We are going to be very truthful with you, if you didn’t like The Proposal, we are severely disappointed in you. This wonderful romantic comedy has humor, a great storyline and a wonderful cast. Do you know how hard that is to come by? Also, let’s not forget that romantic comedies seem to be on a decline in the past five years, which is disappointing in and of itself.
The Best Plotline
In reality, not everyone is going to have heard of or even watched The Proposal. But we are going to remedy that with this tempting morsel of an article. So, let’s introduce you.
Faced with deportation to her native Canada, high-powered book editor Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) says she’s engaged to marry Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), her hapless assistant. Andrew agrees to the charade, but imposes a few conditions of his own, including flying to Alaska to meet his eccentric family. With a suspicious immigration official always lurking nearby, Margaret and Andrew must stick to their wedding plan despite numerous mishaps.
We are book lovers at heart here at Fangirlish, so a romantic comedy storyline that centers around the publishing world pretty much sold itself to us in the first place.
But that isn’t all that The Proposal has. The cast is pretty kickass itself. Let’s start with Sandra Bullock, she is one of our favorite actresses. We can’t think of one movie she hasn’t been incredible in – Miss Congeniality, Practical Magic, Blind Spot and Bird Box to name a few. She is incredibly talented and funny as well.
Ryan Reynolds. The man also known for his hilarious sense of humor – especially towards wife Blake Lively. While, Green Lanter was a serious flop, he has made strides since and his acting is very solid. He is the cream of the crop in Hollywood and his looks don’t hurt either.
And finally, the most important member of the cast, our national treasure, a.k.a. Betty White. Do we really need to write what we love about Betty White? She is a precious human being that needs to be protected for generations to come. We tense every time we see her name trending on Twitter.
The Best Funny Moment
The Proposal has many a funny moment – the flight to Sitka, the proposal scene with the family, the baby maker blanket – there are just so many. However, one just is forever in our hearts and it takes place between Margaret (Sandra Bullock) and Annie (Betty White).
The Proposal just leaves you feeling satisfied and wholesome. Not a lot of movies do that anymore. So, if you need a good romantic comedy to watch, we highly recommend this one.
