Sandra Bullock
Actress, Speed 2 – Cruise Control (1997)
In the original Speed, Sandra Bullock was gutsy and cute. In Speed 2, she’s gut-heavingly cutesy.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
Bullock is a diminishing asset, having slid from hyped hopeful to near has-been in the space of a few films. That perky playfulness which some found so fresh in her early films has swiftly begun to grate, coming over now as inane self-satisfaction.
(Quentin Curtis, Daily Telegraph)
Actress, Forces of Nature (1999)
It's official: Sandra Bullock is no longer the girl next door - unless, maybe, you're living next door to an anorexia treatment centre. When at one point in Forces of Nature, Bullock stripped down to her underwear, variations of "yuk" and "ugh" was heard from the preview audience with whom I watched this dull amalgam of Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Something Wild. Gone is the pleasant-looking girl of Speed and While You Were Sleeping - replaced by about 85 pounds of skin, bones and nervous energy. (Malene Arpe, eye-onscreen)
Actress, Miss Congeniality (2000)
If there were lingering doubts that the time has come to write an obituary for Sandra Bullock's days as a leading lady, Miss Congeniality should dispel them.
(James Berardinelli, Reelviews)
Actress, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous (2005)
This misguided mess, lamely written and ineptly directed, could be chalked up to Ms. Bullock’s unbreakable record of landing in bad-luck vehicles nobody wants to see.
