'28 Days' (2000)

This drama proved that Bullock had the power to take on a more serious subject. Playing a recovering alcoholic, Bullock mixed wry comedy with the dramatic nature of the film. Image: Columbia Pictures

'Miss Congeniality' (2000)

It's the film that Bullock is most recognized for, and for good reason: it's awesome. Bullock is at her best playing an undercover FBI agent who must pose as Miss New Jersey in order to infiltrate a crime in the pageant world. Bullock gets the bad guy, and "really does want world peace". Image: Warner Bros. Pictures

'Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood' (2002)

This film — based on the popular series of novels — is an ensemble film that will seriously tug at your heartstrings and will probably make you cry. You've been warned. Image: Warner Bros.

'Crash' (2004)

This Oscar-Winning film proved that Bullock has the chops to play a character that isn't quite so likable. As a borderline racist in this film about intersecting lives and prejudice, Bullock wows as a woman whose own racial issues come out when she becomes the victim of a car-jacking. Image: Lionsgate

'The Proposal' (2009)

This romantic comedy about a workaholic who has to marry her assistant in order to keep her job (just go with it), features Bullock at her absolute funniest. And Reynolds isn't bad, either.

'The Blind Side' (2009)

The film that won Bullock her Best Actress Oscar tells the story of a tough Southern football mom who takes in a homeless teen. Image: Warner Bros.

'The Heat' (2013)

The just-released film -- which pairs Bullock with Melissa McCarthy -- is one of the funniest female-driven buddy comedies in recent memory. And there may be a sequel! Image: 20th Century Fox
