Director Phil Traill and screenwriter Kim Barker should take some credit for attempting something original, but ultimately what they come up with is an ensemble cast of non-entities and the overriding feeling that they're exploiting the lead character.

A handful of wry TV news graphics provide welcome amusement, but Bullock has never been worse and the rest of the cast are left to solve the puzzle of their own presence.

Romcom? Send-up? Romcom send-up? No one seems to know, least of all director Phil Traill, whose failure to deliver a consistent tone - or, y'know, any laughs - leaves his capable cast hung out to dry.

The film is such a misjudged farrago that it makes Miss Congeniality seem like a masterpiece.

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

This weirdly unfunny comedy is like Clint Eastwood's Play Misty For Me seen through the eyes of the stalker, and played unsuccessfully for laughs.

A witty satire on TV news? No. An inspiring lesson about following your heart? Nope. The worst comedy you'll see all year? Oh yes.

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.

Anthony Quinn
Independent (UK)
January 15, 2010
In which Sandra Bullock flails through another non-com of an awfulness she seems unerringly inclined to repeat.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
Allan Hunter
Daily Express (UK)
January 15, 2010
A comedy so irritating and cheerless that you wonder if the cast were blackmailed into appearing.

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 terrible movies were car crashes, this 101-minute horror-show is a coachload of orphans slamming headlong into the Hoover Dam - and 2010 is unlikely to serve up anything worse.

Daily Record (UK)
January 15, 2010
From the outset the film swings from one lame gag to another and the usually spot-on Bullock fails to find her groove.

As Hollywood's most box-office-friendly female star, surely it's about time Sandra Bullock started challenging herself with something more worthy of her comic talents.

Were you thinking "deaf kids", "sinkhole"? No? I defy you to write a dumber screenplay.

'I'm going to eat you like a mountain lion,' says the sex-starved Bullock as she attacks Cooper in his van, moments after meeting him, in one of several appalling scenes that represent director Phil Traill's idea of cute.

Her most irritating and unfunniest film to date.

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
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5

Despite the cringe early on there is a validation about finding your emotional and intellectual match, not just the fantasy dreamboat.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The taint of desperation lies so heavily on the entire exercise.
