The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds is a delightfully entertaining movie. Even though the movie is pretty predictable, it is refreshingly funny and romantic.
Sandra & Ryan really are a good match! Not only are they a cute couple, but they appear to interact naturally with each other.
Betty White, Mary Steenburgen and Craig T. Nelson each added their own special touch of fun and awesomeness in their supporting roles. The total cast really made this movie one of the best romantic comedies I have ever seen.
Review of The Proposal
The Proposal (Single-Disc Edition)A hilarious romantic comedy that will keep everyone laughing!
This is one of the best movies I have seen in decades. My son took me and my husband to see this movie the week it opened. The guys really went just to accompany me, but they ended up being thoroughly entertained too.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I get really tired of going to the theater, paying astronomical admission prices, then going home more depressed than I was before I went. Oh wait, I wasn't depressed before I left home!
Regardless, that was not the case with this movie. I actually felt lighter and happier when I left the theater and wonders of all wonders, I was laughing. When this happens, it is an occasion to rejoice; and write a review!
Be warned though, there is a nude, well mostly nude, scene. However, it was so funny that I forgot to be embarrassed.
If I had read the screenplay first, I never would have pictured Sandra Bullock playing the part of Margaret Tate. Gratefully, I was not on the casting committee because she certainly is the perfect choice.
She is extremely entertaining without being crude, rude or socially unacceptable. Well, maybe she was a bit rude in this movie, but she is still somehow very lovable.
Surprise, surprise, surprise! Ryan Reynolds is truly remarkable!
While he has never especially impressed me in the past, I couldn't even tell you what I have seen him in before, he was phenomenal as Andrew Paxton. You absolutely must see this movie! His expressions alone should make this a box office hit.
Nothing less than an Oscar deserving performance!
While he may not have received an Oscar, he did win MTV's Best Comedic Performance Award for this movie.

Others Opinions of "The Proposal"
"The chemical energy between Bullock and Reynolds is fresh and irresistible"
The Hollywood Reporter by Kevin Lally
"The situations might be formulaic, but the teamwork of the two leads brings them to sparkling life"
Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert
"Recycles a plot that was already old when Tracy and Hepburn were trying it out. You see it coming from a great distance away. As it draws closer, you don't duck out of the way, because it is so cheerfully done, you don't mind being hit by it"
Los Angeles Time by Betsy Sharkey
"Just a good old-fashioned romance, one in which people actually bring out the best in one another rather than the worst. How novel is that?"
