NEW YORK (AP) _ Sandra Bullock is grateful she hit the big time in the thriller ``Speed.″ She’s just as grateful the sequel bombed.

``I’ll be the first one to tell you it was a stinker,″ Bullock says of ``Speed 2″ in Sunday’s Parade magazine. ``The first time I saw it I just kind of laughed. ... But after the high of the first, having it not do well was a blessing in a way. It gave me the ammo to be able to say, `No! Let’s not do it that way.‴

Bullock has starred in such films as ``While You Were Sleeping,″ ``A Time to Kill″ and ``In Love and War.″ Upcoming is ``Hope Floats″ and ``Practical Magic,″ co-starring Nicole Kidman.

The 33-year-old charmer is an dog lover still mourning the apparent theft of her beloved Jack Russell terrier, Luigi.

``I can’t get another Jack Russell,″ she said. ``I have four other dogs, mostly found on the street.″
