One of the best romantic comedies I have seen in a quite a while. My wife and I saw this as a sneak preview and both of us along with the large audience were laughing all the way to the end.Definitely Sandra Bullocks best movie and Ryan Reynolds was just perfect in this one.Ryan Reynolds is becoming a star and this movie shows he can be a leading man as well as his perfect comedic timing. His facial expressions in this movie were priceless.This one ranks up there with Sandra Bullocks "While you were Sleeping" and Ryan Reynolds "Definetely Maybe".
I "propose" you see this! (by sylviamaye)
I just got back from the theater with my mother who laughed hysterically through out . Yeah, it's a romantic comedy and you're pretty sure you know how the movie is going to turn out so you may dismiss this without really giving it a chance. BIG MISTAKE! The movie is charming, hilarious and sweet. I was just waiting for Ryan and Sandra to kiss throughout. The chemistry was undeniable and the acting was wonderful. I could feel the sexual tension just oozing from the screen. And Ryan...WOW what a body that man has on him! Sandra is gorgeous and if you're a fan of hers you'll <more>
I was prepared to dismiss "The Proposal" as just another mildly entertaining, "formula" romantic comedy. I confess I completely underestimated this film. We saw this in a week-early pre-release screening. Even a week before release the buzz must have been good since the theater was sold out to the last seat. I swear everyone there was rolling in the aisles for the entire film. Bullock and Reynolds have great chemistry and both have pitch-perfect timing. They're supported by an incredible cast that includes Mary Steenburgen, Graig T. Nelson and Betty White. White, in <more>
particular, is a crack-up as the feisty 90-year-old Grandma Annie.This is not one of those exasperating comedies that uses up its four good jokes in its trailer. I've seen some commentary describing this as a cross between "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Green Card". That is a fair description of the plot but it does this film a disservice. "The Proposal" is very much more than that. The writing here manages to be both wicked-smart and belly-laugh funny and the entire cast sells it in every scene. These guys really hit this one out of the park! A nearly perfect film! 10+ **Stay for the credits, by the way.**
Enterprising young assistant takes on hard-nosed boss - romance ensues! (by adelmosj)
Producer/star Sandra Bullock turns out what looks like another box office smash. Typical of most "chick-flicks," the trailer tells you just about everything you're going to see. Unexpectedly, though, the surprises come from behind the scenes. The film looks gorgeous and not just the two lead actors : the prettiness of the interior sets is matched by the choice of locations. While much of the film is set amidst the beauty of a seaside town in Alaska, even New York City is made to look like something out of a story book. It hasn't looked this good since the era of Doris Day. <more>
Typical of such a film, the costumes, even on the extras in the background, are so well-coordinated with the locations that the whole thing feels like a "realist fantasy." Likewise, the plot itself is reminiscent of the romantic comedies of half a century ago - complete with their morality, albeit updated enough in a post-feminist era for Ryan Reynolds' masculinity to function credibly in "the Doris Day role." This he handles extremely well, although Sandra Bullock deserves most of the praise. As a producer, she knows her on- screen strengths and weaknesses, and, most importantly, she knows her audience and, despite the hard-nosed ice-queen she chooses to play here, everyone will continue to love her. Frankly, I was surprised to see so many empty seats at the sneak-preview last night in Boston, but I hope that doesn't get the filmmakers down. The audience loved this film and it's going to get positive word-of-mouth from whoever sees it - young or old. It's going to be around for a long time.
