Consensus: All About Steve is an oddly creepy, sour film, featuring a heroine so desperate and peculiar that audiences may be more likely to pity than root for her.

Ella Taylor

All About Steve is a messy assemblage of clumsy sight gags, winking reaction shots and disingenuous populist genuflection to the idea that there's no such thing as normal. We all see a little bit of Mary in ourselves, don't we? Don't we?

Time Out

Mary is a memorable comic creation for all the wrong reasons: glibly written, offensively characterised and bizarrely dressed, she's the classic screwball ditz taken to grotesque and at times unwatchable extremes.

This isn't a perfect film; Mary's persona was annoying; I think the filmmakers just let go of the story at a certain point. But the film's heart was in the right place.

Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy review.

Chicago Reader

Packaged as a romantic comedy but devoid of comedy or romance, this baffling train wreck stars Sandra Bullock as a tediously kooky constructor of crossword puzzles for a Sacramento newspaper.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Mary's supposed to be a plucky free spirit, but mostly she's a chatty bore who's emotionally clueless.

Just when it seems All About Steve couldn't grow any more insufferable, it turns strangely sentimental.

Chuck Wilson
L.A. Weekly

[A] refreshingly quirky comedy.

Katherine Monk

A head-scratcher of a comedy starring the increasingly enigmatic Sandra Bullock.

It really is a wonder how these scripts get a green-light. Mild laughs. Cooper is hot. Mostly offensive jokes though.
Thomas Johnston
Not much to say... other than it takes 1.5 hours to get through it. To say it is a cute movie is strech.

Okay, I am not going to say this was a good movie, but I still don't get the hate on it. I actually kind of liked Sandra's weird girl character here.… More
