Critic Reviews for All About Steve

All Critics (135) | Top Critics (37) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (126) | DVD (2)

All About Steve is a messy assemblage of clumsy sight gags, winking reaction shots and disingenuous populist genuflection to the idea that there's no such thing as normal. We all see a little bit of Mary in ourselves, don't we? Don't we?

Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy review.

New York Post
Top Critic

Just when it seems All About Steve couldn't grow any more insufferable, it turns strangely sentimental.

Full Review… | May 28, 2013
Associated Press
Top Critic

Mary is a memorable comic creation for all the wrong reasons: glibly written, offensively characterised and bizarrely dressed, she's the classic screwball ditz taken to grotesque and at times unwatchable extremes.

Time Out
Top Critic

Packaged as a romantic comedy but devoid of comedy or romance, this baffling train wreck stars Sandra Bullock as a tediously kooky constructor of crossword puzzles for a Sacramento newspaper.

[A] refreshingly quirky comedy.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

Mary's supposed to be a plucky free spirit, but mostly she's a chatty bore who's emotionally clueless.

Full Review… | May 28, 2013
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

A head-scratcher of a comedy starring the increasingly enigmatic Sandra Bullock.

Full Review… | May 28, 2013

Bullock, as both co-producer and star, makes sure All About Steve sparkles with easy laughs.

Full Review… | May 28, 2013
Cleveland Plain Dealer

On paper, a crazy romcom starring Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper could only be a good thing. Wrong.

Empire Magazine

Kooky? Hardly. Cringing? Most assuredly.

Austin Chronicle

It's so bad, you might feel a little sorry for Bullock -- but don't take pity on her. Watching All About Steve will only make you feel worse.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Let's say you're the kind of person who has a morbid curiosity for films that defy logic, the ones that blow your mind with their badness. Then I can wholeheartedly recommend you see this one.

All About Steve is survivable. You'll never see such passion for a crossword anywhere else.

Full Review… | October 29, 2010

The film's complete failure to engage on any level, much less comedic, lies entirely at the feet of Bullock.

Full Review… | August 9, 2010
sbs.com.au

A disappointingly disposable romantic comedy...

Full Review… | April 8, 2010
Reel Film Reviews

All About Steve is constructed as a romantic comedy, but Mary's tireless, stalker-like behavior suggests that this ought to be a horror film.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

It's baffling that some of our favourite actors would sign up for this slightly creepy, desperately unfunny twaddle. Don't encourage them by watching it.

January 22, 2010
Heat Magazine

This deeply unfunny comedy misfires at every turn.

Shadows on the Wall

One of the ropiest would-be screwball comedies conceived recently.

Full Review… | January 15, 2010
Times [UK]

A film that looks as if it's been through 1,001 test screenings, script drafts and reshoots, each unfunnier and more muddled than the last.

Guardian

Whatever disturbed and previously untapped audience this is meant to find, it's certainly novel.

Audience Reviews for All About Steve

It really is a wonder how these scripts get a green-light. Mild laughs. Cooper is hot. Mostly offensive jokes though.

Okay, I am not going to say this was a good movie, but I still don't get the hate on it. I actually kind of liked Sandra's weird girl character here. It gets dull in the middle, and it's not the happy ending you go into a rom com expecting, but it had a message of self acceptance to it that I really liked. There is no big make over moment, and it doesn't matter, because she was cute all along - in her own way. I also liked DJ Qualls here and Thomas Haden Church.

Loved it! Don't understand why Sandra Bullock got a Razzie for this? Amazing film and so funny. She plays a bunny boiler extremely well and yet funny too. It's such a hard thing to do and she does it perfectly. Sends out a postive message and the end is magnificent. A must see! Ignore the bad reviews. A great film!

Not much to say... other than it takes 1.5 hours to get through it. To say it is a cute movie is strech.
