All About Steve Blu-Ray Review

 Synopsis:Treat yourself this holiday season and fall in love with the witty romantic comedy All About Steve when it debuts on Blu-ray Disc (BD) and DVD December 22 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Golden Globe-nominee* Sandra Bullock (The Proposal) and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) star in this off-the-wall comedy about a blind date gone hilariously wrong. When eccentric, but lovable, Mary gets set up with Steve, a news channel cameraman, she falls hard. He does not. Mary decides to follow Steve on a cross-country hunt for breaking news and soon finds herself entangled in the story. But despite the media storm surrounding her, Mary may just discover her true place in the world... and the man of her dreams!

Review: I was interested in this movie due to the cast.  It has two alumni of the Hangover (this next generation's Animal House as far as I'm concerned) and Sanda Bullock, who has been a favorite of mine since Demolition Man.  Yeah, thats right...Demo Man.  Anyway, I was excited to see what they'd do with this film. 

Sandra camps it up playing a complete loser that latches onto Bradley Cooper's character after one "date".  This very ackward Napoleon Dynamite type girl decides to get her shot at a normal life by going on a blind date.  She then jumps on him before they even leave her parents house.  He realizes quickly that she must be nuts and gets away from her and the rest of the movie is her following him around and acting erradic. 

Parents - beware there are is a good amount of cursing and sexual references in the film, along with a rather graphic (for a comedy) groping scene in the first part of the film when Sandra jumps on Bradley Cooper.  This

This is a new blu-ray, so there isn't much to say about the transfer.  It looks great in 1080p high definition.  I can't fault the sound quality or the video its all in order as you'd expect from any new release in 2009.  The film wasn't well recieved by critics or movie-goers, but I enjoyed it.  I liked how nuts Sandra's character was and I enjoyed a lot of the humor throughout.  I timidly recommend it ..comedy is so hit and miss.  It all depends on what you think is funny.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
