I have loved the work of Ryan Reynolds ever since I first saw him on screen.  He’s hilarious, he’s one of the best looking guys out there and he is married to Scarlett Johansson.  What could possibly get better than that?  He has monumental talent when it comes to being a comic actor, but it seems as though he just doesn’t choose movies that allow him to shine as much as he possibly can.  That’s certainly what I thought was happening all over again when I saw the first trailer for this film.  Now that it’s out on Blu-ray, you can see for yourself if I was correct in your own house.

Starting this October 13th, now available on Blu-ray Disc from Touchstone Home Entertainment comes another romantic comedy about people forced into a hilarious situation who then maybe end up falling in love anyway.  The Proposal – Blu-ray Disc is ready to come blasting out of your television screen and fill your living room with hilarity and some great family drama.  Bring home this great movie today!

Andrew has always wanted to be a book editor in New York City.  Yet, he is stuck as the personal assistant to Margaret, the best, most controlling and most evil editor in all of New York City and he loathes her for it.  But when her visa falls through, she is forced to pretend that they are getting married and makes him go along with it.  They make a deal that will keep her in America and help Andrew up the ladder at work.  A suspicious ICE agent doesn’t believe that this marriage is real, so he works hard to disprove it.  Meanwhile, Andrew and Margaret head up to his parents’ place in Alaska, a town that Andrew’s family pretty much owns.  The two learn a whole lot about each other and have some truly awkward moments, but when everything is about to come crashing down, will real love be found anywhere?  This movie stars Ryan Reynolds, Sandra Bullock, Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson, Betty White and Malin Akerman and is directed by Anne Fletcher.

There are a whole bunch of special features in this Blu-ray Disc.  Most impressively, there is a digital copy of this movie for use on your portable media device.  Also, there is a selection of deleted scenes with optional audio commentary, a great alternate ending with optional audio commentary, an optional audio commentary for the entire film and some outtakes and other hilarities from life on the set.

As far as romantic comedies go, this movie is actually enjoyable and there are four reasons why that is the case.  The first reason is that Sandra Bullock is incredibly attractive, even though she is not made for acting.  The second reason is that Ryan Reynolds will make you laugh a couple of times, so it’s not a complete loss.  The third reason is that Malin Akerman is in this movie and she’s a complete delight in anything at all.  The fourth reason is that the guy who plays Oscar in The Office plays a supporting role and he is far funnier than I ever would have thought was possible from watching that show.  But for being a romantic comedy, this movie is actually pretty sad and tinged with a whole lot more regret than is normal.  Even when everything is great, there are reservations.  It’s a safe movie for guys to watch, because it’s even a little sadder than reality.

Say yes to this Proposal today!

This Blu-ray Disc is available at Amazon.com.
