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.

One minute you're watching a 21st-century remake of His Girl Friday, the next you're having to endure some awful, dumbed-down "women's picture". Bullock deserves better.

Sandra Bullock is teamed up with Ryan Reynolds, and each star's face has a waxy immobility that has nothing to do with Botox; the pure awfulness of the script has paralysed their facial muscles.

This turns out to be another bad choice for Bullock who, without playing badly, sinks in the general morass.

More like a blind date from hell than a feel-good romantic comedy.

It's quite a testament to Bullock and Reynolds that despite all the implausible frippery, they still make you root for their characters. Mostly they make you root for them to be paired together again in a better movie.

The story is cute, although a little forced, but for the basic romantic comedy, you could do a lot worse. Sure, it's predictable, but the flick works and is quite satisfying in the end.

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

The blu-ray tries to whet your appetite for going HD by also adding an additional deleted scene.

It's not awful, certainly not memorable and - despite the words of at least one quote whore - it's not "the year's best comedy."

a morass of clichés

Tailored to fit Sandra Bullock more snugly than the antique wedding gown altered for the star during the final act, the film begins to fall apart at the seams after its focus wanders from its promising screwball premise...
