Schmaltz.

Traveller saw 'The Blind Side' with her flattie tonight.

T loves Sandra and couldn't wait to see the movie despite the lacklustre reviews it has been receiving in London.

It seems the city is full of hardened cynics who can't stand a little cheese in their movie.

Reviewers have called it 'patronising' and 'clich├ęd' but T really loved it.

For those of you who haven't heard of it - 'The Blind Side' is a film which is based on the true story of a down-and-out kid who is taken in by a family who proceed to take care of him (cue tissue grabbing). He later becomes a professional in the NFL.

There's something about 'fighting the odds' type stories that really get T - she even finds herself tearing up on The X Factor or Idol when a down-and-out contestant realises their dreams.

Ultimately, the memorable line from The Holiday, "I'm looking for corny in my life," epitomises how Traveller feels about shmaltz.

Love it.