The Proposal is a great movie, as long as one remembers what a romantic comedy is and what it is not (by MiaGellar)
"The Proposal" turned out to be a very cute comedy and, unlike the majority of movies I watched in the past few months, did not leave me disappointed. As most of you probably know, it is about a very bitchy boss of a very cute guy who is about to be deported to Canada and loose her job. Not surprisingly, she quickly comes up with a great idea of marrying the assistant aka the cute guy , which will give her an opportunity to continue working for an American company. It wouldn't be interesting, of course, if not for the girl's extreme bitchiness and the guy's hatred <more>
towards her, on which most of the funny moments are built.I wouldn't say that "The Proposal" is the funniest romantic comedy out there, but it is a very charming one. As usual, Sandra Bullock is very likable and brings a sparkle of her great personality to the picture. Ryan Reynolds, who I've never heard about before and don't care much about, is adorable in his own way. The chemistry between two actors is great and they make the whole thing very believable. Of course, being a romantic comedy, "The Proposal" is very predictable and a little clichéd, but this is what the genre entails, so I don't understand people who complain about it. Don't know about you, but I personally never expect to get some food for thought from watching a romcom and, thus, am completely satisfied if the acting is good, the plot is interesting, and a few funny moments are included.I have to admit, however, that I might have liked the movie because, I adore Sandra Bullock, who, I think, is one of my favorite American actresses. She seems to have such an amazing personality that you can't help but wish you were friends with her. I also see Sandy as a very down to earth person who is much more grounded and real than most of other celebrities. This is why, no matter what movie Bullock's in, I take pleasure in watching it. Oh, and I just have to mention her amazing physique! Sandra's fit body she gets practically naked in one scene will make many much younger girls jealous not to mention 45 y.o. women . I also respect Bullock for not turning her face into that of a wax figure, like Nicole Kidman and many others. I think that, even with a few wrinkles on her face, Sandra Bullock looks much better and younger than most of those nip/tucked women and hope that she'll keep aging gracefully without starting to abuse plastic surgery! Overall, "The Proposal" is a good movie for a girls' night out, as well as a great one to rent later on if you don't want to spend $10 for a movie ticket now.
It Was all great until the ending.. (by kody_elrafihi)
i loved the movie throughout the whole time. but i thought the way it ended wasn't as good, and i thought it could of been better, like instead of ending it like that, it may have ended with their real wedding. and all but other than that i loved the movie. it was a great movie with a great story but i thought it could of been in my top 10 but the ending just changed everything else for me. but it did make it to my top 20 and thats a factshould you watch it? yes, its a great story about a woman who doesn't care about no one but herself, and then finds out she has to leave the US and <more>
go back to Canada. later she decides she wants fake a marriage with her assistant. they end up hating each other at first, but it all changes through the time they were in Alaska. then it ends with both of them really falling inlove and becoming a true couple. ill give this movie a 9/10, actors, story was all good, but just thought the ending could of been better.
We went into this movie more or less out of despair; the cinema offerings seemed uniformly lousy and we simply wanted to see a movie that looked like fun. This one looked stupid: I'd seen Betty White promoting the movie on Jimmy Fallon's show and the scene shown was idiotic, though it did have a couple of amusing lines. Well, we were all pleasantly surprised. The outcome of the plot might be predictable, but the road getting there is surprisingly sharp and entertaining. There are quite a few witty lines and exchanges, and the delivery and timing of the two stars and, of course, of <more>
Betty White are just about perfect. Both of the lead characters have surprises in their backgrounds to reveal, and the settings are beautiful. There are one or two scenes that are clunkers, but even the dopey episode with White's Grandma Annie doing a ritualistic dance in the woods ends up having some relevance to a later plot event. The movie is well thought-out and well executed, and the actors create characters who engage us, even if we don't know anyone quite like them in our own lives.
