The Abstinence Teacher... Hmmm...

I sometimes worry about Steve Carell. So does Angie. I firmly believe that he's a real swell guy in real life, which is why he plays it so well in his movies. But I'd really like to see him do something else. Steve and Sandra Bullock are set to star together in an upcoming Romantic Comedy... Here's The Abstinence Teacher.

A divorced sex ed teacher coerced into teaching about abstinence falls for a born-again soccer coach. IMDB

So Stevey-poo is presumably playing the born-again soccer coach in this upcoming flick. It's so magoo, and while Carell can play it so well, I can't help but feel a little disappointed that he's going down this road AGAIN.

I realize I might be jumping the gun a little, but I feel pretty confident about my assumptions. We'll have to wait for a trailer to get a better feel for it. Sandra's walking a fine line too. All About Steve and The Blind Side in one year?! Her best and worst back-to-back... it's confusing.

I'll hope for the best from both leads. Whaddaya think?

Okay from hearing what this movie is about I have a feeling it's going to be one of those "AKWARD" movies. Ummm I'll probably be able to tell the movie's plot in 2 minutes. I'm sorry I'm going to pass on this one.

I love Sandra Bullock wholeheartedly as a good person that I'm sure she is. And I think Steve Carrell is a pretty funny guy.

However, I do not really love either of these people as actors.

I'd even go so far as to say I don't think Sandra Bullock really deserved the Oscar for best actress. :( But, given who she was up against, I can see it. But she's not really a very good actor or a good pick of movie roles.

*sigh* There is no way I'm watching this movie... it just sounds jank.
