    Bullock, easing into her mid-40s with box-office mojo intact, remains the star attraction as the annoyingly endearing Mary. You simply can't imagine another actor of her stature pulling it off.

    Manages to be both toothless and tasteless in its satire of TV news sensationalism.

    The screenplay by Kim Barker requires Bullock to behave in an essentially disturbing way that began to wear on me. It begins as merely peculiar, moves on to miscalculation and becomes seriously annoying.

    A dippy clunker like All About Steve has no purpose other than as a challenge: If you laden a usually charming A-lister with a thoroughly off-putting, unhinged character, can she claw her way to likability? The short answer is no. The long answer is, what in the world was Bullock, who also produced the movie, thinking?
  5. 20
    A talented director might have made Bullock seem like a comic genius, but Phil Traill has no control over tone, leaving the audience unsure whether to laugh or cry.

    How do you make a movie about a protagonist so profoundly irritating that even her loved ones barely tolerate her? And how do you avoid annoying audiences to the point of distraction in the process?

    Seriously, I have never understood why this film has received so lousy reviews. I loved the film from the first minute. Sandra Bullock's character is very strange indeed but she has a good heart and the right intentions. For me it's a perfect film about an underdog an outsider who rises to the occassion. I have seen this film several times by now and still don't get the negative reviews. Trust me, give this film a chance! Expand

    It really wasn't that bad. I don't quite understand all of the hate. It wasn't all that funny, but it wasn't a "Gigantic piece of donkey **** or "the most pathetic attempt at humor i have ever seen" or even "sewerific". I could sit through it, and it was kind of fun. Expand

    Ouch. This film hurts. Instead of giving the main character appraisals, she is mocked into being insane and moronic. So many plot holes, bad casting and a completely and utterly creepy and disturbing tone. Avoid. Now. Expand

    What we end up with here is a perplexing situation: The film makes Bullock's character so out-of-touch and so socially awkward that it goes from charmingly quirky to frightening and pitiful. We can't identify with the character because a normal person would react in same way Cooper does, and thus we end up pitying her instead. We also can't laugh at her when the movie tells us to because that makes us feel cruel for laughing at someone so pitiful. This is an awful, awful movie. Expand

    A disgrace to movies everywhere. I thought the Blind Side was bad. Geez, this is pathetic on every level. It is a sad time in the film industry when this gets produced. Expand

    I've seen a lot of movies in my time and I guess I tend to favour a good comedy, hey, I love the odd bad comedy, but this is neither, this is the movie equivalent of being bled out, I would rather swim in a pool of razor blades than watch this poor attempt at comedy again, truly terrible stuff Expand
