Why is it when I hear a film is really bad that I’m seized by an urge to see it at all costs? Brian Lowry‘s 9.3 Variety review of All About Steve has really put the hook in. “Sandra Bullock (The Proposal) and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) have both been associated with hit comedies this summer, a thought they should cling to as reviews of All About Steve dribble in,” he begins. “Misfiring on every conceivable front, it’s that rarest of comedies — one whose stabs at humor fall painfully flat, while eliciting unintentional giggles every time the film seeks to be serious or deliver a message (which it actually does). Sitting through the pic is an endurance test, but its theatrical durability should be brief.”
