If there was one reason to go see The Proposal, it would be Betty White. I think Theo and I have already made it clear how much we love her, I mean, how can you not? Her timing is flawless, and she stole the movie. No argument, there were a lot of funny moments in this, but Betty somehow makes the corny/expected moments in any romantic comedy funny. Stuff you would, if anyone else said it, roll your eyes at and sigh- when Betty says it, the entire theater explodes laughing.
Sandra Bullock, of course, is her normal funny/pretty/charming self. I am a personal fan, and wasn't disappointed. I know Theo doesn't really care for her too much, but even if you aren't a Sandra fan... the movie won't disappoint. She and Ryan also have a great chemistry together, and really are funny together. I mean, the love story was a bit far fetched...but what did we really expect from this?
We all know what this movie is: a Sunday afternoon romantic comedy you take your mom or grandma to. You don't have to think about it too much, it's just fun. It is the perfect movie for that, hands down. For what it is, this is a four-star romantic comedy. Not a four star movie, but at least it doesn't lie and pretend to be something more meaningful, like any Jennifer Aniston movie out there.
Most important thing to remember? Betty is bomb.
