All About Steve Reviews

Francesca Jarvis
FILMINK (Australia)

A sad excuse for a film which meshes too many ideas without sticking to one, leaving Sandra Bullock once again flailing in a ridiculous role.

All About Steve, an unfunny, annoying, badly written, badly acted comic fiasco, may be the worst movie in Bullock's career.

Corey Hall
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

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

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

An actress should never, ever, be asked to run beside a van in red disco boots for more than about half a block, and then only if her child is being kidnapped.

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?

Somewhere, like the pea in the bed of the princess, is an idea that could be interesting. Unfortunately, it's smothered in 20 mattresses of awful and 20 more of dumb.

September 3, 2009

Frantic, inane, moronic and obnoxious, All About Steve ranks among the very worst movies of the year. The decade, even.

There's nothing wrong with All About Steve that a rewrite couldn't fix, as long as the rewrite involved a different writer, a different character and a different story.

Make no mistake, this is one mess of a film and yet if you forgive it some of its bewildering failings there is still a weird charm to its madness.

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

Sandra Bullock bulldozes the line between a socially awkward character and an annoying human being in a monstrous turkey that can genuinely make a claim to being the worst film of the year

Sandra Bullock turns in an excruciatingly kooky performance in this ill-conceived stalker romance.

One of the leading candidates for worst film of 2009.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

There's no footing in reality. Nothing about it feels authentic: not the blathering Mary, not the lifeless secondary characters, not the bromide-happy dialogue or the plot that twists less often than it spasms.

A total misfire from the first scene to the last.

Keith Cohen
Entertainment Spectrum

The movie is trying to show the power of words and that there is no such thing as a "normal" person. It should garner a boatload of nominations for Razzie Awards that are given to the worst movies of the year.

Avi Offer
NYC Movie Guru

A painfully bland, vapid, irritating and consistently preposterous comedy that's low on laughs and satirical bite.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Amounts to one compelling character surrounded by a bunch of stuff that's not so great.
