WALLACE: 5

SOLA: 8

DEE: 11 - Again, Bullock clearly had agents that hated her. Surprisingly one of her better rom-coms. Too bad Hugh Grant sucks!

SOLA: 10

DEREK: 11

DEE: 12 - Never been a fan. Really need to know who Bullock's agent has been for her entire career and why they only fought to give her roles in bad movies.

WALLACE: 12

ANDY: 13 - I've never actually seen this lmao but it's super trendy to hate Crash so I'm ranking it low just for that reason hahah

DEE: 14 - The worst Best Picture winner ever? Definitely. The fact that even the director admits that this was far from the best movie that year still sends me!!!

ELLIOTT: 15

ANDY: 4 - A movie I grew up watching 5 billion times, Sandra is charming as ever and this is a perfect representation of her slaying the 90s romcom world.

DIANA: 1

WALLACE: 1 - One of my favorite movies that I have watched multiple times. This movie was really great and definitely warmed my heart.. and may have made me tear up. Sandra is amazing and dynamic as Leigh Anne Tuohy and also won an Oscar for this role.

ANDY: 2 - The movie is quite cheesy and doesn't age super well due to the pretty obvious white savior narrative that drives the plot, but this was a career defining moment for Sandra that gave her a much deserved Oscar and I adore her in this.

CHRIS: 2

SOLA: 3

DEREK: 5 - Best actress. Whatever gets her the trophy lol.

4.77

DEE: 1 - Duh. The way she should have been stripped of her Oscar for The Blind Side, which was rightfully deserved by Sidibe, and actually awarded for this movie instead.

DEREK: 1 - Robbed in the film rankdown, one of my favorite movies of all time.

ELLIOTT: 1

ANDY: 3 - You could argue that this is Sandra's best acting performance and I wouldn't even disagree with you. She IS this movie.

2.33

ANDY: 1 - Not her personal best acting performance, but this movie is too iconic not to put at #1. And Sandra is a huge reason why this movie is so amazing and hilarious and legendary.

SOLA: 1

CHRIS: 1

DEE: 2 - Gracie Lou Freebush is iconic.

WALLACE: 2 - Sandra is hilarious here.
