Bad beyond belief!,
This review is from: All About Steve [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this film the other night with a growing sense of disbelief at just how bad it actually was. 'No', I kept thinking to myself, 'it can't really be that bad. There must be some sort of clever post-modern irony going on here'. Alas, however, there was not and it really was as bad as I feared! Both the screenplay and plot are banal and puerile beyond belief. The characters were one-dimensional cardboard cut-outs espousing a mawkish sentimentality or completely faux emotions. The film was an insult to all of the cast who surely deserve better than this. I like the lead actors (the gorgeous Sandra Bullock and uber-hunk Bradley Cooper) but this film is definitely not worthy of them. To add insult to injury, the title of course references one of the greats of American cinema. Films like this give cinema a bad name. Fortunately the DVD only cost me £3 but I definitely want a refund! The Amazon review system doesn't allow you to award 0 stars which I would if I could. Most definitely nul points as they say in a certain Eurotrash competition. Sorry guys - but an absolutely terrible effort!

Only wish I'd read this review before I wasted my time watching the movie. The TV guide did warn it would only appeal to diehard Sandra Bullock fans. I do like Sandra - normally. Not sure I'd bother to watch another one of her movies now.
