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!"
You know what's really annoying about The Proposal? The fact Sandra Bullock is really rather good in it and, frankly, deserved better than the very average material Anne Fletcher's film gave her. Bullock is increasingly quite an underrated actress who, much like Jennifer Aniston, has a habit for picking really formulaic or anaemic starring vehicles that limit her potential - and boy oh boy is The Proposal slavish to formula. Consider the setup, for it has plenty of comedic potential: a complete bitch of a book publisher has to marry her put upon male assistant, to his utter shock, in order to avoid being deported from the U.S; cue lots of lying to friends & family, the awkwardness of social situations…
"The Proposal" is overlong, predictable, and very unoriginal, but the sweet and believable chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock, a good amount of heart, and a handful of laughs make this an enjoyable and entertaining time.
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…
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, this was on a whole new level of bad. I knew what I was getting into, though, since I already saw Fletcher's 27 Dresses last month. I had the lowest possible expectations about it, and yet it still managed to surprise me. It’s sad to see films like this being directed by women. It was, however, written by Pete Chiarell and considering how the main (female) character is constructed it really isn’t surprising that it was written from a man’s perspective.
Sandra Bullock plays an executive editor in chief of a book publishing company – and as in any male-written film where a woman plays an independent, career-driven and powerful character, she’s a cold-stone, emotionless and insensitive bitch, who…
i love cheesy predictable romcoms too much prob
Good and funny movie from start to finish.
Would have been better if it was actually funny.
the essential ryan reynolds movie
This is a 2 star movie that I love beyond all reason. Sometimes life is like that. The heart wants... etc. Well, this little movie is one that our whole family enjoys every time it's on.
"Hence, the boat."
Not really that funny, and it doesn't help that you're rooting against the romance right from the start. Maybe if they'd made Sandra Bullock more appealing.
Rather lame, even as chick flicks go.
This lightweight romantic comedy mostly lands its jokes, thanks to the considerable comedic chemistry of its stars, Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds.
Bullock and Reynolds have zero sexual chemistry, but they make a good comedy team, and for this film that matters more. The premise is pure sitcom -- boss forces assistant to marry her so that she can stay in the country -- but it's executed well. It's the film equivalent of a magazine: everything, including the people in it, is shiny, glossy and attractive, and you can zone out and enjoy it without flexing one single brain muscle.
God knows Hollywood doesn't get romantic comedies right very often anymore, so this film came across as a pleasant surprise.
The cast also includes Mary Steenburgen and Craig T. Nelson as Reynolds' parents, and Betty White as his grandma, and whose little-old-lady-cute-as-a-button appeal is forced on us a little too strenuously.
this is like the 15th time i've watched this movie and i still love it as much as the first time
