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.
