No Vegas Strip in Sandra Bullocks New Film "The Blind Side"

Okay, so maybe yours truly, Sweetie, has a soft spot for chick flicks after all. I mean, my name's Sweetie for God sakes. Don't ask me why I let them give me that pen name. Anyways, I'm a big movie fan, and lately, I've been hearing all this buzz about Sandra Bullock in this new movie called The Blind Side, which is opening in movie theaters in North America tonight.

From what I can tell by the previews, this looks semi-chick flicky. Not your Hugh Grant chick-flick, but more like your Jerry Maguire kind of chick flick. In other words, it's not so much about Hugh Grant. Sorry Hugh, no offense - I'd rather watch Jennifer Aniston's chick flicks, although Sarah Jessica Parker isn't that bad either (her and Hugh are starring in this new film, Did You Hear About the Morgan's?).

Now, I'm never one to get all convinced about what critics are saying, especially when they're being quoted in the movie preview itself - you know something like "One of the top ten movies of the year", said by none other than Larry King. So, when I heard that Sandra Bullocks performance in The Blind Side is getting nods for an Oscar nomination, I thought, wait a second.

Don't get me wrong, I think Sandra Bullock is a great actress. One of the funniest, hottest actresses in show business, no doubt. And while I don't deny this could very well be the best performance of her career, the previews simply don't make the film seem like it's the right vehicle for "Best Actress" accolades. But then again, previews hardly ever do movies justice do they?

So, what does all this have to do with online gambling. Well, hardly anything. Although, upon investigating a little deeper into Sandra Bullock's career via iMDP Pro, I realized that the follow up to Bullock's wildly successful Miss Congeniality, fittingly titled Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, is actually set in good'ol Las Vegas, and is certainly worthy to be listed with the other flicks on the OCS gambling movies page. By the way, anyone who is a big movie buff or works in the entertainment industry, might like to sign up with iMDB Pro. It costs like $100 a year, but gives you unheard of access to "Hollywood" business, including stars agent contacts, production companies, budgeting info, salaries and fascinating trivia tidbits....but I digress once again).

Going back to Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, there's some great footage of hallmark locations on The Strip, including the Venetian Hotel, and what is one of the most memorable scenes ever shot at and making use of the pirate ships outside of Treasure Island Resort and Casino (although I'll never understand why Bullock's character doesn't slip out of the showgirl outfit before getting what...or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part).
