We almost never go the movies on Saturday night. If we do, it’s usually an early feature, but I don’t know, I was just not in the mood to watch John Travolta play a killer in Pelham 1,2,3. I was online ready to buy tickets and noticed that there was a sneak preview offering for Sandra Bullock’s new flick, The Proposal.
We came to it with low expectations. I kept reminding Tuvia it would just be fun and it was, for the first 10 minutes. Sandra plays the Wicked Boss from the West (a la Merle Streep in The Devil Wears Prada) and she was great. I was laughing out loud with the rest of the full house. Tuvia was laughing too. BUT when the story moved north to Alaska, we were moved to silence, with only a chuckle here and there.
I can’t speak for the rest of the crowd but for us when they went north, we went south. BORING and contrived.
So for 10 minutes of fun, is it worth it? Thumbs Down for me!
Now what we loved was the walk from out theater (16) to the theater’s entrance. Wow, movie masses! I felt like a tourist in New York City, Wow, all those tall buildings!
