The Proposal

If a film is made by Touchstone and/or Disney it is almost always bound to be enjoyable. Add into the mix that it is a romantic comedy and stars Sandra Bullock and satisfaction is assured. For sure, Him Behind the Wheel and myself will be sniveling into our sleeves happily at the end. A real feel-good movie.

That said, what makes it special? The location was unusual, and I refuse to spoil the surprise by going into it in detail. However, it did evoke memories of an area where we lived for nine years. The plot is a bit predictable in that the two protaganists – boss and assistant – start off loathing each other……. and yes, there is a happy ending. But the twists along the way keep the audience guessing.

A pleasant, frothy and entertaining mix with plenty of laughs and a bit of disbelief along the way. Would I buy it? Already have; it is a film I would like to see again – the kind you watch with popcorn and tissues.

    You have a sparkling skill with movie reviews! This was so good about a movie that my husband and I really enjoyed together.

    Sandra Bullock has lived her life this year with a kind of class and style that I wasn’t sure existed in Hollywood anymore. I’d see any of her movies, but definitely like some more than others. This one was one for the tops list.
