Movie Review: All About Steve December 23, 2009

Netflix Synopsis: While Steve (Bradley Cooper) would have to disagree, socially inept Mary (Sandra Bullock) thinks he’s her true love and shamelessly pursues him around the country, egged on by Steve’s wingman, the sexist and mean Hartman (Thomas Haden Church). But the two men start feeling guilty for their callousness when they realize there’s more to Mary than her outrageous boots and wacky statements. Phil Traill directs this comedic tale, which also stars Ken Jeong.

Can you say awkward? If this movie wasn’t so funny, it would be sad. Sandra Bullock plays a hilariously odd character that is super book smart but couldn’t read a person in a social situation if her life depended on it. The comedic scenes that ensue because of this disconnect keep the movie moving along. At some point, it feels like the movie gets repetitive, but the addition of new characters keeps it interesting. Thomas Haden Church is one hilarious actor and is the perfect pot-stirrer in this film.
