Movie Review: All About Steve
Sandra Bullock plays the part of Mary Horowitz, a quirky, love-starved, crossword puzzle constructor who, attacks a hunky cable news cameraman, Steve, during a record short blind date. Her character is not at all believable. She's supposed to be overly intelligent, yet she cannot see how foolishly she consistently behaves.
Many mishaps occur during adventurous travels as Steve chases news stories, and Mary chases Steve.
The film is filled with close-ups of Bullock smiling and with close-ups of Bullock laughing with her head thrown back. If you are a big fan of her pretty face, this movie is worth your dollars. Johnny and I did laugh--and laugh loudly during several spots. However, there was way too much needless profanity, and the plot is a weak one. For these reasons, I'd say wait to rent it or better yet, see it for free on TV.
