The Proposal (2009)
Critic Consensus: Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds exhibit plenty of chemistry, but they're let down by The Proposal's devotion to formula.
When high-powered book editor Margaret faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she's actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon assistant 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.

Critic Reviews for The Proposal
They may as well have called this one 'Mis-Matched Sham Wedding Comedy #57513' for all the effort it makes to shake new life out of a tattered genre.
A fresh twist to a proposal that starts out as all business but becomes something warmer and fuzzier before it's over.
The comedy is some good moments, and the chemistry between Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds is strong, but it's too cute and predictable
Simple and clichéd, yet refreshing. As long as you're hell-bent on seeing a romantic comedy, The Proposal will deliver.
annoyingly predictable and barely watchable piece of Hollywood routine
Audience Reviews for The Proposal
Cute movie, Ryan Reynolds as always is good. Sandra Bullock is funny and her and Reynolds have a decent chemistry. Betty White really shines in the supporting role.
It's a really good ol' rom-com that actually makes you laugh. It's a bit formulaic but I really like Bullock's and Reynolds' performances.
Only a charisma piece but there's oodles of that charisma. You'll hate yourself for liking it. Okay, okay, hate's a strong word. Maybe its a better chick flick than I give it credit for being.
