Product Description

The Proposal's" Sandra Bullock; Oscar nominee Thomas Haden Church; and "The Hangover's" Bradley Cooper star in a hilarious tale of a woman who; after falling hard for a guy; thinks they're an item; unfortunately; he thinks she's stalking him! Bullock's Mary Horowitz is a cruciverbalist - a crossword puzzle constructor. Her brain spins at warp speed with an endless stream of arcane information. She can come up with the perfect word - and dozens with the same meaning - at a moment's notice; but "normal" behavior eludes her. Take; for example; the fact that she lives with eccentric parents. Or her inability to engage in social intercourse without dropping a litany of twenty-dollar words and unleashing a tsunami of trivia. Then; there's the matter of her omnipresent fire-engine-red go-go boots. For Mary; nothing is typical; especially relationships. When she is set up on a blind date with handsome cable-news cameraman Steve; Mary thinks the chemistry is undeniable - that Steve is "the one." Steve; on the other hand; thinks Mary is crazy. Mary; who just knows she's found her soul mate; decides to do anything and go anywhere to be with him. She begins to pursue Steve relentlessly as he crisscrosses the country; covering breaking news stories. Mary's escalating infatuation with Steve is encouraged by the self-serving actions of news reporter Hartman Hughes (Thomas Haden Church); who enjoys torturing his insolent cameraman at every opportunity. With Mary never far behind and Hartman urging her on; Steve becomes increasingly unhinged. But when Mary becomes embroiled in the news story of the year; Steve and Hartman begin to see her differently. Hartman is plagued by guilt; knowing his game of one-upmanship with Steve has placed her squarely in harms way; while Steve is feeling his own pangs of remorse at his callous behavior. Despite the media storm surrounding her; Mary with her upbeat; unaffected manner brings together a small community of new friends. And all who encounter Mary will realize that sometimes the ones who don't fit in are the ones who really stand out.]Woman pulls out all the stops to land the man of her dreams.]0]]Phil Traill]]]Sandra Bullock]Bradley Cooper]Thomas Haden Church]Ken Jeong]DJ Qualls]Katy Mixon]Howard Hesseman]Beth Grant]Keith David]

A hunky TV news cameraman named Steve (Bradley Cooper, hot off of surprise hit The Hangover) gets stalked by a lonely crossword puzzle creator named Mary (Sandra Bullock, in a career resurgence after The Proposal) in the comedy All About Steve. Although only one screenwriter is credited, All About Steve feels like it's been clumsily patched together from a dozen different versions of itself. The story makes no sense and there's very little that resembles recognizable human behavior...and yet, for that very reason, the movie exerts a perverse fascination. Some parts are actually funny--Thomas Haden Church (Sideways), as a reporter hungry for an anchor position, unleashes arias of manipulative babble--but most of the movie is just baffling. The filmmakers seem to think they're sending a heartwarming message about embracing yourself, no matter how out of the mainstream you may be. Unfortunately, all of the "quirky" people come across as brain-damaged because they're not really people, they're emblems of "uniqueness." Mary is meant to be endearingly eccentric, yet her social ineptness verges on schizophrenia or severe autism. At every turn, All About Steve unintentionally reminds the viewer that someone wrote this, that someone thought this bit of behavior or this turn of phrase would somehow make us like this character or find them charming. Unfortunately, that someone was very, very off the mark. The result--seeing the bald intentions under the failed result--is a jarring yet oddly compelling experience. Also featuring DJ Qualls (Hustle & Flow) and Katy Mixon (Eastbound & Down). --Bret Fetzer

People Magazine gave this a 1/2 star out of 5. It truly wasn't that bad.

Here are my thoughts.

Sandra Bullock's character is awkward and that is an understatement. This still-at-home-with-mom-and-dad crossword-puzzle-creator is an unique blend of Cliff Clavin (Cheers) Napoleon Dynamite and Pippi Longstocking. I struggled with whether to like Mary and cheer her on or to just be annoyed and laugh at her when she fell into the big hole. I ended up doing both.

