It's Our Gal Sandra....and it's "All About Steve."

It's no real surprise that I love Sandra Bullock.

She's a Hollywood survivor who is smart, funny, not afraid to act wacky or look unattractive...

AND she enjoys working behind-the-scenes as much as in front.

Oh yeah....she's also currently riding a huge wave of success after her recent romantic-comedy flick The Proposal (which cost only
$40 million to make....) just passed the $157 million dollar mark at the box office.

No, that's NOT a typo.

After 9 weeks in release....The Proposal has made $157+ million dollars.

In comparison, Night At The Museum 2 cost $150 million to make, and in 13 weeks has made $175 million.

Huh. Not bad girlie, not bad at all.

Especially for a former "It Girl" who many had written off as no longer bankable at the box office. I'm sure that some of those suits in La-La land were even waiting for her to announce a TV project.

That's where the former movie queens seem to be going nowadays...doncha know.

Nope, it seems our gal Sandra can still bring 'em into the theaters....she just has to be driving the right vehicle.

Well, looks like the next one for her is another romantic comedy, and this time she is once again starring with a handsome & younger leading man.

You go girl.

Lucky for Sandra, the guy (Bradley Cooper) is suddenly very hot after his recent turn in the mega-successful summer hit, The Hangover.

I've seen this trailer for the upcoming It's All About Steve a few times now, and each time it still makes me smile. Pseudo-stalker Sandra is quirky yet likable, TV reporter Thomas Haden Church looks smarmy yet funny and Bradley Cooper is......well, OK -- he's just plain hunkalicious.

(Gimme a break, I'm not dead!)

So click the movie title link here ----> All About Steve
<---- to go to the official movie website. You can view the trailer there, then let me know what YOU think.

(Comments added below on my site are MUCH appreciated!)

The flick was originally supposed to open in theaters last spring, but studio bosses felt that there were too many romantic comedies scheduled for release around that time -- so it is now scheduled to open on September 4, 2009.

So....can Sandra do it again?

It may be All About Steve.....but as far as I'm concerned, Sandra's drivin' the bus.

Now I'm confused. The trailer says it's opening this fall. You say March 2010. Who's right?

Regarding her no likey! She is definitely a brunette, don't mess with that. Looks great. She is so good at physical comedy. It must be all that rough housing with hubby Jesse James!

Hey there Ju Ju Burd,

Nice catch....yes, this flick was originally set to open last spring -- but the studio felt the marketplace was too crowded with romantic comedies at the time, so it was pushed back to a fall 2009 release.

It now opens on September 4, 2009.

(Honestly....I think they knew advance buzz about "Hangover" being a potential big summer hit...and they wanted to hold the release to capitalize on Bradley Cooper's new-found popularity. Just my little theory.)

Anyways....I went back in and fixed the post to reflect the correct release date. Thanks so much for reading, and thanks for the eagle eye!

By the way....I don't mind the crazy blonde, shag wig so much, I think it helps make her look a little more wacky -- we know she is a beauty underneath that crazy get-up. It's hard to hide.

All About Steve is offensive, absurd and pointless. There's nothing to enjoy, relate to, or laugh at in All About Steve. It's poorly written and just a poor excuse for a comedy. Forget about All About Steve.
