EVERYONE KNOWS THAT WHEN a STUDIO HAS ANY FAITH in a FILM's PROSPECTS, THEY DON'T TEND to HOLD IT from RELEASE for TWO YEARS...

BUT in the TWO YEARS SINCE PRODUCTION WAS COMPLETED on http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=382 - ALL ABOUT STEVE , http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120179/awards - 3-TIME RAZZIE

BULLOCK: "So, like, what producer do I have to f**k to get off this picture...Oh, wait...I'M one of the producers. So, in a bunch of waze, no matter what I do, Ill end up f**king myself..."

Sandra Bullock is like the female Nic Cage.

I saw the trailer for this ... and I didn't laugh once. In fact, the entire time I was thinking "who thought this was going to be funny and threw millions of dollars away to have it made?".

This movie should've been called "The Hangover" --- Bradley Cooper was so drunk that he forgot that he met Sandra Bullock.

I thought this was going to be a tragedy where Bullock is killed in a tragic accident in the end of the movie and the guys in the film eventually find out what a great and optimistic person she was, even though they were annoyed by her. They didn't know how much she was meant to their lives, mostly Cooper's life. And if you think this is a joke, I really am not kidding. I don't know why I thought of that but that idea was taken from Bridge to Terabithia, a really great film. Maybe I just like those movies where you think something of one person but when that person dies that you feel something that you haven't felt for them before.

In fact, I would love to see this movie if it ends like that, which I really doubt. However, I have a feeling somewhere in the third act that something similar will happen that will eventually break Bullock's heart and Cooper feeling sad for her.

I've got something you might be interested in:  Roger Moore of the Orlando Sentinel has posted his case that the Razzie for Worst Actress isn't going to Cyrus, Heigl, Hudson, or Stewart ( http://www.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment/movies/orl-movie-review-all-about-steve,0,5373361.story - LINK ).  Considering his words, this movie could be worse than Speed 2: Cruise Control. 

If that's the case, then its RT ratings will not exceed 2% after 50 reviews.  Of course, the possibility of that happening is 250 to 1. 

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I hit Miguel's link above, expecting to read a review at least mentioning The RAZZIES. Instead, while Moore does call STEVE "the worst movie in Bullock's career," he not only fails to mention our Awards, but also makes no comparison between the chances of Bullock  and those of Hiegl, Cyruss, et al. Yes, it looks like Bullock does belong on our Worst Actress list for this film...but no, Moore's review was not handicapping the race as Antilsu's entry suggests...

Well, we are just over halfway there (26 reviews) and have a nice pair of goose eggs on the Tomatometer.

Do you think things might go http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/ballistic_ecks_vs_sever/ - Ballistic here?

Maybe this will be the Front-Runner that G. I. BLOW was originally thought to be.  Could this outstink Seltzerberg?

Seltzerberg's track record is not to be trifled with. No one makes movies that consistently that are so constantly horrible and make so much money. At least in the way that they do. I guess you can at least credit Bay with exploding things well. They do NOTHING of value.

Oh, I don't know, Uwe Boll's track record is pretty neck and neck with Seltzerberg's, minus the making money part.

Well that's exactly my point, though. They make the purest of crap, and yet it inexplicably makes money.
With Bay, you can at least chalk it up to the fact that people love to see things blow up.

Yeah, with Seltzerberg and Bay, it's the one-two punch of no talent hack writers/directors who the studios back and stupid movie goers who are willing to shell out their money to watch pop culture "jokes" and stuff blowing up because they are so starved for entertainment, regardless if it's good or not.

So, when a man stalks a woman in the movies, he's automatically the worst kind of scum to walk the earth (and in many ways that is true in the real world, to be fair), but when a woman stalks a man, it's automatically hilarious, even though she may exhibit frightening signs?  That's sexism pure and simple, and a strong reflection of Hollywood's horrible sex relations.  Just once in one of these films, I'd like to see said woman--if and only if she truly deserves it, for chivalry DOES state firmly that woman are to be treated with the utmost respect at all times unless they give you good reason not to--be rewarded for her really sins with a fist to the face, for it wouldn't be as monstrous as they'd make it out to be in today's politically correct Hollywood (although better the man be horrified he's capable of that anyway so the audience retains sympathy with him).

Sorry, wetbandit, but if you want a major motion picture in which there's no sexism, than you're going to have to write your own screenplay and enter it in contests in hopes of a studio picking it up and producing it, because H-Wood is not going to make one on its own any time soon.