My jaw is still aching, almost an hour and a half after the credits rolled. I don't recall when I last laughed this consistently and heartfelt at a new production. Yes, this is pretty formulaic stuff... if you've seen one mismatched couple romantic comedy, you've seen them all. This never claimed to be anything other than that. It definitely delivers what one expects from the genre, without any of it being phoned in or taken any less seriously. Not every film needs to revolutionize the craft, and shape cinema for decades to come. If everything was excellent, it would become the <more>
norm, and it would cease to be special. And I find it incredible and immensely positive that a movie with this kind of humor observational, and largely derived from typical situations that happen to everyone can still be made, and be nicely received. Humiliation and pain are not actually funny. They get a schadenfreude reaction, "thank goodness that didn't happen to me", and thus we move further apart, isolate ourselves all the more. This does the opposite, letting us get closer to each other, share the little things that we've forgotten are silly or "off" in our everyday lives. It does go a tad too far on occasion, to get the audience going, but those instances are few in number. The acting is great all-round, and the two leads have chemistry, and play off each other well. There are countless memorable sequences, jokes and gags in this. This contains "moments" between Bullock and Reynolds, as well, and they genuinely work. You feel for them. The characters are just about invariably well-written, interesting and credible. In general, the script is well-done. The music is pleasant and well-chosen. This ought to entertain nearly everyone, of any age. There is a little strong and/or risqué language, and a couple of usually mild sexual references, and this tends to be inoffensive. I recommend this to all who think they may enjoy it. Chances are that you're right. 8/10
The Proposal Proves to be an Engaging Summer Treat (by amarcordforever)
In a long line of boy hates girl, boy's forced into spending time with girl, boy falls head over heals for girl schlock films, comes "The Proposal". I don't pretend to make any excuses for why exactly I made the decision to see it. I knew exactly what I was getting myself into by RSVPing to an advanced screening, especially after being spoon fed the trailer before one out of every three movies that I've come to attend in the past month. I even went as far as to make an explicit promise to my guest and self that there would be zero badmouthing in between scenes. As much <more>
as I would hate watching the excruciatingly sappy, formulaic storyline unfold, I would keep my lips sealed and my opinions to a minimum. This time, I would give a movie of its kind a fighting chance.Margaret Tate Sandra Bullock, Premonition is nicknamed "Satans Mistress" by her co- workers. She is the epitome of shallow, cutthroat, bitchy book editors. Andrew Paxton Ryan Reynolds, Mr. Brooks is her hard working, slave of an assistant whose personal life is second only to his bosses grueling work ethic and demanding hours. When Margaret is unexpectedly faced with the reality that she is to be deported back to Canada due to a mix up with her Visa, she decides to fake an engagement to Andrew despite his awkward and intrepid hesitation. In fear of their ploy being discovered by immigration services, they elope to Andrews' hometown in Alaska to "meet the family". Mom Mary Steenburgen, Clifford and Dad Craig T. Nelson, Coach as well as Grandma Annie Betty White, The Golden Girls are more than surprised by their son's sudden plans of marriage, but they more or less accept it and from there it is up to Margaret and Andrew to keep from killing each other until the weekend comes to an end. From the get go, Bullock and Reynolds' chemistry is something to be marveled at and is sustained right on through to the end of the film. This is due mostly in part to their impeccable handling of a tricky character arc. One minute they're at each other's throats, the next they are slowly and subtly falling in love. No easy task, but juggled perfectly. In a scene which takes place in the bedroom, Andrew on the floor, Margaret in the bed, she proceeds to reveal some of her inner most secrets, and it is then that we realize, she is human, she has feelings like everyone else and there is a clear cut reason for why she has become what she has become. Therein lies an emotional, heartfelt and extremely touching moment. In recent memory, I cannot recall the last time Bullock has brought such exposition and beauty to a role, so much to the point of reinvention. Reynolds, once again, shows that he has a gift for impeccable comic timing and plays off his leading ladies quirks and nuances perfectly. It is clear from scene to scene that director Anne Fletcher 27 Dresses , a former choreographer, uses her past experiences to bring the characters of Margaret and Andrew to life, while at the same time giving them both a chance to breath by utilizing very simple shot selections and minimal technical glitz. The end result is similar to a dance in which each character plays off one another in moments that border impromptu and stark realism, yielding a variety of very funny, laugh out loud scenes.Alas, "The Proposal" does have it's occasional blunders, one of which takes place between Grandma Annie and Margaret in which they dance around a bonfire in the woods singing their rendition of Lil Jon's "Get Low". Needless to say, it felt misplaced and brutally over the top. The same goes for one, which appears earlier on, involving an overweight male stripper. I could practically hear studio execs forcing it into the script for a few last minute laughs, but it falls flat and feels oddly manipulated. For what it's worth, "The Proposal" defied my expectations and emerged as a pleasant surprise heading into summer blockbuster season. It is a small, unpretentious movie with a whole lot of heart and doesn't thrive to put a demand on your think tank. If there's one thing one might come away with from such a film, it is that the one person of the opposite sex that you loath the most, may just be the one you end up spending the rest of your life loving to hate. In theaters June 19th, 2009.
