Sandra Bullock is one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood. A darling among critics and audiences, she has demonstrated a chameleonic ability in dealing with rom-com, action films, dramas and even horror / science fiction films like those of 2018 Bird box.
But a long and illustrious career like Sandra Bullock’s doesn’t come without an occasional bombshell. And in her case, her worst movie seems to be her first. Luckily this colossal flop didn’t set her tone for the rest of her career.
A Hollywood success story
Although Sandra Bullock began following her opera singer mother, she embarked on an acting career. After college, she moved to New York to explore theater work. But her fate had something else in store for her. Television and film opportunities have arrived, including her roles in Demolition Man (1993) and Lotta Ernest Hemingway (1993), according to IMDb.
Films that helped catapult Bullock to stardom include Speed (1994), The blind side (2009), The proposal (2009), The heat (2013), and Severity (2013).
Celebrity Net Worth estimates Sandra Bullock’s net worth is $ 250 million. She also earned a spot on Guinness World Records as the highest paid actress in the world.
Sandra Bullock’s first film was bombed at the box office
Before Sandra Bullock cemented her status as a Hollywood titan, she appeared in a 1989 film that failed spectacularly.
According to IMDb, Who Shot Pat? is a “coming-of-age tale” about high school life in the late 1950s in Brooklyn. The plot revolves around interracial tensions at school and the cast includes David Edwin Knight, Kevin Otto and a young and aspiring Sandra Bullock.
The R-rated comedy was a commercial flop. Box office numbers worldwide were a sad $ 2,343 – yes, two thousand three hundred forty-three dollars – IMDb reports.
Adding insult to injury, Rotten Tomatoes displays an audience score of 9%. Reviewers’ comments include “terrible movie that should never have been released” and “a great movie to share with a friend … and I hope they NEVER return it.”
This disaster seemed to signal a dead end for Bullock’s colleagues in the project, Looper suggests. Many of her cohorts in the film did not transition to other traditional acting roles. But luckily for her, the terrible movie didn’t hold back her career.
What is Sandra Bullock doing now?
Interestingly, the one film that still embarrasses Sandra Bullock is not Who Shot Pat?
According to the Independent, the actor regrets being back for the sequel to his hit film Speed1997 Speed 2: cruise control. Fans didn’t like it as much as the original. And in hindsight, in a way she wishes she hadn’t pursued him.
If you want to see Bullock on screen right now, take a look The lost city, in theaters and on Paramount +. She stars in the action / adventure film opposite Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum and Daniel Radcliffe. Bullock also helped produce the film. In fact, she has produced or executive produced many other films, including The Unforgivable (2021), Bird box (2018), and Our brand is the crisis (2015).
However, Bullock was open about taking a break from acting. The 57-year-old says she plans to spend some quality time with her family. And loyal fans, no doubt, will eagerly await her return.
