A friend of mine had seen this in the theatre, and she told me that it was hilarious, and that I ought to just buy it. Well, I don't always have the money to go out and start buying up movies at random, but I went ahead and rented it for the time being on the day of it's release and gave it a watch. This movie was downright hysterical. Some of what happened in it was somewhat predictable, but not so much so that it didn't keep my interest. The idea for this one was certainly a new and refreshing idea for a romantic comedy, and it was hilarious. I laughed through out most of the whole entire thing. It was also quite heartwarming in spots, especially at the end. The cast was sensational. Sandra Bullock is among one of my favorite actresses, and she was good as ever in this. Ryan Reynolds was quite good himself. The whole entire cast was great and had such excellent on screen chemistry together. If you like a good romantic comedy that is very funny but also heart warming, and are looking for a refreshing new one to watch, I definitely recommend checking this one out. You won't be disappointed!

This is one of the most enjoyable movies I've seen in a long time. I love Sandra Bullock in anything. First movie I've seen Ryan Reynolds in, he is a revelation.......hilariously funny, just the expression on his face can say it all. Betty White is a darling as usual. If you want to see a really funny, touching, feel-good movie from beginning to end, this is it.

Sandra Bullock (with her pony tail) and Ryan Reynolds were meant for this movie. And the scences in Alaska where beautiful (not great). Betty White was PERFECT as GrandMa Annie!! Craig T. Nelson just didn't seem to right, just my view.

You've seen this movie a dozen times, but Sandra and Ryan are so good together you just sit back and enjoy it. The scenery is gorgeous, and the supporting cast is great (except for Craig Nelson--who came off as a jerk). Great date movie.

Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is a book publisher, and the scourge of all those who work under her. When she finds out that she's up for deportation back to Canada, though, because her visa has run out, she cons her assistant, Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), into marrying her so she can stay in the country. As the INS starts looking into their case Margaret must go to Alaska with Andrew to meet his family and to learn more about each other to pass the examination. Sandra Bullock is America's sweetheart. There is doubtful a person in this country who doesn't like her, and 2009 showed that more than ever as she broke her personal box office twice in the same year after 22 years in the game. She also accomplished that by not playing by anyone's rules but her own. While most people are searching for project after project to keep their name out there, but Bullock hasn't appeared onscreen since 2007's Premonition. So after 2 years out of the spotlight how does her return film fare? Very well, actually. Don't get me wrong, this romantic comedy doesn't add anything new to the cannon of romantic comedies, and that was probably intentional. While we all might want a movie that's going to stimulate us in a new way, we can't always expect that. This movie does a great job at making it enjoyable enough to keep your mind off that fact that it's not really feeding you anything new. The actors are effortlessly likable, and have great chemistry together. Had the movie had made any other casting choices this movie would have gone down as just another romcom. It's interesting to me that Bullock chose this role to be her return film. Typically she chooses characters that are immensely likable, but even in this role you still like her even if she is a total ego maniacal control freak. Ryan Reynolds is also a lot of fun to watch, and he's no different here. The real star of this movie though is Betty White as Andrew's grandmother who's turning 90 over the weekend they come to visit. Of course, I don't think anyone doubted the power of Betty White to steal every scene she's in. I highly recommend this movie, sure it's somewhat cliché, but it's a lot of fun. It's definitely a good movie to just shut off your brain and just enjoy even if you don't typically like romantic comedies. 4/5

Betty White, Mary Steenburgen, Ryan Reynolds, Craig T. Nelson, and Sandra Bullock are a riot in The Proposal. Their antics will have viewers laughing-out-loud at times. Kevin the dog is too cute and cuddly. The ladies adventure to the strip club is over the top. This DVD has an engaging and funny storyline along with some real "characters" to tickle your funny bone. If you enjoy romantic-comedies, you will probably find this one delightful. It's good for an evening at home movie.
