Movie Review-The Proposal

Last night, Mr. McB and I wanted to catch a movie. We wanted to have a relaxing evening away from home. So, we invited two of our best friends to join us. There were several movies Mr. McB and I were interested in seeing. However, our friends had already seen The Ugly Truth, they do not like scary movies, and Mr. McB wasn't in the mood for Ice Age. So, The Proposal it was.

Neither couple had eaten very much for dinner. So, we decided to stop at a little ice cream stand before the movie. Mr. McB decided on nothing and to be honest, my milkshake was not very good at all. Oh well!

We headed up to the movies and all bought stuff up there. If we get concessions, we always try to get the large size b/c our theater offers free refills on the large drinks and popcorns.

The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds was fabulous. It is your classic humorous love story. Sandra Bullock plays an editor Margaret Tate who is originally from Canada. She is going to be deported; so, she tells her bosses she is marrying her assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds). However, the deportation office goes through a lot of checking up to make sure the marriage isn't fraud. So Tate goes to Alaska for Paxton's grandmother's (Betty White) birthday, where they are to tell everyone they are engaged. The movie is sweet with a lot of humorous parts in it. I won't give away the ending, but it is one of the best movies I have seen lately.

Everything was great, but the movie theater was way too hot. I was about to die. Mr. McB and I are thinking about a few more movies tonight. :)

Hi...I'm a new follower (found you through Summer's blog). :)

Thanks for the review of the movie. I've been wanting to see it, but Future Mr wasn't so convinced. I'll have to do a little more sweet talking...hehe!

I loved this movie! Such great chemistry between the characters.

Lindsey said...

I really want to see that movie! I'm so glad you liked it. Now I will have to see it this weekend. I'm excited!

Did you end up seeing The Ugly Truth yet? I saw it last weekend and it was pretty funny but a little raunchy. I don't know if you like those type of movies but my husband & I laughed a lot. :)

That was a great movie! My husband also went and liked it. Of course, he heard Sandra Bullock had a nude scene so that made it easier to entice him! :)

I want to see this! Sadly, I think I'll have to wait until it comes out on PPV; I'll have to watch it when the hubs is out of town since he doesn't want to see it! BOO!
