Movie Diary 9/1/2009

All About Steve (Phil Traill, 2009) and My One and Only (Richard Loncraine, 2009). The new Sandra Bullock and the new Renee Zellweger in the same day. It’s a lot to take in, folks. Give Bullock credit for playing a bordering-on-Jim-Carrey kind of looney, a character far less naturalistic than movie audiences have become conditioned to seeing at the center of a romantic comedy. The other film must have been named in a contest to devise the least memorable title possible, and is mostly interesting because the story happened to George Hamilton. (full reviews 9/4)
