In-flight movie: All About Steve

Let's face it. Sandra Bullock is the all-American actress. She was in "Speed" for god's sake, and you don't get more American than a speeding bus that defies gravity by leaping over an unfinished section of a highway while simultaneously carrying a bomb that miraculously doesn't explode and kill the nascent romance that Hollywood demands from its main characters. Now THAT'S America!!

"All About Steve" is a different story. And a worse story. I believe it's the worst movie I've seen in years. From the gaping plot holes to the hammy acting, this "film" has it all. Sandra may have portrayed the wacky individualist well, but since I don't know any quirky cruciverbalists who stalk their blind dates across the country, it just seemed sad and unbelievable.

Skip this flick.

(oh, I forgot to mention that the BF liked it and cried during several scenes. But I don't judge, Judy.)

Well, I think Sandra Bullock turned into the latest version of Doris Day long ago. If she keeps turning out films like this, she may turn into the new Tippi Hedren! My God, even spell-check doesn't recognize Tippi! Watch out for birds Sandra...

Okay, I didn't cry and the over all I didn't it to be the best movie ever, but I didn't hate it as much as I thought I would either. And I kind of liked the ending. And I laughed out loud when the group of deaf kids fell in the hole.

Re: my crying. I had gotten two hours sleep and was being made to sit in a freakishly small airplane seat for over 6 hours. However, it was also very touching!

Re: Crying. Pay no attention to Todd's comments about your crying. Just remember he's old. Shh, he doesn't know yet. :) I hear he's the president of the Maria Ouspenskaya fan club!

Maria is a goddess. Much classier than that classless Anastasia wanna-be tramp. I will always worship her for her influence on the Wolf Man genre.

Okay, you got me there... She should have never done that wet tee-shirt movie though!

I bet Anonymous also liked "The Notebook."
