The Proposal DVD inside scoop
The Proposal, starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, lands on DVD and Blu-ray October 13. The romantic comedy hit marked the return of Bullock to the genre and also launched Reynolds to the A-list.
In the following clips from The Proposal, SheKnows gets inside the film that is equally funny as it is romantic. Seriously, the story of a boss who makes her assistant marry her in order to keep his job and her citizenship, The Proposal is one of the year's best romantic comedies. Perhaps, one could even call it timely given the David Letterman situation.
Director Anne Fletcher (27 Dresses) helmed The Proposal and her added commentary upon a second viewing provides priceless insight.
The big news on The Proposal's arrival on home video is the addition of the DVD and Blu-ray bonus featured alternative ending.
Rarely does a film's alternative ending live up to what we saw in theaters, and in The Proposal the results are worthy of a look -- either method of achieving closure on the film works.

The Proposal: what it's about
Margaret Tate (Bullock) terrorizes her publishing house co-workers with her abrasive, take-no-prisoners management style, especially her overworked assistant Andrew Paxton (Reynolds). When Margaret faces deportation to her native Canada, suddenly her and Andrew are engaged.
The duo head off to Alaska and hilarity ensues. SheKnows wishes for a little more of the Bullock-Reynolds pairing in the corporate America world, but their comic chemistry is still top notch navigating his family and the wilds of Alaska.
