The Proposal

How can you not be in love with a guy like that (picture supplied for Josh's benefit)? Ryan Reynolds is one of the most charasmatic people acting today. Anyone who ever saw Two Guys a Girl...(Pizza Place went on to do a spinoff) knew that he was destined for great things. It's not easy to upstage Nathan Fillion!

My brother likes to see himself as a Iowa version of Ryan Reynolds (and he might not be wrong). He's like Austin Powers, women want him and men want to be him. If for no other reason than he's dating ScarJo, I mean, come on.

But how's his new movie? Meh. He definitely saves it from being trash. If someone else had been playing his role, the movie would have fallen out of the sky like SkyLab (topical). I would say it's better than his last romantic lead Definitely Maybe.

In typical romantic comedy style, woman has trouble with INS, uses her abused Admin Asst to have a green card marriage. Hilarity ensues.

Also, as useless as Malin Ackerman usually is, she is in this movie to only earn a paycheck. At least Betty White, Coach and Doc Brown's wife have things to do. The standout would probably be Oscar Munez from the Office. He works harder than anyone I have ever seen. But hey, its Alaska. They don't have a lot of people.

Not worth your trouble in theaters because there is a lot of better stuff out there right now. Put it on the queue and wait for DVD.

Did you enjoy it?
Yes, mariginally.

Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you rent it?

Would you buy it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
Yes, but turn it quickly unless its the part where the...(I won't spoil it but it involves a dog).
