THE PROPOSAL - A ROMANTIC COMEDY WORTH SEEING

I do not remember the last time I saw a romantic comedy. I consider them chick flicks and stay away from them. I went to go see this only because this may be Betty White's last film. It was worth every penny, except for the metrosexual guy sitting next to me with his girlfriend. I truly thought he was going to start singing show tunes. He seemed to enjoy it more than most of the women.

Anyway, Sandra Bullock is facing deportation. She is an impossible boss, who is hated by everyone. To solve her problem she forces her executive assistant to marry her. To prove their love to the INS they go off to Alaska for his grandmother's 90th. The grandmother is played by Betty White. She can still deliver a line with the best of them. She was great.

The scene with the eagle taking off with the dog would have been funnier except for the fact years ago we concluded that a hawk did the same thing to my 17 1/2 year old rat terrier. Sandra Bullock chasing the eagle was funny.

As romantic comedies go, love wins the day. The film is about the journey to the two of them realizing they love each other and always have.

Okay, off to brunch - go enjoy this film.
