By the time the majestically unstable and unfunny "All About Steve" gets to a smudged, bleeding Sandra Bullock delivering a teary soliloquy next to a scared deaf girl in a mineshaft, you might assume a film this bonkers would head straight to the center of the Earth next. Or a moon made of cheese. Someplace woefully unreal, in other words. Hollywood movies preaching nonconformity are rarely a winning proposition, and "All About Steve" is no exception: an eat-your-cake-and-have-it-too exercise that razzes oddballs to no end before nearly martyring its off-kilter heroine to guilt-trip the audience.

Over a 20-year career making stylized, often genre-tinged films, Danny Boyle has been known to look at a well-worn area in new and dynamic ways. With a potential Steve Jobs movie, he could be taking on a worthy subject. The British auteur is in talks to helm Sony Pictures' much-buzzed, sometimes-bumpy Jobs biopic that "The Social Network" scribe Aaron Sorkin has adapted from Walter Isaacson's comprehensive biography, The Times has confirmed. Boyle would replace David Fincher, the "Social Network" director who appears to have moved off the project.

This is a Texan rancher who knows his way around Los Angeles -- including a possibly self-incriminating awareness of its seedier sides. The relish with which Thomas Haden Church discusses such things (unmentionable in a family newspaper) runs from the literary observer's view to the smirkingly lascivious. But one thing the loquacious actor definitely does is notice details. Throughout lunch at the old-school Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills, he provides running commentary on those around him -- particularly a large, happy group he reasons must be three generations of a family, from the established older men, possibly brothers, to the beautiful younger granddaughter decked out à la Swinging London.

Hmmm, let's see: a left-handed quarterback who sees a larger purpose than football in this life, and the one (we hope) after. Except: he may not have the arm to make it big in the NFL and runs too much, which is going to get him killed at the next level. Also: ministers to the less fortunate, is stubborn as a mule, leads with his head, constantly needs grass clumps picked out of face mask, treats body like piñata. And: so hyper-competitive he'd cry at his locker for an hour after a crushing defeat, then collect himself and responsibly face the media.

Steady Eddie has taken Los Angeles by storm, or at least those parts of it still dry enough to care about golf. In a city where glitz plays best, Steve Stricker has turned it up by toning it down at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera. He is about as flamboyant as a slice of Wisconsin cheddar; also, about as effective a striker of the golf ball and manager of a golf course as you'll find right now on the PGA Tour. During Saturday's third round, Stricker built a five-shot lead at 14 under par by fashioning a masterpiece of sensible shot making and shot selection.

Howe many chances can Steve get? Howe stupid can Steve be? Howe many reprieves is the league going to give Steve? Howe can Steve again ask the public to be understanding? I don't know Howe, but I have a message for Steve--enough is enough. KELVIN D. FILER Compton

Steve and I have been together 32 years, yet after a recent trip to Vancouver, we're newlyweds. And while I'm a 66-year-old professor of American studies, this particular Canadian journey taught me fresh lessons about myself and my country. We had planned our trip as a vacation well before the idea of getting married occurred to us. If not exactly on a lark, we decided to marry largely because Canada allows it, feeling that the ritual and resulting status wouldn't move us much after so many good years in a union of our own devising.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - It was one of the biggest, and perhaps the most quickly forgotten, interceptions in NFL playoff history. When Seattle's Richard Sherman tipped away a pass intended for San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree in the NFC championship game, linebacker Malcolm Smith caught the ball to complete a play that sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl. But Smith's heads-up effort instantly became an afterthought when Sherman's emotional postgame outburst made the cornerback one of the Super Bowl's main story lines.

After the success of "The Social Network," David Fincher's drama about Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook, the director emerged as the front-runner to bring the story of another tech giant to the big screen: Apple founder Steve Jobs. Now the Hollywood Reporter says Sony Pictures is looking to replace Fincher at the helm of its highly anticipated Jobs biopic, based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography "Steve Jobs" with a script by "Social Network" scribe Aaron Sorkin.

Nobody got hurt. The Lakers didn't lose by 50. There are only three games left. These were reasons for the Lakers to celebrate a 112-95 loss Friday to Golden State at Staples Center. The season that won't ever end is down to a handful of days. Nobody's complaining. No crying. Tension was sucked out of this season a month ago, if not longer. BOX SCORE: Golden State 112, Lakers 95 There's a lot of losing, though, six in a row for the Lakers (25-54) after a late run fell short, extending their team record for losses in a season.

DURING a stroll through the cobbled streets of Shigu (Stone Drum) in China's Yunnan province in April 2005, Steve and Peggy Goetz heard something behind them. It was this little boy poking his head out from behind the large red metal door to peek at the tourists. Steve, a faculty member at Orange Coast College, used his Pentax Optio S. "I like the fact that it was so fleeting," said Steve, of Irvine.

Kobe Bryant was annoyed. Really, really annoyed. The Lakers traded Steve Blake before the February deadline, immediately sending a dissatisfied Bryant to Twitter. He said he was "not cool" with the trade "AT ALL," hitting caps lock for effect and also calling Blake a "psycho competitor. " Blake is still appreciative two months later. He'll play with his new team, Golden State, against the Lakers in his return Friday to Staples Center. "Whenever you have support like that from a teammate, it feels great, especially from one of the greatest," Blake said in a phone interview.

Steve Nash wasn't exactly jumping up and down after moving up third on the NBA's all-time assists list during Tuesday's 145-130 loss to Houston. "It was a relief, to be honest," said Nash, a two-time league MVP. "I kind of just wanted to get it out of the way because I didn't want it hanging over my head or my teammates' heads, so it was nice to get it done. " It happened on a pass to Jodie Meeks for a dunk with 2 minutes 13 seconds left in the first half. Nash entered the game with 10,330 career assists, just four behind Mark Jackson's 10,334.  His pass to Meeks moved Nash to 10,335, now behind only John Stockton's 15,806 and Jason Kidd's 12,091.