I wouldn't really say all that. Look at Fatal Attraction for example. And then consider for a moment all of the teen sex comedies where the nerdy guy stalks a girl, and it's just considered cute or whatever you want to call it.
But if you want to talk double standards, yes, they definitely exist. And probably always will.

Sometimes it depends on who writes the script. If a woman writes or directs a movie, the women are role model citizens and the men are all beer drinking, emotionless, sports obsessed cavemen. If a man writes or directs, the men are as cool as can be and the women are horny, half naked, big boobed sex machines. Such is the way it may allways be.

Men clearly make better movies, then.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hurt_locker/news/1862917/critics_choose_must_sees_and_worsts_of_2009 - Critics: Best and Worst of 2009

A little thingy I found on Rotten Tomatoes: 9 fairly well-known critics choose their favorite (and least favorite) movies of last year. All About Steve appears 4 times as a least favorite. Miss March was the second least liked, with 2.
Bearing this in mind, I think we may want to look a little more closely at this movie, which may have been OBVIOUSLY bad enough to be almost entirely unnoticed by Razzie members. I'd be willing to bet less than 10% of those who may vote have seen it.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Not to worry, I recently saw ALL ABOUT STEVE on Pay-per-View, and it will be listed all over this year's RAZZIE® Nominating Ballot, as will our PreVue Nite feature, MISS MARCH ( http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=344 - Forum LINK )...

Based on what I have been reading around here, "All About Steve", "Pink Panter 2", and "Miss March" might be giving "Trannies 2" and "GI Joe" a run for their money in the Worst Picture catagory.

After watching coverage on these forums all through 2009, I believe this movie deserves to win Worst Picture for 2009. Sandra Bullock's resume is a mess! Besides, if you shelf a movie THIS bad for 1.9 years before releasing it, the out-of-date factor is the least of your worries. Cinema gods forbid the stalker chick flick subgenre from taking over, because it sounds bad!

Who knows, between Bullock's role in this movie and her role in "The Blind Side", this might be one of those rare years when someone wins both a Razzie and an Oscar.

In off! Sandra wasn't good in this film, but she wasn't good. She made everything what she can with this wrong charachter. Dont hurt her, thinking about Blid Side and Proposal and forget All About Steve. If somebody can do a performance like Blind Side - NOT A RAZZIE WORTHY!

I respect your opinion, kelemenmarc. I believe you meant to say "she's wasn't good, but she wasn't THAT bad either". I'm not sure if Razzie voters will listen to you, since Sandra is such a high profile star and as such, it's very tempting to vote for her. I, on the other hand, believe we have bigger fish to fry, like Megan Fox, Kate Hudson/Anne Hathaway, and Beyonce.

Wow, how did this movie get greenlit? I just watched it on HBO and was left wondering "Who thought it would be a good idea to write/direct/produce this unfunny movie about Sandra Bullock spending all her screen time either ranting on about unless knowledge or comparing all aspects of life to crossword puzzles ... while she's stalking Bradley Cooper across America"? 

Just writing that description makes my head hurt, let alone having to watch it!

I just saw this and gave it 5/10.It did't deserve to be nominated for "Actress","Director" nor "Picture".But it deserved to win "Screenplay" and "Couple".

My review:



IF THIS IS "ALL ABOUT "STEVE"",WHY ARE 2 ACTORS CREDITED BEFORE HIM?(***/*****): 


Spoilers ahead! 


This has to be one the most unfocused scripts ever.It goes from comedy to romantic comedy to drama,which is a shame because,separately,it does good in the former and latter aspects.But it sucks as a romantic movie.I mean it's about a stalker thinking she's in love!Who's idea was to market this as a rom-com?! First we have to root for this character(which is very hard)to get her man.Then we have to believe he understands her only because she could die.Then we have to accept she accepted what she did with no problem.I can't really blame writer Kim Barker,since there are so many complains about modern movies not having character development.

The first half of the movie it shows MARY as a crazy person,and then all of the sudden we have to look at her as a good person who's just different and we(the audience)are bad people for thinking she was crazy? Sandra Bullock is miscast.However,she does what she can with the role and she does O.K..The only reason she won a Razzie was because they knew she'd win an Oscar the next day.

Grades: C- in the U.S. and 4,5 in Chile.
