I went into the screening of the Sandra Bullock-Ryan Reynolds romantic comedy "The Proposal" with very low expectations. And I came out with a tummy ache from laughing my booty off.
The best part of the film is the intelligent script by Peter Chiarelli. The film's main conceit -- bitchy boss threatens her assistant to marry her for fear of deportation to her homeland of Canada -- works because of the incredibly charming actors, including the stellar supporting cast, and the rhythm of director Anne Fletcher.
Watch for Betty White (Gammy Annie) and the omnipresent Oscar Nunez as Ramone.
Sure, the film has a predictable outcome, but there are some twists and turns that will make you giggle like a blushing bride
I enjoyed this film, and you will too! Watch it in theaters, don't wait until it premieres on your next flight back home.
Take a look at the super hilarious funnyordie.com clip featuring Bullock, Reynolds, and White.

"Girls Just Want to Have Fun," the 1985 comedy starring Helen Hunt and Sarah Jessica Parker, is getting a makeover!
And the film is being developed as a potential flick for Miley Cyrus!
The script is being written by Michelle Morgan.
The moves! The music! The movie! This great relic of the 80s revolves around two friends who love dancing, boys, and the hit show "Dance TV."
Take a look at the original trailer, and see if you can imagine Miley in one of the characters. The Helen Hunt character perhaps?

Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin" Gets a Release Date! BUT We Have to Wait for, um, a Long Time!
We have to wait a year and a half before we can see Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn." International audiences will get the chance to see the movie first before the U.S. folks.
The film will be released in U.S. theaters on Dec. 23, 2011.
(For the production of the film, click here)
But the movie will launch internationally in late October and early November 2011. Why do international moviegoers get to see the film before Americans? Variety says:
The decision signals the two studios' belief that the property, which has been translated into 70 languages, shows stronger potential overseas than domestically. Not surprisingly, the film's cast skews international with Brit Jamie Bell starring as the intrepid young reporter. Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook round out the cast.
"Tintin" will be released in 3-D, and is the first of the planned film franchise. Director Peter Jackson is set to helm the second movie.

From the sea (“Finding Nemo”) to the race tracks (“Cars”) to faraway galaxies (“Wall-E”), Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios have been consistent in delighting us with great storytelling and filmmaking.
Now, the studios are taking us up, up, and away on one of their funniest adventures of all time. “Up” is the 10th Disney/Pixar movie and is definitely one of their best.

And here's my floating movie review of "Up", have fun!

I can see the trailer now:
One man against all odds...
One man with only one hope...to come home to his waiting family...
Columbia Pictures presents, "Saving Captain Richard Phillips" coming this summer...
HA! Just kidding
But just merely weeks after escaping from armed Somali Pirates, Columbia Pictures acquired the rights to the life and times of Captain Richard Phillips.
The studio has also optioned the film rights to the captain's upcoming memoir.
Actor Kevin Spacey is one of the producers of the upcoming film based on the Maersk Alabama captain's capture and rescue. So is Spacey also on board to star? Yeah, and who should really play Captain Richard Phillips?
No word yet on who's attached to write the script or direct but this smells like a Tony Scott (the thrilling action director of films such as the upcoming "The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3") production to me
