Sandra Bullock Careens to Number 1

According to Entertainement Weekly, Sandra Bullock's new romantic comedy, "The Proposal," was number 1 at the box office over the weekend. Good for her. She seems like a nice person.

But thinking about it, she hasn't been in a movie that I really liked since "Demolition Man," which was released more than 15 years ago. (15 years!) Maybe she doesn't make films for my demographic. But both Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes have each had several hits since then. You know that your career has hit a long dry patch if even Wesley Snipes ("Blade" films) has lapped you several times over.

It's as if her career since "Speed" has been a bus, which she fears has a hidden bomb that would explode if she starred in a hit. (Just picture her collapsing with relief on the steering wheel after the release of "Miss Congeniality 2"......)
