Storyline

Mary Horowitz writes crossword puzzles for the Sacramento Herald. She's loquacious to a fault. When kids at a career day make fun of her for being single, she accepts a blind date with Steve, the cameraman for a CNN-like news network. Within minutes she decides he's the man for her. He's quickly put off by her constant verbiage and over-the-top advances; he makes an off-hand remark about going on the road with her, and splits. She's moonstruck, writes a sappy crossword puzzle, loses her job, and decides to follow him as the news team crisscrosses the Southwest; Steve's team eggs her on. Then she falls in a mine shaft, and she and Steve become a story; is it a love story? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Come on Sandy, I know you can do better.
12 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Sandra Bullock. I think she's beautiful, hilarious, and thoroughly charming. Above all, I almost always think she has great instincts when it comes to choosing films. She's probably the reason I was willing to give All About Steve a chance. The trailer promised a quirky comedy, and even with the negative reviews, I thought that this film was right up my ally.

Unfortunately, I was dead wrong. The script was a mess, as if it was trying too hard to be irreverent and failing miserably. The character of Mary Horowitz probably read as a sweet if off-kilter heroine, but she came across as annoying and overbearing. This was perhaps the first time I found Sandra Bullock unlikable. Furthermore, there really wasn't a plot, so-to-speak. It ran like a jumble of unfortunate situations one moment and a media satire the next. Bradley Cooper made a charismatic male lead, but he wasn't given very much to work with, and the character of Steve ended up being little more than a foil for Mary to toy with.

If you're looking for an unusual comedy guaranteed to make you laugh, you're better off watching some other film. In the tradition of romantic comedies, the best parts of the film were shown in the trailer. It wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, but it is simply not worth the $10.
