Movie Review - All About Steve

Updated on March 26, 2010

All About Steve is a movie with Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper. Mary Horowitz (Sandra Bullock) is the crossword puzzle constructor for the local Sacramennto newspaper. She is very smart, but also slightly odd. She does not have any friends or a life, and she temporarily lives with her parents. When her parents set her up with a blind date, it turns out to be a success for Mary, and she falls head over heels in love with Steve. He, however, does not feel the same way, and he politely tries to tell Mary. She completely misunderstands. As a news cameraman Steve travels all over the US following the news. When Mary loses her job, she starts following Steve around. He is rather terrified of his newest stalker, but his colleagues actually encourage Mary to follow Steve. This leads to all sorts of interesting and funny situations.

This is a great romantic comedy. It is just that, and does not pretend to be anymore. The humour is light, funny, and at times very basic and visual. Some comedies can have very predictable ending, and you know who will fall in love with whom about 5 minutes into the movie. All About Steve knows how to avoid this, and I wasn’t sure about what would happen with Mary and Steve until the movie wanted me to find out.

Sandra Bullock is great as Mary. Although she makes her character fairly weird and socially awkward, she is still very endearing, and you love her from the first scene. Sandra Bullock is at her best in a good comedy, and her comedic timing is perfect, but she also knows not to over-do it

Bradley Cooper plays Steve. He is terrified of Mary, but his character is a little less developed than Mary. Because he plays a fairly normal guy, there is less opportunity for him to excel at comedy. His character is less likeable as well, but in the end he comes around, and manages to give Steve a little more dimension.

The movie is not too special, but still good for what it is. A great movie for a cosy night in, when you want a good laugh and some simple fun. You don’t need your brain to fully function for watching this, so just sit back and enjoy!
