    The Proposal

    Has anyone seen this movie? It stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Sandra plays Margaret Tate a book editor who is a bigwig at her company but turns out her work Visa has expired and she has been deported back to Canada. So in order to stay in the country and keep her job, she blackmails her assistant to marry her with the promise of giving him an editor job. Unfortunately things go crazy from there. Betty White is in it and she is hilarious. Loved it.

    Though it was a fairly predictable chick flick, I really enjoyed it.

    It was okay. One thumb up.

    My biggest problem with this movie was that Ryan and Sandra did not have chemistry. I didn't believe that they were a couple. Ryan had more chemistry with the actress that played Gertrude. By the end of the movie, I seriously thought that

    he would end up with Gertrude
    . So it was surprising when

    Gertrude came into the room and told him to chase after Margaret (Sandra's character)

    I have to agree with you about the chemistry (or lack thereof), CrossingGuard. I did enjoy the movie overall, however.

    I enjoyed it also. Like I said, it was okay. Looove Betty White. My favorite scene was

    Re: The Proposal

    Talked my boyfriend into going last weekend to see The Proposal. I liked it, he thought that Sandra Bullock used a body double for the one scene. yeah, it was predictable, but when all the other movies are special effects laden, it is nice to be entertained by just old-fashion fun. 3 1/2 stars out of 5.

    I also agree with this. I love Sandra Bullock, and I thought that Ryan Reynolds character was great and he did a great job with the character, there was just a lack of chemistry.

    Re: The Proposal

    I have to watch anything with Ryan Reynolds...something about those eyes and his great comic timing. And I like Sandra Bullock quite a bit too. They had ok chemistry in this movie, but the best bits, imo, were when she was chasing the dog that had been grabbed by the eagle (or hawk?) and when she and grandma (Betty White)were chanting/rapping in the woods. Priceless!! Oh, and when the waiter/stripper/store guy/minister all turned out to be the same guy - he was a hoot.

    It did seem like the ending was rather contrived and rushed, but all in all it was a pleasant and entertaining movie. One lady in the theater I was in apparently thought it was so freakin' hilarious that she totally cackled all the way through it, even when everyone else was quiet. It got to the point where I thought I was going to have to go have a word or two or three with her about disturbing others.
    I enjoy the escapism of reality television. Beats the heck out of worrying about your REAL life!!
