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…
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…
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…
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.
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…

In my humble opinion, one of the best rom-coms out there. Sandra Bullock is perfect as the high-strung, ruthless executive and Ryan Reynolds is perfect as her laid-back, confused assistant. It also helps that they're both so attractive.
I really enjoy this film, yeah it's not amazing but it's stupid funny and has some great scenes
A passable comedy. Sandra and Ryan are both as identifiable as ever.
It does make me wonder how the film would be received if the genders of the two main characters were switched.
Bitches and riches don't necessarily leave me in stitches. But blow drying a puppy WILL make me laugh.
'The Proposal' is a very good romantic comedy. It's funny, sweet, endearing, and is an excellent showcase of quintessential Sandra Bullock acting talent. She has such a knack for playing bossy, awkward, unlady-like women and she fits that role to a T in this movie. Ryan Reynolds is also very good. I can't say I've loved everything he's been in, (I point to 'The Green Lantern' as to why he's not amazing) but this was definitely one of my more favorite movies I've seen him in. Lastly, Betty White really steals the show here. She's just so funny in everything she's in and this was one of the best roles I've seen her in. This movie is very cute, very funny, and I'd recommend it to almost anyone.
dont let anyone tell you this is a bad movie. i love ryan reynolds
This movie is like 90% slapstick comedy and Sandra Bullock who I generally like plays a character that is just unlikeable.
Good movies written and/or directed by women, arranged by year. Will continually add more as I see them. Click "Read…
