All About Steve : Movie Review

The romantic comedy has become a deeply problematic art form over the past 20 years or so: With very few exceptions (David Koepp's marvelous "Ghost Town," released last year, is the only one in recent memory I can recommend without reservation), contemporary filmmakers have barely been able to satisfy the basic requirements of the genre, let alone do anything fresh with it.
