Product Description


Rom-com favorite Sandra Bullock and the affably charming Ryan Reynolds’s superb chemistry turn The Proposal from otherwise standard romantic-comedy fare to one that is entertaining and sure to garner laughs. Margaret (Sandra Bullock) is a workaholic, tyrannical book editor (reminiscent of The Devil Wears Prada) who suddenly finds her career in jeopardy as she faces deportation back to Canada. Her solution is to simply fake an engagement to her unsuspecting assistant Andrew (Ryan Reynolds), who in turn blackmails her for a promotion. However, when Margaret is forced to head to Alaska with Andrew to visit his family in an effort to make their story believable to the deportation officers, they soon realize that their plan may not be so simple after all. The supporting cast of Dad (Craig T. Nelson), Mom (Mary Steenburgen), and kooky Grandma (Betty White, still a scene-stealer at 87) is great casting that makes for many amusing scenes. Bottom line: witty Reynolds and Bullock are perfect sparring partners for each other and not half bad to look at either. --Lisanne Chastain

4.0 out of 5 stars Déjà vu Dec 17 2009
It was odd, when I watched The Prosposal, everything seemed like I had already seen it before. That's what chick flicks are, I suppose. However, the movie was quite entertaining, and I laughed and smiled throughout it.

Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is an editor, whose assistant, Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), works as a slave for her, hoping to attain a position as an editor within a few years. He knows everything about her, yet she doesn't bother to know anything about him. Everybody in the office hates her because all she seems to care about is her job.

One day, she is informed that something is wrong with her documents and she is going to get deported, even though she is Canadian - I don't know why a Canadian would get deported from the US, but that's what happened in the movie.

As things turn out, she asks Andrew to lie to everyone, saying that they're engaged so that she won't get deported. The lie, however, goes out of hand. Will Margaret get what she wants? Or will Andrew get sent to jail and fined $250,000 for lying for Margaret? Or will something else happen?

Sandra Bullock is one of my favorite female stars, so it was no surprise that she gave a fine performance as Margaret in The Proposal (Single Disc Widescreen). She's a lovely, likable person in real life and was perfect casting for this role of a New York editor who blackmails her assistant (Andrew, played by Ryan Reynolds) into proposing to her so she can avoid deportation to Canada. Turn-about being fair play, he then blackmails her for a promotion. Although she's a workaholic and a demanding boss, she's really a sweet, mixed-up young woman; blackmail is out of character for her, but she's desperate...

When Andrew takes her to his parent's mansion in Alaska to meet them, they're surprised when he announces they're getting married. The trip is a ruse to convince the deportation officer of the sincerity of the engagement.

The women in the family (mother, played by Mary Steenburgen, and grandmother, Betty White) treat Margaret with utmost respect and learn to love her. Having never enjoyed life with a close-knit family, Margaret develops strong feelings for them. And in the course of staying in their home, she learns what a great guy Andrew really is.

Predictably, Margaret and Andrew develop feelings for each other, yet neither will admit it, preferring to spar instead. The family dog causes most of the hilarious scenes between the couple, not to mention Andrew's lovable grandmother. (Who doesn't love the irrepressible Betty White, still a scene-stealer at 87?)

The only hold-out is Andrew's father who is disappointed in his son for not following in his footsteps; he tries to thwart their plans by conniving with the deportation officer.

The movie was well done, though I think that the people making the movie and doing the editing know the story line and unfortunately forget that the viewers don't have the background - would be helpful to have more scenes giving some insight.
