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>

All about the comedy and the commentary on society
28 August 2010 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"All About Steve" is, in fact, not all about Steve (Bradley Cooper), nor is it about Mary (Sandra Bullock). To be obtuse, it's about everyone and everything.

Mary is full of fun, useless facts and interesting vocabulary words. But for all her book and dictionary smarts, she lacks in professional and societal decorum. Hence, why she thinks it's appropriate to take a journey across the country to find love with Steve. As I said before, it's not all about Steve. It's about Mary trying to find love and meaning in her life, Steve thinking it's all about him, and the media making it all about themselves. It's a very smart comedy with insightful commentary into the selfish nature of society and the state of today's news media.

For us, "All About Steve" is all about the comedy. I laughed all the way through. All the characters are funny, highlighted with Thomas Haden Church and Jason Jones as news reporters. I recommend it for its hilarious and yet intelligent thoughts, and its potential to increase your general knowledge and vocabulary.
