Calvin and I always try to catch a movie on a weekend or weekday night to destress and we decided to catch The Proposal! It’s been a long time since Sandra Bullock starred in a comedy other than Miss Congeniality so I was looking forward to seeing this film for the longest time!
And I must say the movie was really really funny! Although I thought that the plot was a little unrealistic cos you are marrying someone whom you have hated for 3 years and loved for 3 days. Oh come on, how on earth is that logically possible? Unless it’s by God’s divine intervention. Haha..
I was actually quite surprised that Ryan Reynolds really did his role pretty well! I thought he was charming unlike all the other movies he has done before. This has got to be his best performance – main lead anyway.
Sandra Bullock’s wardrobe was simply amazing! I loved the black smart suit that she adorned. I love black power suits because they exude a sense of elegance and power. I like. 😛 But it’s so sad that she’s called ‘Poisonous Snake’, ‘Bitch’ etc. in the office (in the movie that is). But i guess, in a real office, people do say such stuff. 🙁 I certainly hope none of my employees have that kind of nickname for me. Haha..
Acting by Sandra’s the same – great. She’s just so into her character and she really depicted the modern day woman – powerful, authoritative, rich yet materialistic. The ‘family’ theme was certainly a heartwarming aspect of the movie or else, it will just be lame-o humour about a boss and her employee having to get hitched and her employee does so out of a promotion agreement.
Overall, the movie had its moments where you just can’t stop laughing. Well, I shouldn’t spoil the movie for you! So basically, go catch it while it’s still in the cinemas because you won’t want to miss out on this comedy!
If you have already watched it, let me know what you think of it!
