28 Days isn’t really a comedy, though it has many black-comic moments, and it opens with a wedding sequence that is funny in a horrifying way. In it, Sandra Bullock proves to be a candidate for the Worst. Bridesmaid. Ever. She and her boyfriend (Dominic West) are barely functioning alcoholics who live to party; perhaps their equally boozy friends are too wasted to tell them what boors they are. They show up late to Bullock’s sister’s wedding, with Bullock looking disheveled.
At the reception, the couple’s dancing gets out of control, and Bullock spins butt-first into the wedding cake, which hits the floor. Determined to make things right, she tries to call a local bakery, steals the bridal limousine, and drives it right into someone’s living room. No wonder she spends the rest of the movie in rehab.
