All About Steve Reviews
Although i like its originality and its not like your typical jennifer aniston romcom it still doesnt interest you enough to watch it again or remember it!
Sandra bullock is amazing and i do like her character in this, she is vaguely amusing in this film, but when you have bullock who can do the comedy and bradly cooper who are both funny it makes you wonder why this isnt!
on the case it says what happens when the proposal meets the hangover ? two hilarious movies produce a poor and unfunny movie!
All About Steve is another in the line of road trip movies which seem to come and go in popularity as time goes by. Cooper just did sort of one with The Hangover. Last year's Miss March was probably the worst of the bunch. It follows the same plan of a quest. It could be The Lord of the Rings or it could be National Lampoon's Vacation, they all have one goal- to get where their going and what they're after.
The problem with All About Steve is that Mary just gets annoying after awhile. Instead of a quest movie, it turns itself into Smokey and the Bandit: we want Steve to get the hell away from her as soon as possible. We root for Steve as he rushes away sporting a fake porn star mustache. This is where the film fails. Fortunately the banter between Cooper, Thomas Haden Church, and Ken Jeong (who is also in every movie now) fill the gaps that are caused by the film not quite knowing what the hell it is.
Sandra Bullock is always so much fun to watch as she can go from tomboy to sexy to shrew (a la "The Proposal" which was no great fare). The common denominator between most of her characters is that they are always smart and usually quite strong.
Here she plays "smart," but only in the book sense. As for everything else-she gets it all wrong. She is a "geek," but takes it to the level of psychotic and it is actually painful to watch her in this role and not just because of the boots.
There is no chemistry at all between Bullock and her male lead played by Bradley Cooper (that was at least one redeeming point in "The Proposal"). Her character is simply unbelievable and I am confused as to why she took this role unless it was to try on some clown shoes for a change (and again, I don't mean the boots here either...ok the boots too).
Thomas Hayden Church is the only well-cast character in this movie and his talents are wasted here as well.
If you want to see Bullock in light fare go elsewhere for it because this one will only make you feel for her and perhaps taste the last meal you ate.
Convinced that a CNN cameraman is her true love, an eccentric crossword puzzler (Bullock) trails him as he travels all over the country, hoping to convince him that they belong together.
I of course loved this movie. Sandra Bullock, being one of my favorite actresses, can do no wrong in my eyes. I love everything she does. This movie was by far one of the funniest movies she has done. Thomas Haden Church, was hilarious. Bradley Cooper was funny as well (loved his 70's porno inspired disguise, so funny). Him and Sandra were good together. Love to see them in another romantic comedy. This movie wasn't only about the laughs, it has a really good message in it. Plus it doesn't have the normal romantic comedy ending that you are use to. So I really liked that. Not every story has to be a happy ending. But in this case it was a happy ending in its own way. People who are fans of Sandra Bullock, and her movies like I am, are going to love this movie and the message it is giving. Definitely wanna see this movie again.
In this PG-13-rated screwball comedy, Bullock falls head over heels for Cooper's TV cameraman after one blind date and follows him and his crew (Thomas Hayden Church, Ken Jeong) around the country.
Sandra Bullock has officially made the worst movie on her CV. Her character is supposed to be a highly intelligent crossword puzzle writer who is mistaken for a kooky stalker. There is no mistake about it-the character IS a kooky stalker. And sadly, Bradley's Cooper's wooden cameraman is so uninteresting that he isn't worth a 'hello' let alone stalking. It is so awful that Rhonda Shear would have passed it up for bad movie showcase USA Up All Night back in the day.
Bottom line: All about nothing.
