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
Sandra Bullock won a "Razzie" award for Worst Actress, and showed up to the annual Golden Raspberry Awards event to claim her prize. She brought a wagon full of DVDs of this film for the three hundred attendees and asked them to watch or re-watch the movie. If in fact the audience decided she was NOT the Worst Actress and changed their minds, Bullock promised to come back to the Razzies next year, turn back in her award and buy drinks for everybody.

Ended up loving this movie to bits. It takes a good person to appreciate the main character's quirks
I truly appreciated this film. I appreciated enough to want to really thank the director and the writers for making this film. Being an INFP (myers-briggs) it spoke to me so much. Although I'm kind of sure she's somewhat an ENFP. I really really liked this film. Not gonna lie I shed a lot of tears during the ending.
I really did not expect to like this film so much. I feel like some viewers might not be able to sit through the first part as I also thought she was a little overboard but the occasional comedic bits were funny enough to keep you watching. I certainly laughed out loud a lot. Good thing I was alone at home while I watched haha
Also I just really have to say it's a bummer this movie got a raspberry award. Because this movie is kind of like those that are so different from you, that because it's a truth for other people you just gotta appreciate it for what it is.
This movie was a truth for me. Although I'm not as overboard as Mary, I see her as someone unique with a special type of enthusiasm. It takes a good person to appreciate her quirks.
I started off unsure about liking this movie, I ended up loving it to bits.