Basic plot: Mary, due to outside pressures, thinks she needs to take her one last shot of normalcy by embracing (understatement) a blind date. When he comes to pick her up and turns out to be "hot" she does this creepy silent stare thing and runs back upstairs to put some sexy on. A truly awkward scene follows when she jumps Steve (Bradley Cooper), not after an okay date but before they even pull away from her folks' house. At first Steve is dazzled by the skin and enthusiasm but then he begins to think she might be crazy so he invents an excuse...a phone call sending him away. While he's attempting to get her out of the van before she truly goes crazy he mentions wishing she could go with him. More circumstances make that a possibility. Some may call it stalking, Mary calls it many, many other things in long paragraphs and polysyllabic words.

Mary is not just a person who talks all the time -- she's a walking encyclopedia of random facts -- and she ends up alienating loads of people on her quest to find Steve. Then she becomes a hero, accidentally, of course. Thomas Haden Church plays the annoying, selfish anchorman wanna-be and he eggs Mary on. Though I wasn't sure what his motivation was exactly his encouragement got Mary to relentlessly pursue Steve.

I didn't see this movie in the theaters, and was reluctant to watch it on DVD because of the bad reviews it got when it was released. I shouldn't have given the critics so much credence. This movie was funny! There were plenty of belly laughs, and none of them depended on grossing-out the viewer. This is a grown-up movie, and relies on your understanding of personality, human foibles, and the silliness of the media to generate humor. My recommendation is that you DO NOT read any synopsis of the plot...go into it cold. This will ensure that the insane turns this movie takes have their full kick!

I laughed out loud several times. Some of the things Bradley Cooper did wasn't funny, but Sandra Bullock was so cute in it, and funny. A good light hearted movie.

I thought this movie was GREAT! I watch all of Sandra Bullock's movies and I think she played this character GREAT! Even down to the eye makeup! So what if you think the story line is weak and unbelievable! Most movies are! When I go to a movie I don't go to see REAL LIFE. If I wanted that I would stay at home and watch CNN or FOX news. Movies for me are Romance movies and they are for Dreaming and Comedy movies for a GOOD laugh! If you are looking for a GOOD healthy laugh then go watch this movie. I laughed and cried at this movie because I know there ARE people out there like this that society makes fun of! I'm going to buy this movie when it comes out on DVD thats how much I enjoyed it! This is just my opinion.

I'm not going to mince words. I loved this movie!!! I get a smile across my face when I think of Sandra Bullock's character's name, Mary Magdalene Horowitz. Instead of being a bad performance this is a daring one for Bullock. Eschewing all movie star vanity she works without a net here and creates an endearingly loopy comic performance that reverberates in your subconscious. She is abetted by a terrific supporting cast notably Thomas Haden Church as a vain TV reporter and Bradley Cooper as the cameraman who is the object of her affections(obsessions?). This is classic screwball stuff that once the notoriety of the Razzie Bullock won wears off will develope a deserved cult following. This is offbeat material that neither the studios knew how to market or the reviewers knew what to make of so they slagged it off. If I would draw a parallel this flick is reminiscent of the work of the Farrelly Brothers or the makers of "Napoleon Dynamite". Regardless, see this movie and ignore the naysayers.

This movie was laugh-out-loud funny punctuated with tear jerker moments that had me reaching for the tissue box. Sandra Bullock is such a lovable nerd!!

I had low expectations going into this film; especially with some of the poor reviews and low ratings some viewers gave it. I have to say I was surprised to find this film quite funny in parts. It is not a deep movie and it is not going to win any Oscars, but I found it to be entertaining and funny. Worth watching.

I only now getting around to viewing this film that "won" Sandra Bullock her Razzie. And I believe that the Razzie voters were mistaken. I feel that Bullock did a nice job of playing a quirky, annoying person. Surely there were plenty of performances far more deserving of this award.

Although the character could be annoying, she still seemed like someone that would also be good to have as a friend, particularly as she evolved by the end of the movie. I think that it would not be a stretch to compare Mary to PeeWee Herman in "PeeWee's Big Adventure."

I felt that all of the actors really did fine work in this fun little comedy and I look forward to viewing it again.
