All About Steve

More so a comedy, than romantic comedy, All about Steve stars Sandra Bullock as Mary Horowitz, a quirky and eccentric crossword constructor who in her mid 30ís has failed to secure a successfully love life.

Unfortunately for Mary, her social interactions with others leave a lot to be desired that is only highlighted by her bright red boots which she wears religiously. Mary also has an answer for everything that comes from her mastery of crosswords and when her parents organise a blind date for her, she reluctantly agrees, knowing what the outcome will be.

However, when her blind date arrives, Mary is smitten over the choice by her parents, hunky cable news cameraman Steve (Bradley Cooper). Unfortunately our little freakish vixen decides to throw herself at Steve who is stunned by the forceful nature of Mary and thankfully for him, their sex act is broken from a call from work.

Steve manages to get away with his life but leaves Mary wanting more and when she inadvertently loses her job as crossword constructor for her local paper, she goes on a stalking road trip in order to find the man of her dreams. Once Mary does find Steve, it doesnít help that his partner, reporter Hartman Hughes (Thomas Haden Church) fills Mary full of ideas about how smitten Steve is over her and this unfortunately leads her to disaster in this quirky comedy about love and life.

All about Steve sounds great on paper, however as a film, it failed to deliver any real laughs, even though it was perfectly cast. The actors attempted to give their best but the script unfortunately does not back them up which is a shame. Bullock is perfect as the quirky crossword constructor and is a joy to watch, even though she seems to be playing someone a little younger then herself but funny enough, she manages to pull it off.

This presentation is 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 that boasts good video and audio but nothing spectacular. The movie even comes with substandard special features which include  a gag reel and deleted/alternative scenes. At the end of the day, this is more of a rent on a Saturday night if youíre desperate for your Bullock fixes!
