Hope Floats. C-

For some reason, Forest Whitaker, always one to take on an intriguing project, decided to direct the generic Hope Floats, and the result is pretty much what you'd expect it to be. The movie stars Sandra Bullock as a mom who, with her daughter, leaves her cheating husband and heads to Texas to escape her troubles. The movie is every bit as schmaltzy as its title, and, though it doesn't intend to, makes Texas appear far more weepy than it really is. I liked Bullock, but nothing else in the movie.
