First I like Sandra Bullock. I can't think of any movie she's been in that I haven't liked, but she doesn't stand out as one of my favorite actress. Then there's Ryan Reynolds. I haven't seen very many movies that he's been it, but I do love him in all of the ones I've seen.
Yes, its a bit cliched, but aren't all romantic comedies. Yes, you already know how its going to end. But they do put in a few twits for you. Overall, its a fun date movie or even a girl's night movie.
I think there was a great concept behind this movie. And its not that it wasn't cleverly executed. More of the fact that I don't really seem to "get" a lot of comedies. I can't seem to really get into them, and stop taking them so seriously. There are some comedies I've really enjoyed (The Hangover), but this doesn't really compare. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't love it either.
I did enjoy the Biblical references, even though they weren't the most chronologically accurate. Cain & Abel one scene, Abraham and Issac the very next... that's not quite the way it went. But it clearly wasn't trying to be accurate. Unlike say 10,000 B.C., anyone remember that one?
Yes, it was funny, but if you're choosing between the two, go with The Proposal. And if you think I'm just choosing the more "girly movie," I asked the boy's opinion and he agrees that The Proposal is the one to see unless of course "you're under 18, then you'd probably like Year One better.
