Whitaker's family drama/comedy comes to DVD with a widescreen 1.85:1 transfer that faithfully reproduces the original theatrical aspect ratio. There is an English soundtrack available in Dolby Digital 5.1, as well as English and French soundtracks rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. Subtitles are accessible in either English or Spanish. The only real extra feature is the original theatrical trailer. Fans of Sandra Bullock may be disappointed in the lack of extras, but should appreciate having a copy of one of her more interesting performances.

One of my favorite films. Is it sensitive? Yes. Is it female-centric? Absolutely. Sandra Bullock delivers an honest performance of a woman betrayed and trying to heal. Gena Rowlands is charming as her eccentric mother and Mae Whitman does a fantastic job as a daughter who, although sometimes petulant, is fragile and as heartbroken as her newly-separated mom.
A good girls night out movie. The soundtrack is good!
We loved this movie. It was funny, clever and romantic. Harry Connick is charming, adorable and very endearing as ''Birdie's'' (Sandra Bullock) love interest. Sandra Bullock's character goes through a lot of the same things many of us face after a lost love, including the painful humiliation of going home to a small town where everyone knows your business. Gena Rollands is brilliant as Birdie's ecentric, but wise mother.
this movie is a summer wonder. it is sweet, sad, overcoming and pure. just like summer.
This is one of my favorite movies. I love it soooooooo much.
This is a wonderful rainy day, curl up in a blanket and watch movies, movie. Sandra Bullock is wonderful, Mae Whitman (Bernice) is charming, and Gena Rowlands (Momma) is unique. Then who wouldn't mind looking at Harry Connick, Jr. (Justin)either???? The soundtrack is great. I loved everything about this movie.
Ok, this movie was really boring! Its probably sandra bullocks worst movie, shes usually pretty goo though. but if you like sappy feel good movies you would love this. But other than that, it sucked. i was dissapointed.
A great feel good love story. Makes you believe that you can go home again.
I Love This Movie. This Is Way better than The Devine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood.This is a totally heartwarming movie.This movie is so not boring.This is an awesome beyond awesome movie!!!If U don't own this movie you should buy it right away.This movie is sad but wonderful.G2G***Breezy***
Birdie learns on a TV talk show that her husband has been sleeping with her best friend. She packs up her car and drives to her mother’s home in Texas. Her mother still lives in the same house as Birdie grew up. She talks to many people from her past as she tries to figure out her future. This is a story of how some people will do anything to make other happy, when all it does is make everyone miserable. While it does show the dangers of being a people pleaser and trying to be someone you’re not; some will find it hard to see this message past the character of Justin attempting to date a married woman.
