Bullock, as both co-producer and star, makes sure All About Steve sparkles with easy laughs.
| Original Score: B
All About Steve is survivable. You'll never see such passion for a crossword anywhere else.
| Original Score: 3/5
All About Steve won't appeal to everyone but it's by no means the disaster its terrible reviews are making it out to be and is ultimately worth seeing for its attempt to do something different.
If it didn't come from a major studio, I would think the film is a satire of romantic comedies, or at least some kind of avant-garde experiment in testing the limits of audience identification
| Original Score: 3/4
[A] refreshingly quirky comedy.
Not without its good bits. Even if you have to watch some supposedly nice guys be mean to get to them.
It's a sort of anti-romance romantic comedy, and though uneven, it's a lot smarter than most films in the genre.
Despite her downward-tilted head and her nattering ways, Mary really does want to connect. Watching her realize this isn't deep but it is sweet.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Bullock, easing into her mid-40s with box-office mojo intact, remains the star attraction as the annoyingly endearing Mary. You simply can't imagine another actor of her stature pulling it off.
Mary's supposed to be a plucky free spirit, but mostly she's a chatty bore who's emotionally clueless.
A head-scratcher of a comedy starring the increasingly enigmatic Sandra Bullock.
On paper, a crazy romcom starring Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper could only be a good thing. Wrong.
| Original Score: 1/5
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?
Kooky? Hardly. Cringing? Most assuredly.
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.
| Original Score: 1/4
Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy review.
| Original Score: 0/4
Just when it seems All About Steve couldn't grow any more insufferable, it turns strangely sentimental.
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.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
The film's complete failure to engage on any level, much less comedic, lies entirely at the feet of Bullock.
A disappointingly disposable romantic comedy...
| Original Score: 2/4
