Product Description

Product Description

Sandra Bullock is at her funniest in the fresh, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy THE PROPOSAL. On the verge of being deported and losing the high-powered job she lives for, the controlling Margaret announces she's engaged to her unsuspecting, put-upon assistant Andrew (Ryan Reynolds). After proposing a few demands of his own, the mismatched couple heads to Alaska where they have four short days to convince his quirky family and a very skeptical immigration agent that their charade is real. Featuring a star-studded supporting cast, including Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson and the delightfully inappropriate Betty White, this madcap comedy will have you saying "yes" to THE PROPOSAL again and again.

Amazon.ca

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

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?

Format: DVD
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.

Format: DVD
Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock), a high-powered and much disliked editor, is facing deportation back to Canada unless she can force her assistant (Ryan Reynolds) to marry her in a hurry. He reluctantly agrees and takes her to Alaska to meet his family which includes his 90-year old grandmother (Betty White).

I liked this movie a lot. Bullock is talented, mature, and naturally funny and Reynolds is very likable. On the down side, Bullock almost looks old enough to be his mother and that was a bit distracting. The story has certainly been done before, but the actors' charm makes it feel fresh and Betty White provides some really belly laughs. The exquisite Sitka scenery really had me fooled; I read that it was filmed in Massachusetts with CGI mountains.

This rom-com has a familiar plot but clever writing and an appealing cast. Recommended.

Margaret Tate, "Satan's mistress" (Sandra Bullock), is a high powered publisher and Canadian citizen. She finds due to a few faux pas, she is about to be deported. So she bullies her executive assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds) into marriage, thus "The Proposal". However the tide may have turned when she sees his home and family.

Many people think Grandma Annie (Betty White) makes the movie with her dry one-liners and attitude. And a lot of Betty white the actor shows through Grandma Annie the character.

The movie mostly takes place in a mock up of what Sitka Alaska should look like. It makes you want to go there. One of my favorite scenes is when Margaret is warned not to let the puppy outside or the eagles will snatch it.

Be sure to listen to the voice over commentary. Most voice over commentaries are dry dissertations from film historians or drunks that do not remember the movie. This commentary however is quite interesting and informative.

Also be sure to watch the alternate ending.

Again Blu-ray is just Blu-ray so I will not bore you with the details.
