Wow, these all look bad to me.

I read in an early review of All About Steve that Sandra Bullock is "weird" in it.

Extract may be good to watch on dvd, I like Jason Bateman, but darn it has Ben Affleck in it, I think he should retire from acting.

There aren't any I want to see in a theater, but I like S. Bullock, so might see All About Steve.
