Film disappointments – Sandra Bullock

I love Sandra Bullock and have ever since I saw her in Speed and While You Were Sleeping.  No matter what the film, she was always likeable and fun to watch.  In addition to those first few I’ve loved her in The Proposal, The Heat, 28 Days, The Lake House, Crash, Miss Congeniality, Murder by the Numbers…you get the idea.  I even liked her in the bomb Forces of Nature!  I think, in all, I’ve seen her in 24 movies.

So, I brought All About Steve, co-starring Bradley Cooper, home from  the library.  I know it was panned by the critics when it came out but I figured Sandra could really pull off anything, especially if it was supposed to make me laugh.  I was wrong.  She was so completely miscast in this disjointed 2009 movie.  She was very strange and that’s okay because I’ve always considered normal pretty boring, but not strange in much of a real way.  Also, I know she looks young, but I’m not sure what age she was supposed to be pulling off.  It was very disappointing, even with the overriding message of it’s okay to be different.

Has one of your favorite actors or actresses let you down lately?

  1. The Three Stooges haven’t done anything good lately.

  2. I don’t even remember that movie. Sorry it was a stinker for you. I was very disappointed in Emma Stone’s performance in Aloha when I saw it.

    • Another Bradley Cooper movie! Maybe it’s not the girls at all 🙂

  3. I love Sandra Bullock and have liked everything I’ve seen her in, but I haven’t seen All About Steve.

    I am a huge John Travolta fan, but when I saw Battlefield Earth I couldn’t believe he agreed to do the movie. It was a big disappointment.

    • I like Travolta too, but never saw Battlefield Earth. The previews scared me away!

  5. I really like Sandra Bullock too. I haven’t seen this movie and can’t say I want to. I think of movies a lot like I do about books. Not every one will turn out good, no matter who is in it. Will Smith maybe? I really like him, but some of his more recent movies haven’t been as good.
