All About Steve - Cineworld - 16/1/10

It's Sandra Bullock which means it must be a romantic comedy.

It is.

She's a bit like a female, American, Hugh Grant...playing a certain type of role in a certain type of film but always playing it with real charm and with real presence on screen.

There is nothing of note here, it's not groundbreaking, it's not "dark", it doesn't have an "edge" and it won't win anyone associated with it any awards. It will have lots of sniffy detractors making snide remarks about how "trivial" it is and they are right; this is trivial and it's silly but there are times when that's exactly what you want on a Saturday night at the movies.

The other people in the cinema laughed...a lot.

So did I.

Sandra Bullock does what she does brilliantly and I love her for it.
