I made my way over to the theater yesterday to experience the sugary romcom goodness of Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock in “The Proposal”. At first one would assume this to be yet another in a string of disposable romantic flicks but hark I tell you, hark! This movie showcases the usual syrupy sweet formula, bitch boss gets in a predicament and underling is forced to help. The movie takes you to the land of cheesiness but never allows you to get off the train. Sandra’s relentlessly bitchy boss is fun to watch coupled with 2 tons of snarky jokes executed with amazing comedic timing by Mr. Reynolds and his ubiquitous abs. The dingy old rom-com formula has been tweaked to near perfection and you’re mostly just excited to be along for the ride.
Sandra Bullock reminds me of why I liked her so much in the first place, she’s not typical and her comedy chops, all slapstick and brilliant in her $2,000 5 inch stilettos. Betty White does an amazing job in the supporting slot, coming close to stealing the movie from Reynolds, but his buff buffness would not allow it. If you’re a dude, enjoy the light comedy and Sandra Bullock’s practically nude shower scene and if you’re a lady then go so you can dream about washing your clothes on Reynolds washboard abs while he strokes your hair and whispers naughty self aware quips in your ear.
Oh and here’s a little eye candy or spank material for all the ladies out there. Thanks for visiting us here at dangerbowie.com, there’s plenty more where this came from. Wink*.
