3 Reasons Why "The Proposal" is the Perfect Film to See With Your Mom and Grandmother

1. The lovable Sandra Bullock - I don't want to be too repetitive, but I love Sandra Bullock! She is back to what she does best and she is as adorable as ever. Plus, she looks better than ever - and naturally beautiful not botoxed and surgically enhanced like other over 40 "girl next door" actresses (i.e Meg Ryan, Renee Zellweger..).

2. It's good, clean fun - I can't really say that I really laughed out loud, but my mother and my grandmother did - which made me happy. It is rare for a film these days to appeal to three different generations. It had no sex scenes, obscenities or violence and yet was completely entertaining. can be done.

3. Romantic Comedy done right - I'm not really a fan of this genre, but there are few that I really enjoy - 2 Weeks Notice and 13 Going on 30 come to mind. I think I enjoyed this film because it was more about human behaviors and perceptions about each other than the actual love story. Sandra's character Margaret Tate is a complete bitch, however once we realize why she is this way she is she becomes completely vulnerable and we sympathize with her. I appreciate the love story because it is about a couple who get to know each other and then to their surprise fall in love rather than a love story about 2 strangers falling in love.
