Star Cinema Review of The Proposal

proposal1The Propsal Rated: PG-13 Running Time: 1 hour 47 minutes 2.5 stars out of 4 You already know what's going to happen in this movie, but Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds pull it off quite well.  Bullock plays a high powered book editor in New York and Reynolds plays her assistant.  She's from Canada, but never got her VISA squared away and is about to be deported.  In a desperate attempt to stay in the United States she orders Reynolds to marry her. They head to the U.S. Immigration office where Bullock makes the mistake of telling the officer that she's going with Reynolds to visit his parents over the weekend.  She doesn't realize his parents live in Alaska.  Can these two opposites get along and actually find love?  Cue the pop hit of the day and watch the comedy unfold. Both Bullock and Reynolds do a solid job together.  Betty White plays Reynolds grandma and plays her part well including being an over zealous patron at the local strip club.  However, the shock value of an older woman like White mixing it up with a stripper has already been done recently.  How do you top Cloris Leachman french kissing  John Stamos at the Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget or dry humping Jack Black on NBC's 30 Rock? Oscar Nunez who plays Oscar on NBC's The Office plays a waiter, stripper, store clerk and is funny but out of shape guys in G-Strings doesn't seem that funny anymore.   Will Ferrell and Chris Farley have already done  it so many times before. This is a good date movie and you'll definitely get some laughs despite the fact that it's a text book romantic comedy. starcinemaSee The Proposal at Star Cinema in Fitchburg.  Click here for showtimes.

the Proposal followed the basic chick flick formula, but the acting was quality enough that the wife and I actually really enjoyed it

World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling."  It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically,...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did....
