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

Olivia Newton-John was all over the radio in the 1970s, with hits that included "Have You Never Been Mellow," "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)" and of course those songs from the movie "Grease." But not a lot of people had good memories about "Please...

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

Free downloads: The Bayonets
If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

World's Worst iPod: Information Society "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"

Pool party's are the best! ...Until someone decides to drive a vehicle in for a swim. Someone should have told her Jeeps don't make good pool toys, and aren't boyant. Check it out, it'll make you feel better about that time you walked out...
