The Proposal

I love Sandra Bullock and now love Ryan Reynolds after watching “The Proposal.”  There were some really funny parts!!  I was in tears after watching some of the funny parts – oh man!  I love where the movie was shot also and would love to visit this part of our country some day.  One of my favorite parts was when she was dancing in the forest with the grandma.  It was so funny!!!  Oh and of course we can’t forget Ramone – hilarious!!!  If you haven’t seen this romantic comedy, be sure to check it out as soon as possible.  I am so glad that this is now a DVD we own and I will be watching it again soon.  Remember, it is rated PG-13 and is not suitable for children.

“The Proposal” was released on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 13th, 2009 by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.  Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) terrorizes her publishing house co-workers with her abrasive, take-no-prisoners management style, especially her overworked assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds). But when Margaret is threatened with deportation to her native Canada because of an immigration technicality, the quick-thinking exec announces that she and Andrew are engaged to be married. Ambitious Andrew agrees to go along with her scheme—if there’s a long-awaited promotion in it for him. Everything is going according to Margaret’s plan, until an overzealous immigration official makes it his business to prove that the couple’s engagement is bogus. To demonstrate her commitment to her new fiancé, Margaret agrees to celebrate the 90th birthday of his colorful grandmother (Betty White) — in Alaska. The editrix’s type-A ways put her at odds with her eccentric future in-laws with hilarious consequences, until the Paxtons teach Margaret a thing or two about family.
