Some people may think that the romantic comedy formula this movie uses is just old and stale. While this may be true, this movie turns it around a little bit and does whatever it wants to with it. And you know what, it works.
The synopsis goes like this. A boss from hell, played very well by Sandra Bullock, has to marry her secretary, also played pretty well by Ryan Reynolds, to keep from getting deported. The two travel to Alaska to announce to Ryan's parents that their getting married and the shennanigans begin.
First off, I just want to say that Betty White almost stole the movie with her hilarious performance of Gammy. Anyway, the two leads are very well connected and perform well for going from hating to liking each other. The movie has plenty of funny moments, some a bit stale but you just want to laugh.
The Proposal uses a stale formula but uses it well and this is one of the better romantic comedy.
