Movie Review: The Proposal

As I mentioned on Friday I'm a big Sandra Bullock fan and I couldn't wait to see this movie. And I was in no way disappointed, it was hilarious and oh so cute.

The movie basically revolves around Sandra Bullock's character, Margaret, who is a head editor at a publishing firm and the fact that she is threatened with deportation back to Canada due to a declined Visa. With that, she black mails her assistant, Ryan Reynold's character Andrew, into marrying her so she can stay in the country. From there they go to meet Andrew's family in Alaska and pretty much the rest of the movie takes place there and follows their crazy weekend.

Seriously, there are so many great things I can say about this movie I almost don't even know where to start. First of all, I loved Sandra and Ryan's chemistry, it was perfect. I wasn't a hundred percent sure about it at first but after watching them on screen I was sold. Their banter had me cracking up the whole movie and even their "oh we sort of really do like each other"ness was just as cute and funny.

Not only were Sandra and Ryan great, but Betty White was amazing. Seriously she had some of the best lines in the movie. And her forest chant scene, absolutely priceless. If you see the movie you'll know what I'm talking about and man it's amazing.

All in all I thought the movie (although a bit predictable at times, but really what movie isn't?) was so funny. Between the infamous nude scene (hello Ryan Reynolds!!), the every man Ramon, and Sandra's city girl character it was a great comedy. So guy or girl (yes really, guys will even laugh, I heard plenty in the theater) I say you see this movie and have a grand ole time. Enjoy!

Ahhh! I want to see this so much (mainly for the nude scene), but I bet they'll cut it out here in Hong Kong (dang censors). Next trip to the States, I guess.
