Today marks the 5 year anniversary of awesomeness in my life. This list represents every movie my old lady (she…
Here comes the bribe...
When she learns she's in danger of losing her visa status and being deported, overbearing book editor Margaret Tate forces her put-upon assistant, Andrew Paxton, to marry her.
The perfect example of a film that starts off well, and then descends into unimaginable awfulness very, very quickly.
There's a quote from The Big Lebowski that sums this up well: "The goddamn plane has crashed into the mountain!"
Let's just say I was bored......it's late........it came on t.v........I had nothing better to do. Let's leave it there shall we.
Well it's a romcom...You know what to expect.
A totally insane romantic comedy, The Proposal is about what happens when a corporate witch, played by Sandra Bullock, forces her emasculated intern, played by Ryan Reynolds, to marry her in order to avoid deportation to Canada. Most of the film takes place over a single weekend, at Reynolds’ family home in Alaska, where it aims for something like the cosy, big-house romantic comedies of yore. However, that also makes it feel as if Canada has already intervened, or Bullock has already returned from deportation, giving their blooming romance an intense, inescapable inevitability. Much like working in a corporate environment, as soon as the psychotic premise has been established, everyone takes it dead seriously, especially Reynolds, who acts like he’s…
Typical easy romantic movie with a happy end.
The only think I like is the scenery when they go to "Alaska" and that "Alaska" part is filmed in Boston lol.
I didnt expect to enjoy this movie as much as I did since I thought it would simply be another romantic comedy, but I was suprised at how much I ended liking this film. Ryan Reynolds already did a great romantic comedy last year with Definitely, Maybe and this time around he did it again. Sandra Bullock is back at doing what she does best: romantic comedies and in my opinion it is one of her best films as she plays a different character than she has in most other roles. This time around she is the boss who nobody can stand and is so uptight, but once she forces Reynolds character into marrying her we start seeing the humanity…
An average Rom-Com, not the best but by no means the worst
Sandra Bullok gives a nice, sexy performance and Ryan Reynolds I'm not a fan of but he's right.
Well it's a romcom...You know what to expect.
It does nothing that hundreds of romantic comedies hadn't done before, but Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds display such a nice chemistry and the supporting cast was so likeable that that was more than enough to make of The Proposal a better-than-average, entertaining, and sometimes amusing entry of the genre.
What can I say? I love movies like this, clichés and all!
'You can do this, but that would require you to stop snacking on children while they dream.'
The Proposal basically offers everything that claims to. From the poster alone, it is clearly a romantic comedy, with Sandra Bullock as the dominant half of a couple, and Ryan Reynolds as her put-upon counterpart. There is something to do with an engagement. I didn't really need to watch the film. There would be some mix ups, the two would fall out, only for it to turn out all right in the end. I watched it anyway. I was right.
It doesn't do too much wrong. There are funny bits, and Bullock in particular carries them well. Reynolds at times tries to bring…
qué gusto da ver una comedia romántica (o cualquier película, pal caso) tan tuneada a las convenciones de su género. hagan de cuenta un the conjuring: no es subversiva ni oblicua, es incluso acomodaticia, pero es exactamente lo que debe ser. es como si la hubiera dirigido un dan harmon al que le pidieran tomarse en serio su modelo.
las dos mejores decisiones estilísticas de quienes hicieron esta película se llaman sandra bullock y ryan reynolds: chulada de actores en papeles como escritos para ellos. (o, al revés, chulada de papeles con actores como nacidos para ellos.)
For all its flaws--and there's plenty of them--I'll still drop by every so often for my guilty pleasure fix... Last time around.
I really haven't got a whole lot more to say about it this time, but I adjust its rating up a notch--if not for anything else, so for putting a comfortable silly smile on my face for the umpteenth time.
(yeah, I strongly suspect this wasn't my last return...)
