The Blind Side, based on the book by Michael Lewis, is the fartwarming sorta true story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family.  According to the trailer, the Touhys help Oher fulfill his potential as a huge black guy by introducing him to football and teaching him to smile and sleep in beds. And then of course there’s coach Bullock’s most important lesson, pretend the quarterback is your new white family.
