|This off-the-wall comedy about a blind date gone hilariously wrong. When eccentric, but lovable, mary gets set up with steve, a news channel cameraman, she falls hard. He does not. Mary decides to follow steve on a cross-country hunt for breaking news and soon finds herself entangled in the story.|
Editor's NoteA brilliant crossword-puzzle designer travels across the country in hopes of convincing a CNN cameraman that the pair is meant to be together, only to find her quest taking an unexpected turn in this romantic comedy starring Sandra Bullock, Bradley Cooper, and Thomas Haden Church. Despite the fact that she has only gone on one short date with the man, a love-struck puzzle creator becomes enamored with a successful cameraman and follows him to a series of media events in hopes that the feeling is mutual. While she is saddened to discover that it is not, she soon becomes involved with a group of misfits who selflessly accept her at face value. First-time feature filmmaker Phil Traill directs a screenplay penned by LICENSE TO WED scribe Kim Barker.

|It has been a very good year for Bradley Cooper and Sandra Bullock. He starred in one of 2009's certified smashes, the Vegas-themed laugh riot The Hangover. She reestablished her commercial credibility by turning the summer rom-com The Proposal into an honest-to-goodness hit. So putting them together in another studio comedy should equal big time box office gold, right? Well, not exactly. That's because All About Steve is a real risk for all the talent involved, both behind and in front of the camera. This surreal creation is built around one of the most maddening and borderline unbearable characters ever conceived: Mary Horowitz (Bullock) is a nerdy cruciverbalist. She creates crossword puzzles for a living....read the full review|

|I’ve adored Sandra Bullock ever since she played a nerdy scientist in Love Potion No. 9. She further charmed me with her roles in Speed, While You Were Sleeping, Hope Floats, Forces of Nature, Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality, and, most recently, The Proposal. Heck, I even liked her in Two if By Sea, In Love and War, and The Lake House. I always thought she could do no wrong. Until I watched All About Steve, that is. Any charm Bullock might have been able to muster in this film is lost in silly scenarios, frat-boy humor, and, for the most part, mean characters....read the full review|

Customer Reviews of All About Steve
I only now getting around to viewing this movie that "won" Sandra Bullock her Razzie. & I believe that the Razzie voters were mistaken. I feel that Bullock did a nice job of playing a quirky, annoying person. Surely there were plenty of performances far more deserving of this award.

This movie was funny! There were plenty of belly laughs, and none of them depended on grossing-out the viewer. This is a grown-up movie, and relies on your understanding of personality, human foibles, and the silliness of the media to generate humor. My recommendation is that you DO NOT read any synopsis of the plot...go into it cold. This will ensure that the insane turns this movie takes have their full kick!
