Favorite Post (Entertainment): The Proposal

Renowned editor in chief, Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock), is about to be deported back to Canada due to her Visa expire. In order to continue her life in America, she forces her assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds) to marry her under the condition to promote him to editor. To prove the immigration officer the marriage is "true", Margaret and Andrew head to Alaska to meet his family and spend a weekend. During the days spent there, Margaret remembers what is like to have a loving and caring family since her parents died when she was only 16. She realizes this and faces her fears before she hurts such a good family more than she already did. Nomiated for the Golden Globe, 2 other wins and 7 nominations. Watch trailer here.

Director: Anne Fletcher
Genre: Comedy, Romance

Although being released in 2009, after watching this film I realized why it was nominated so many times. It is the perfect combination of comedy and romance that engages the viewer completely. The plot is incredibly well made and the movie was above my expectations. Sandra Bullock is a awesome actress that contributed to the movie's success. In my opinion, my favorite character would be Andrew. Although never seeing Ryan Reynolds in many movies, he is an amazing actor that fits perfectly with his role. I loved the film and recommend it to all individuals who like a good comedy.
