Quirky Things

Loose strings, cracked sidewalks, wispy clouds among towering Cumulus puffs, not knowing if to laugh or to cry, and hiccups. Quirky.  Just like red boots and Mary Horowitz.

Mary Horowitz, is the main character in All About Steve played by Sandra Bullock along side handsome Bradley Cooper who plays Steve a TV cameraman and Thomas Haden Church, a newscaster. Mary falls head over heels for this handsome Steve and begins to follow him around. The movie is full of laughter, irony galore, and life lessons. Though it begins with a frenzied sex scene giving it its PG 13 rating, the rest of the movie is quite innocuous yet poignant. The theme is voiced ironically through the hands of a deaf child left behind in a old mine shaft. The metaphor in itself is very touching. Fortunately, for those of us who  enjoy a good comedy, the movie has a good ending for Mary who may seem quirky. If you want to laugh and laugh seeing the contrasting and hilarious situations played out side by side and want to see it all over again, this is the movie for you.
