The Proposal

Romantic comedy with Sandra Bullock as bitchy office boss Maggie and  Ryan Reynolds as her hen-pecked employee Andrew.

When the high-powered Maggie faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she's actually engaged to Andrew (who she's tormented for years). He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own. The unlikely couple heads to Alaska to meet his quirky family and the always-in-control city girl finds herself in one comedic fish-out-of-water situation after another. With an impromptu wedding in the works and an immigration official on their tails, Margaret and Andrew reluctantly vow to stick to the plan despite the precarious consequences.

The Proposal won't catch any bouquets for originality, but in terms of a bended-knee pitch for the affections of women -- including Ryan Reynolds’ boyish charms, a hip granny and even a beyond-adorable puppy -- this romantic comedy pretty much pulls out all the stops.

It's contrived and predictable, formulaic and derivative, yet The Proposal has its own charm.

Nice to see Bullock back doing what she does best.

What we’re left with is some nice scenery, actors who should know better trudging their way through tired old set pieces, and the usual try-hard rom-com banter we’ve seen a million times before.

The situations might be formulaic, but the teamwork of the two leads brings them to sparkling life.

For all its tiresome structural competence, there is something cruel and reactionary at the heart of The Proposal. Then again, the room full of women I watched it with were laughing from beginning to end. Clearly they know something that I don't.

A movie with lots of oppotunies which could have been much better used
