All About Steve Review… H For Humorous

by Jon Pinney on September 6, 2009

all-about-steve-posterI went and saw All About Steve tonight.  It was a much better movie-going experience than the one I had last night.  Plus, surprise surprise, the movie takes place in Sacramento! :)

Sandra Bullock played a quirky crossword puzzle maker, and Bradley Cooper played a news cameraman.  He was the object Sandra Bullock’s character stalked throughout the movie.

I went thinking this would be a romantic comedy, but it was more just a comedy about believing in yourself and being okay with who you are.  Sandra Bullock’s character was different, and everyone knew it.  The best part is that she didn’t try to change who she was.  She was okay with her quirkiness and accepted it.  By the end of the movie, so was I.  In fact, I thought she was wonderful–despite her quirkiness.

It’s interesting how movies make me think.  I’ve often thought that we all need to learn to be okay with who we are.  I used to have major issues with who I was, and even hated certain things about me.  It was very unhealthy and self-destructive.  I think I’m much happier now…  In fact, I love who I am.  I know there are things I need to work on, but that’s okay.  I’m human, and as I learn and grow, I will be able to smooth out some of my imperfections.

Anyway, I would suggest this movie to anyone who’s in the mood to see a good comedy.  I wouldn’t say it was great, but it was entertaining and worth my time and money. Here’s the trailer…

If you see this movie, I’d love to know what you think about it.  What was your favorite part?
