Not all that

This morning on the 8 AM PDT news broadcast on 710 KIRO radio in Seattle,
Christopher Glenn used the expression (to be) "not all that". But he used
normal sentence intonation rather than that typically associated with the
idiom "it's not all that".

When I heard it, I couldn't make up my mind whether he was using the idiom
or simply stringing English words together. I wonder if he's adopted the
expression without the intonation...
