All About Steve
brilliant crossword puzzle constructor Mary Horowitz (Sandra Bullock "Miss Congeniality") is smart, pretty -
and a natural disaster that shakes news cameraman Steve (Bradley Cooper "The Proposal") to the
core. Set up on a blind date with Steve, Mary thinks the chemistry is
undeniable and just knows she's found her soulmate. She decides to do
anything and go anywhere to be with him.
Mary's escalating infatuation is encouraged by the self-serving actions
of news reporter Hartman Hughes (Thomas Haden Church "Sideways") who enjoys torturing his
insolent cameraman at every opportunity.
As the news team crisscrosses
the country covering breaking news stories, Steve becomes increasingly
unhinged as Mary trails them.
But when the overzealous 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 not only brings everyone
together but finds her own oddball friends and discovers her true place
in the world.
First-time feature director Phil Traill has made this moronic comedy from a
screenplay by Kim Barker ("License to Wed"). If that film was a minor disaster, this one is a whopper.
