Critic Reviews of "All About Steve"
NPRMay 28, 2013
All About Steve is a messy assemblage of clumsy sight gags, winking reaction shots and disingenuous populist genuflection to the idea that there's no such thing as normal. We all see a little bit of Mary in ourselves, don't we? Don't we?
New York PostMay 28, 2013
Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy review.
Associated PressMay 28, 2013
Just when it seems All About Steve couldn't grow any more insufferable, it turns strangely sentimental.
Time OutJanuary 15, 2010
Mary is a memorable comic creation for all the wrong reasons: glibly written, offensively characterised and bizarrely dressed, she's the classic screwball ditz taken to grotesque and at times unwatchable extremes.
Chicago ReaderSeptember 21, 2009
Packaged as a romantic comedy but devoid of comedy or romance, this baffling train wreck stars Sandra Bullock as a tediously kooky constructor of crossword puzzles for a Sacramento newspaper.
L.A. WeeklySeptember 10, 2009
[A] refreshingly quirky comedy.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)May 28, 2013
Mary's supposed to be a plucky free spirit, but mostly she's a chatty bore who's emotionally clueless.
Canada.comMay 28, 2013
A head-scratcher of a comedy starring the increasingly enigmatic Sandra Bullock.
Cleveland Plain DealerMay 28, 2013
Bullock, as both co-producer and star, makes sure All About Steve sparkles with easy laughs.
Empire MagazineMay 28, 2013
On paper, a crazy romcom starring Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper could only be a good thing. Wrong.
Austin ChronicleMay 28, 2013
Kooky? Hardly. Cringing? Most assuredly.
TV GuideMay 28, 2013
It's so bad, you might feel a little sorry for Bullock -- but don't take pity on her. Watching All About Steve will only make you feel worse.

Sandra BullockBirth date: 26 July 1964, Arlington, Virginia, USADescription: Sandra Annette Bullock was born in Arlington, a Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C. Her mother, Helga Bullock (née Helga Mathilde Meyer), was a German opera singer. Her father, John W. Bullock, was an American voice teacher, who was born in Alabama, of Irish, English, French, and German descent. Sandra grew up on the road with her parents and younger sister, chef Gesine Bullock-Prado, and spent much of her childhood in Nuremberg, Germany. She often performed in the children's chorus of whatever production her mother was in. That singing talent later came in handy for her role as an aspiring country singer in The Thing Called Love (1993). Her family moved back to the Washington area when she was adolescent. She later enrolled in East Carolina University in North Carolina, where she studied acting. Shortly afterward she moved to New York to pursue a career on the stage. This led to acting in television programs and then feature films. She gave memorable performances in Demolition Man (1993) and Wrestling Ernest Hemingway (1993), but did not achieve the stardom that seemed inevitable for her until her work in the smash hit Speed (1994). She now ranks as one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood. For her role in The Blind Side (2009) she won the Oscar, and her blockbusters The Proposal (2009), The Heat (2013) and Gravity (2013) made her a bankable star. With $56,000,000, she was listed in the Guinness Book Of World Records as the highest-paid actress in the world.
